Christmas will come early for motorists using Waterford-Tamborine Road – who have experienced delay, entry point conflict or traffic congestion – with works on the $40 million intersection upgrade set to commence in coming weeks.
Main Roads and Road Safety Minister Mark Bailey said the first stages of the project should be complete by the end of the year.
“As part of our commitment to improving road safety, four key intersections will be upgraded and 2.6km of road will be duplicated between Hotz Road and Anzac Avenue,” he said.
“These early works involve the relocation of services, fencing and clearing works in preparation for major construction.”
The project, set to improve the Waterford-Tamborine Road south of Logan Village and through to Yarrabilba, was designed to boost traffic flow and safety for all road users.
The thoroughfare currently caters to more than 14,000 vehicles daily.
The upgrade will be delivered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), in partnership with Economic Development Queensland.
Member for Logan Linus Power said the project will create “an average of 76 direct jobs” throughout the course of the upgrade.
“Major construction is scheduled to begin in mid-next year and is estimated to take a year and half to complete,” he said.
“Beginning at Anzac Avenue on the southern outskirts of Logan Village, the upgrade will travel south to Hotz Road and will include a centre median traffic island to separate north and southbound lanes.
“Safer intersections will be constructed at Anzac Avenue, Stockleigh Road, Pioneer Drive and Hotz Road.
“In order to achieve the best outcomes for residents and businesses in the Logan Village area and surrounds it is vital that we work together.”
