To accommodate construction for the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade, from Sunday 30 June (during nightworks) until mid-August, both northbound lanes of a section of University Way (from James Cook Drive to Sippy Downs
Drive intersection), will be temporarily closed to traffic. All traffic will be moved to the two, southbound lanes of University Way, with one lane operating in each direction. Access from James Cook Drive to University Way will be left in, left out only (no right turns available). A reduced speed limit of 40km per hour will apply. Works will take place over 24 hours, and up to 7 days a week. Traffic control will be in operation as required.
The fourth and final stage of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade – between the Sunshine Motorway and Siena College – will be constructed from September 2018 to December 2019.
Construction to widen the road will start in September 2018 (weather permitting). Service relocations and earthworks will start in August.
There will be some temporary traffic changes during work. Traffic management will be in place to inform motorists.
For more information, please contact the project team for these upgrades via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call council's Project Officer on (07) 5475 7272.
