Croppa Creek Road, North Star Level Crossing upgrade

From 1 April 2022, our contractor Trans4m Rail will commence level crossing and drainage upgrade works on Croppa Creek Road, south of North Star.



April 2022 - July 2022

Working hours

7am to 6pm, seven days a week


Croppa Creek Road

  • North Star
Local Government Area
  • Gwydir Shire

Work being done

Works will include installing new drainage structures and upgrades to level crossing 922.

To facilitate the works, a temporary gravel access road has been constructed to divert traffic around the existing level crossing and accommodate road trains.

To allow for drainage works on both sides of Croppa Creek Road, a traffic lane switch will occur midway throughout the works to provide a safe work zone during construction.

What is a traffic switch?

Diverting traffic onto a different section of road is referred to as a traffic switch. Switching traffic helps us minimise any traffic congestion caused by construction works.

Motorists are urged to follow changing traffic conditions on site, including speed zone reductions and directional signage.

What can I expect

  • Trucks and other vehicles entering and exiting the construction site
  • Construction machinery and equipment operating on site adjacent to live traffic
  • Delivery of materials and equipment
  • Some of these works will be noisy and mitigation measures will be in place
  • Some temporary traffic delays are expected during work hours.

Machinery used

  • Trucks,
  • cranes,
  • graders,
  • excavators,
  • loaders,
  • rollers and
  • water/vacuum excavation trucks

will be used within the construction impact zone.

How we’re managing impacts

  • Traffic control will be in place, where required
  • Water carts will be on site to wet down areas to assist in managing dust.
