Queensland Rail works to begin on Eudlo rail bridge


An $800,000 project to maintain infrastructure on the Eudlo School Road rail bridge will be carried out this month (November 2020).

Queensland Rail's Head of South East Queensland, Scott Riedel, said the infrastructure works would take approximately two weeks to complete and involved repainting, rail inspections, and general maintenance.

"Safety is our first priority and it is important ageing infrastructure is properly maintained to ensure the safe travel of freight and passenger services along this line," he said.

"Works will include the assembly of scaffold, high pressure blasting to remove paint and rust, inspections and repairs of rail components, repainting, and general maintenance."

Mr Riedel said to ensure the safe delivery of the project, Eudlo School Road would be partially closed to motorists.

"Scaffolding will be in place for the duration of the works and will result in Eudlo School Road being closed to motorists between Ash Lane and Rosebed Street from Tuesday 17 November," he said.

"Traffic control will be in place to assist motorists with diversions and we thank Eudlo residents for their patience as we carry out these important works."

Eudlo School Road (between Ash Lane and Rosebed Street) will be closed from approximately 6am Tuesday 17 November 2020 until 6pm Monday 30 November 2020, weather permitting.

Vehicle detours will be in place via Corlis Ave and Citrus Road for the duration of the closure.
