Price Street, Nambour Bridge Strike Protection Program

November 2015 – February 2016

Queensland Rail will install protection beams on both approaches to the rail bridge over Price Street, Nambour. The protection beams will prevent 'over-height' vehicles striking the bridge, improve transport safety and prevent train delays caused by bridge strikes.

Price Street, Nambour, is the sixth location in the state-wide Bridge Strike Protection Program aimed at improving safety at low-level rail-over-road bridges.

Construction started in November 2015 with completion expected in February 2016, weather permitting.

Queensland Rail will endeavour to minimise disruptions to motorists and surrounding communities during construction.

The important message for drivers is to know your vehicle height.  The maximum clearance height at Price Street, Nambour is 3.3 metres.

New warning signage will be installed by Sunshine City Council as part of this project.
