Proposed upgrades to the Mount Lindesay Highway and Logan Motorway interchange will be up for discussion at a community meeting in May.
The information session to be held in Jimboomba is organised by Transurban Queensland, which owns and operates the go via network.
Transurban, together with the Queensland government, has developed a proposal for the $450 million Logan Enhancement Project, which includes upgrading interchanges along the Logan Motorway and widening parts of the Logan Motorway and Gateway Extension Motorway.
The proposed changes at the Mt Lindesay Highway interchange are the subject of a Change.org petition, which was started by Forestdale couple Stan and Suz Corbett earlier this month.
The petition calls on the state government to stop traffic crossing over the Mount Lindesay Highway to enter the Logan Motorway and instead direct traffic onto the Johnson Road loop.
The changes proposed as part of the Logan Enhancement Project include traffic lights at the right-hand turn, which would replace a stop sign.
At present, drivers heading north on the Mt Lindesay Highway often stop illegally to ease congestion caused by cars waiting to cross the highway to travel west on the motorway.
A spokesperson for Transurban Queensland said the Logan Enhancement Project also includes upgrading the Wembley Road interchange and providing new south-facing Compton Road ramps.
“If approved, the project will deliver a safer and more efficient transport network by relieving local traffic congestion, reducing travel times and enhancing connectivity with other major road networks,” the spokesperson said.
The community information session will be held at Jimboomba Shopping Centre on Saturday, May 21 from 9am to 4pm.
“This is a great opportunity for local residents to come and meet the team, find out more about what is being proposed and have their say,” the spokesperson said.
