Cordalba: Cane cutting starts, new warning issued

18 Jun

With the sugar cane cutting season about to start, the annual reminder that motorists should be alert to the presence of trains on railways that have been dormant since the end of last year’s cutting season.

Also highlighted has been progress with eliminating a level crossing of the Isis Highway at Cordalba where, for the 2013 season the crossing will remain in use. However, as motorists will observe the new span that will take the road over the railway from before the start of the 2014 season is already in place with associated highway works underway. Motorists have been advised to take particular care as the new structure and on-going works reduce the distance over which a cane train can be seen approaching the level crossing.

The overpass and associated highway alterations are expected to be commissioned in early 2014.
