Motorists planning to travel to Rockhampton for Beef Australia 2012 are advised to plan their trip well in advance due to an unprecedented number of road reconstruction works that are currently underway on Queensland's road network.

Operation Queenslander is the largest reconstruction effort in Queensland's history, rebuilding communities, fixing infrastructure, and restoring regional economies after flooding and cyclone events in 2010/11.

Works are underway on key roads such as the Bruce, Capricorn, Leichhardt, Gregory, Burnett and Warrego highways.

Work sites on these roads will increase travel times and motorists are advised to plan their journey as delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected at each work site.

Motorists should drive to the changed conditions and obey all signage as safety is our number one priority.

This program of works is being delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), a joint federal and state initiative.

Under these arrangements the Australian Government provides 75% of the funding with 25% from the Queensland Government.

  • Before travelling to Beef Australia 2012, visit www.131940.qld.gov.au, or call 13 19 40 to check where road works are taking place.
