Detour on Ashburn Road-Roma

Maranoa Regional Council is reminding residents that a temporary side track and detour on Ashburn Road (between Miscamble Street East and George Street East) in Roma is now in place.

The detour is part of the Roma Flood Mitigation Project – Stage 2A and is expected to be in place for approximately two months (weather permitting).

The temporary detour will enable the excavation to continue of the Eastern Diversion Drain and the construction of the new concrete causeway.

The side track has been constructed to accommodate two (2) lanes of traffic with a gravel pavement.

Temporary signage and electronic variable message boards are in place to warn and guide motorists through the site.

As Ashburn Road is a strategic link for local residents and provides access to Roma’s Waste Facility, the low level concrete causeway, when complete, will ensure Ashburn Road will remain open after the construction of the Eastern Diversion Drain.
