The state government is set to spend $8 million on improving traffic congestion and road safety at Logan Village.
In the move, traffic signals will replace the roundabout at the intersection of Waterford-Tamborine Road, North Street and Quinzeh Creek Road.
Minister for Main Roads Mark Bailey and Member for Logan Linus Power visited the site to make the announcement on June 19.
Mr Power said this upgrade will allow motorists to spend less time in the car and more time at home with their families.
“(Currently) cars are uncertain about coming through (the roundabout) and the traffic then backs up,” he said.
“This will bring clarity… and reduce the congestion by more than half.”
Mr Power said the new signals would provide safer crossing areas for students and residents.
“I’m pushing for the work to be done as soon as possible,” he said.
Mr Bailey said the funding was a great result for the region.
“We know the roundabout at the intersection is often congested during peak hour traffic, particularly during school drop off and pick up times,” he said.
“This congestion is mostly due to the significant growth the region has seen in recent years and installing traffic signals at the intersection will make a big difference to travel times for local motorists.”
The funding is in addition to the $40 million partnership project with Economic Development Queensland to upgrade intersections along Waterford–Tamborine Road between Anzac Avenue and Hotz Road, Logan Village.
