GOONDIWINDI NATURAL HERITAGE & WATER PARK OPERATIONAL RULES

From water skiing, swimming, scenic walking trails, bird watching, or using the BBQ, parkland and playground, the Goondiwindi Natural Heritage & Water Park offers fantastic recreational facilities for the whole community to enjoy.

Coming into the peak season for water skiing, Council would like to remind users of the waterway that operational rules apply. It is your responsibility to be aware of and adhere to these operational rules, which are on display at the entrance of the Water Park boat ramp.

HIGHWAY REHABILITATION WORKS

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will be carrying out pavement rehabilitation works on the Cunningham Highway (Ipswich – Warwick), Cunningham Highway (Warwick – Inglewood), Gore Highway (Millmerran – Goondiwindi) and Leichhardt Highway (Miles – Goondiwindi) at various locations.

Work is expected to commence Friday, 25 August 2017 and be completed by mid-December 2017, weather permitting.  The works will be conducted as day works between 6.00am and 6.00pm with a reduced speed limit of 40km/h in place during these hours. One lane will remain open at all times and portable traffic signals will be in place to minimise traffic delays, however short delays of up to 5 minutes can be expected.

The speed limit will return to 60km/h outside of work hours.

The safety of motorists and road workers is TMR’s top priority and motorists are asked to drive to the traffic conditions and obey all signage and instructions from traffic controllers during the course of the works.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during the delivery of these important works and apologise for any inconvenience they may cause.
