The Baw Baw Shire Council said a signed detour will be put in place from Monday 4 March and the road will open on Friday 8 March if weather permits.

Restricted speeds still in place

Acting Baw Baw CEO Melissa Harris responded to a question on notice about restricted speeds on that stretch of road at a council meeting last month.

“‘Road work ahead 60 kmph (sic)’ signs have been installed to ensure traffic safety along Queen Street while works for Queen Street Business Park are underway,” Ms Harris said.

“As part of the development, road widening and intersection works along Queen Street have been recently completed and construction of Warragul-Nilma Shared path is still underway.

“As a road authority, installation of these temporary speed signs was a requirement of VicRoads.”

    given 99% of the cyclists that use queen st ride on the road it seems a waste if resources to me.

    heres an idea, get the 6am morning cyclists to detour up north road, albert st and copelands road and then along No1 rd en-route to bloomfields road instead of going along queen st extension,

    that way you could spend the money fixing up No1 road for both the cyclists AND motorists to use.
