Maintenance Works – Dean Street, Toowong

Road Maintenance Works Dean Street, Toowong

The Department of Transport and Main Roads would like to advise that road works will take place at the intersection of Dean Street and Mount Coot-Tha Road, Toowong.

While works are underway, a detour will be required for one night.

These works are being undertaken as part of TMR’s routine maintenance program to improve the road surface and enhance road safety for all road users.

Work activities

  • Removal and replacement of asphalt.
  • Reinstatement of line marking.

Timing

  • Works will take place early May 2024 and are expected to take one night to complete, construction and weather conditions permitting.
  • Typical construction hours will be from 8pm to 5am, Sunday 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 during the day may be required.
  • While works are underway, access to Dean Street will be detoured for one night between 9pm and 5am:
    • Eastbound traffic on Mount Coot-Tha Road will be detoured as follows:
      • Traffic will continue eastbound on Mount Coot-Tha Road then take the third exit at the roundabout to Miskin Street, then turn right onto Terrace Street and then right back onto Dean Street in the respective direction.
    • Westbound traffic on Mount Coot-Tha Road will be detoured as follows:
      • Traffic will continue westbound on Mount Coot-Tha Road and will be directed to perform a U-turn at the roundabout.
      • From here traffic will use the next roundabout and take the third exit onto Miskin Street, then take the second right onto Terrace Street and then the first right back onto Dean Street in the respective direction.
    • Northbound traffic on Dean Street will be detoured as follows:
      • Traffic will be directed to perform a U-turn on Dean Street and then head back southbound.
      • From here traffic will turn left onto Terrace Street, then left onto Miskin Street and head in the respective direction.

Expected impacts

  • Changed traffic conditions: Temporary traffic detours, lane and road closures, temporary speed limit reductions and short-term traffic disruptions. Please allow extra time when planning your travel and follow the directions of roadside signage and traffic controllers.
  • Temporary construction noise: Heavy machinery will be in use, nearby residents and businesses can expect increased noise, dust and odour. Reversing beepers and flashing lights will be used for safety.

On 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.

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

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

The event is finished.
