$700,000 of resurfacing works are about to start on the Bruce Highway south from Coochin Creek.

North Coast District director Doug Wass said three kilometres of resurfacing works on the southbound fast lane of the Bruce Highway are set to start on 30 May.

"The project should take about seven nights to complete, weather permitting, and will provide an improved road surface and smoother driving conditions for motorists," Mr Wass said.

"The project will involve the removal of the existing road surface, complete asphalt resurfacing and line marking."

Mr Wass said given the busy nature of this section of highway, time and effort had been taken to ensure the work was done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Works will be completed at night between the hours of 8pm and 5am to minimise disruption to motorists; although there may be some minor delays through the work zone.

Traffic controllers and reduced speed limits will be in place, and we thank everyone for their patience and remind motorists to allow for the changed conditions to ensure safety through the worksite.
