Brisbane City Council is upgrading the intersection at New Cleveland Road and Caladium Street to reduce congestion and increase road safety and accessibility for all road users.
New Cleveland Road was identified as a corridor requiring improvements to reduce congestion and improve safety under the Gumdale Area Traffic Study 2010.
The intersection of New Cleveland Road and Caladium Street caters for a large volume of local commuter traffic and commercial vehicles travelling to the nearby Gateway Motorway.
Council is undertaking the following works:
- constructing a new right hand turn pocket on New Cleveland Road
- constructing a pedestrian crossing and refuge point on New Cleveland Road
- installing splitter islands, kerb build-outs and pram ramps on Caladium Street
- relocating the existing bus stop on Caladium Street
- installing kerb and channel
- providing footpath improvements
- improving street lighting
- removing six trees to facilitate the intersection upgrade.
Construction will generally take place Monday to Saturday between 7am and 6pm. Some out-of-hours work may also be required. If out-of-hours works are required, advance notification of these works will be provided.
The project will involve impacts such as construction noise, dust and vibration, temporary lane closures, vegetation removal and minor delays for motorists. Traffic control will be in place to ensure motorist safety is maintained during construction of the project.
Construction is expected to start the week of 30 May 2016 and be complete by mid-August 2016, weather permitting.
