Bruce Highway rest stop to close for upgrade works
MOTORISTS looking to rest and revive on the long drive on the Bruce Highway between Rockhampton and Mackay will need to plan an alternative stopping location after the Kunwarara rest area temporarily closes tomorrow.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads advises that works are being undertaken to upgrade the entrance and exit points of Kunwarara rest area.
During these works, the rest area will be closed. These works also include construction of amenity facilities and installation of shade shelters.
Works will be undertaken daily between 6am to 6pm from 8 October 2020 and are expected to be completed mid-November 2020.
Road users are reminded to exercise caution and observe all warning signs, speed restrictions and traffic controller directions during the works.
