Major upgrade for Brendale intersection

Moreton Bay Regional Council has awarded a $4.1 million tender for the upgrade of the Kremzow Road and Leitchs Road intersection at Brendale.

 

The upgrade includes new dedicated turning lanes, signalised pedestrian crossings across all parts of the intersection, new road and shared path cycle facilities, concrete pathways and new road surfacing.

 

Deputy Mayor and Division 9 Councillor Mike Charlton said the intersection upgrade would increase the roads’ capacity as well as improve commute times and safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

 

“Every day, Kremzow Road and Leitchs Road connects motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to local businesses in the Brendale area; that’s why council has committed more than $4.1 million to this important project,” Cr Charlton said.

 

The upgrade stretches 350m across Kremzow Road and 170m across Leitchs Road.

 

To minimise disruptions, the majority of construction work will take place at night.

 

Contractors will also maintain the existing two lanes of traffic in each direction between 5am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.

 

Access to side roads, driveways and local businesses will be maintained throughout the construction period.

 

“Please be mindful of work crews and heed all instructions during the construction period; that way we can all get home safe to our families.”

 

Service relocation works have commenced with additional service relocation works to take place in April before construction begins in May. Construction is expected to be complete by August, weather permitting.
