Moreton Bay Regional Council Green light for safer roads
Five road safety projects in Moreton Bay have been given the green light.
Moreton Bay Regional Council Asset, Construction and Maintenance Spokesperson Councillor Peter Flannery said projects in Narangba, Bunya, Bray Park, Murrumba Downs and Redcliffe would all get the go-ahead after council successfully received $1.164 million in funding as part of the Federal Government’s 2017/18 Black Spot funding program.
$465,000 - Upgrade the New Settlement Road and Young Road roundabout at Narangba and install dedicated cycle lanes;
$325,400 - Road widening, new guardrails and improved sight distance along Bunya Road between Dugandan Road and Farm Road;
$196,800 - Extend the right turn lane, dedicated right turn lights and the relocation of bus stops at the Kensington Way and Sovereign Avenue intersection, Bray Park;
$156,900 - New single-lane roundabout at the Klingner Road, Redcliffe Parade and Prince Edward Parade intersection at Redcliffe; and
$20,400 - Upgrade for the Dohles Rocks Road and McClintock Drive intersection, Murrumba Downs.
“These are projects that will improve road safety for our region’s motorists, cyclists and pedestrians,” Cr Flannery said.
“Initial concept designs have already been completed and the upgrades will be delivered throughout 2017/18.
“I want to thank the Federal Government for their contribution through its Black Spot program. This funding reinforces the importance of these upgrades for local residents and our region.
“These projects build on council’s ongoing commitment towards the region’s road network and it forms part of council’s overall $87 million investment in 2017/18.”
