Gateway Motorway

  • Backfill scour areas around noise barrier wall Timing
  • Works will commence early June and be completed late July 2024, construction and weather conditions permitting.
  • Typical construction hours will be from 7.00 pm to 5.00 am, Monday to Friday.
  • Night works are required for road user safety, and to avoid what would otherwise be extensive traffic queuing and disruption to the road network.
  • While most of the works will be undertaken at night, some Saturday or other out of hours works may be required.

Expected impacts:


  • Temporary diversions to the bike path may be in place during works.
  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect to experience short-term impacts including increased noise, dust, and odour during the works.

Gateway Motorway

  • Traffic changes will be in effect, including partial road closures, road shoulder closures, temporary speed reductions and short-term traffic disruptions.
  • Please allow extra time when planning your travel and follow the directions of roadside signage and traffic controllers.

Upon completion, TMR officers will continue to review the site for up to three months. During this time, TMR will assess the work undertaken for longevity and quality. In some cases TMR may need to request further work at the location to rectify any defects.

Every effort will be made to minimise impacts on the local community and surrounds.

Assistance will be provided through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

TMR appreciates your patience and cooperation while these important works are carried out.
