Motorists are being warned to take caution at the new traffic signals at the Mount Lindesay Highway and Camp Cable Road intersection as they have now been switched on.

Final tasks will be now undertaken at the intersection including revegetation, finalising the installation of additional signage and completion of the site tidy-up.

The $5 million project to install traffic lights was part of the state government’s Safer Roads Sooner program in order to reduce delays and improving safety for motorists.

Member for Logan Linus Power said the lights were switched on September 29 as the project approached completion.

“Up until now, it has been a challenge to enter and exit Camp Cable Road to and from the highway,” he said.

“The newly upgraded intersection includes dedicated turning lanes, marked cycle lanes and improved outlining.

“20 new street lights were also installed to improve visibility and safety at night.”

Mr Power said the project was a significant investment for the area with works carried out over a 700-metre section of the highway and a 200-metre section of Camp Cable Road.

“An average of 22 direct jobs were supported over the life of the project,” he said.

“The work is not over yet, over coming months, the traffic signal timing between the intersection and Johanna and Tamborine streets intersection will be monitored.

“We want to make sure we get the best possible traffic flow results for the community and that the new lights time well with the existing infrastructure.”

Mr Power thanked motorists and residents for their patience since work started in April.​
