Work on a major road project in the Australian state of Queensland is being delayed due to safety concerns. The contractor, Cintra, has been ordered by the local authorities in the state to stop work on two piers that will support the viaduct stretch of the US$1.21 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project. This follows two recent incidents, which are now being investigated by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland. The project is for a 41km bypass to the north of Toowoomba connecting the Gore Highway with the Warrego Highway.
