Operational notification #51: Port Drive Upgrade – Changed traffic conditions from 9 November 2017

The following traffic changes will be in place on port roads, weather and site conditions permitting:

From Thursday 9 November, all southbound / outbound traffic will be diverted onto the permanent alignment on Port Drive between Tanker Street and the start of the Port of Brisbane Motorway at Export Street.

Northbound / inbound traffic will remain on the current alignment.

To make these changes, roadworks to move barriers and line mark the road will be undertaken out of hours between 8pm and 5am from Wednesday 8 November.

This traffic change will allow the construction work to be carried out on the old lanes of Port Drive. This will include the demolition of Ampol Bridge.

For the safety of roadworkers and other road users, motorist are reminded to drive to the road conditions, obey signage and adhere to speed limits, particularly as vehicles enter the section of Port Drive construction where the speed limit has been reduced to 50km/h. Electronic VMS signs will be displayed on each approach and the Queensland Police Service (QPS) will be patrolling the area. 

We thank all motorists for their patience while this work is underway. Should you have any queries, please contact the Port Drive Project team via email or contact the 24hr project hotline 1800 895 929.
