GREAT Northern Highway at the intersection of Reid and Roe highways will close for a weekend in January for urgent asphalt repair works.

From 7pm on Friday, January 20 to 5am on Monday, January 23, access from Reid and Roe highways to Great Northern Highway northbound will be restricted, and only westbound traffic on Roe Highway will have access to Great Northern Highway southbound.

Traffic on Reid and Roe highways will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the intersection and 40km/h speed restrictions will be in place.
