Last March, the Lord Mayor and I committed to improving the intersection of Green Camp and Tilley Roads during this term.
This $15M project was a great start, but would not have achieved complete four laning of the corridor.
Now, thanks to a confirmed Federal contribution of $10M, we are able to increase the project scope to a full $28M corridor upgrade.
Council has allocated funds to Green Camp Road improvements in the past three budgets:
- 2015/16: $380,000 Road Network Design
- 2016/17: $421,000 Road Network Design (Manly Rd to Rickertt Rd)
- 2017/18: $8,643,000 Improve Local Transport Networks (Green Camp Road, Wakerley)
However, this latest boost thanks to Federal MPs Andrew Laming and Ross Vasta means that Council can deliver a true congestion busting project that will benefit both Brisbane and Redland City.
Funding allocated over the past three years means this project is now shovel-ready and able to proceed.
The land resumption process has already begun with affected landowners.
Technical investigations and service location will continue through 2017 before construction commences in 2018.
An indicative timetable is featured below, but is subject to change, weather permitting.
As I mentioned, this $28.2 million project is being jointly funded by the Brisbane City Council and the Federal Government.
Council has invested $18.2M with the remaining $10M coming from the Federal Government in two tranches.
Despite being asked, the State Government is contributing nothing to this project.
Council is committed to keeping local residents, businesses and the broader community informed about the corridor upgrade and will provide regular updates as the project progresses.
