Dear Neighbour,

Over the next few weeks, we will implement stage three of our Southern Connection works programme. The Southern Connection is where we will connect State Highway 1 (SH1) to the new motorway, north of the Johnstones Hill Tunnels. During stage two of the programme, we temporarily shifted traffic from southbound to the northbound lane. In mid-February, we will reverse this, transferring the northbound traffic to the existing southbound lane. These changes will ensure crews have a safe working area while they progress the works that will eventually connect it to the new motorway.

When will the work happen?

The new road layout on SH1, north of the Johnstones Hill Tunnels, will be in place on the morning of Tuesday 23 February, the changes will be in place for most of the year.

The road layout changes will be formed over a period of two nights on Sunday 21 February and Monday 22 February 2021 from 9.00pm – 5.00am. Once the new road layout is in place, works will continue for a further three nights from Tuesday 23 February to Thursday 25 February 2021, this will enable us to complete the Hibiscus Coast Highway tie-in works.

Stop/go traffic management will be in place on SH1 north of the tunnels while the five nights of works take place. This is to ensure the safety of our workers and road users, while limiting disruption to traffic flows as far as practicable.

Thank you for your patience and support while we complete this important work. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
