Council announces plans for Boundary Road safety upgrade
Moreton Bay Regional Council has announced plans to reconstruct a 230m stretch of road at Dakabin to reduce the risk of crashes and improve overall road safety in the local area.
Division 7 Councillor Denise Sims said plans for the Boundary Road upgrade included realigning the curve near Bazeridge Drive, relocating stormwater and utility services and widening the road surface.
“As someone who regularly drives along Boundary Road, I know just how important this project will be for commuters, residents and users of the local pool. The road realignment will reduce the speed at which drivers approach the curve currently, and in turn seek to reduce the number of crashes occurring in the area,” Cr Sims said.
“The scope of works will build on existing road safety initiatives in the local area, ensuring local motorists and residents can travel commute to work, school, the local shops and home.”
The announcement comes after council successfully secured $747,000 funding for the project through the Federal Government’s Black Spot Program.
Cr Sims acknowledged the Federal Government’s funding, and said the project would add to council’s $109 million investment for the 2018/19 financial year towards road and transport infrastructure across the region.
Construction is expected to commence during 2018/19 financial year.
