Section of Goldsmith Street closed to traffic
Published: 17 May 2021
Culvert replacement works will commence next week on Goldsmith Street and McKenney Street in South Mackay.
The existing culverts are deteriorating and require immediate replacement.
Works are expected to commence from Monday, May 24, and continue until August.
These works will be conducted under a full road closure at the culvert site. The closure will remain in place for the full duration of the works.
A full road closure is necessary to replace the existing culverts as they span the full width of the road.
Goldsmith Street will be closed to motorists from Campbell to Christie streets, with detours and traffic management in place.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area and find alternative routes where possible.
Works will be undertaken between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting.
Some noise and dust disturbances are expected due to the use of various plant and equipment on site, however any impact to residents will be minimised where possible.
