Hundreds of trees mulched to make way for new interchange
A MASSIVE mulching machine has been working overtime to chew up hundreds of trees in the path of the new Tinana Interchange.
The trees have been cleared in preparation for the $38 million upgrade.
Traffic lights are also being installed at the Gympie Rd and Iindah Rd West intersection near the entrance to Tinana State School.
Improvements will be made to the highway on-ramp from Gympie Rd and the existing Three Mile Rd West intersection.
To minimise traffic disruptions while the revamp is underway, a two-way detour will be established west of the existing highway.
More information about traffic control measures will be given to the Tinana community soon.
Brisbane construction company Georgiou Group was awarded the project. It is expected to take about 12 months to complete, weather permitting.
