The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has announced the south bound lanes of the Caboolture River Bridge will be closed from this Monday 27 June, with traffic to be diverted onto the North Bound Bridge with one lane of traffic operating in each direction.
The closure is expected to increase congestion for some members travelling between Caboolture and Morayfield, and both Caboolture Sports Club and Centenary Lakes Sports Club will be closely monitoring the implications of these works for patrons and services provided by the club.
Caboolture Sports Club CEO Kelvin Patch said the most likely impacts would be for patrons accessing Centenary Lakes Sports Club & Function Centre, as well as the club’s courtesy bus service to both venues.
“For Centenary Lakes Sports Club & Function Centre it will be business as usual,” Mr Patch said.
“For patrons travelling north from Morayfield to Centenary Lakes, access to the venue will still be available via a left turn off Morayfield Rd, then proceeding through the sporting complex.
“However for patrons travelling south from Caboolture, they will not be able to make a turn right from Morayfield Rd into Centenary Lakes. Instead the best access to Centenary Lakes will be via King St, turning into Riverview St, then entering the Centenary Lakes complex via the western entrance near the netball courts.
“We will also be monitoring an impacts of the bridge closure to our courtesy bus service and if required we will make amendments to our timeframes.
“We hope these impacts are minimal and thank members in advance for their patience if services to complete our pick-up and drop-off services take slightly longer than usual.”
TMR have estimated that it will take 12 months to construct the new bridge, during which time closures will remain in place.
To avoid traffic delays during works, motorists are encouraged to:
• Utilise access via King Street to Centenary Lakes for patrons travelling from the north
• Avoid the bridge site and take alternate routes, such as the Bruce Highway
• Avoid travelling during morning and afternoon peak hours
• Use online traffic tools or apps to check live traffic conditions to find the quickest route
