Project delivery ensures safer roads

Project delivery ensures safer roads

An earlier stage of New Beith Rd (Hobury Rd to Citrine St) that was completed in 2017.

The third stage of an upgrade to New Beith Rd is one of the major projects set to commence as part of Logan City Council’s $114 million roads infrastructure delivery program.

Acting Roads and Water Infrastructure Director Daryl Ross, said a number of projects awaiting construction had been progressed utilising Council’s new Civil Construction Services Panel.

“The panel positions Council well to deliver its capital program,” Mr Ross said.

“We are set to commence the delivery of major projects, such as the $15 million reconstruction of New Beith Rd.”

The third stage of New Beith Rd will be between the roundabout at Pub Ln and Citrine St in New Beith.

It will involve the reconstruction of a 1.6 kilometre section of the two-lane arterial road.

Raising the road will reduce the impact of flooding as will the reconstruction of the roundabout at Pub Lane to a higher elevation.

Other major projects set to start are:

  • Camena St catchment master drainage, Shailer Park
  • Dryandra Dr catchment master drainage, Eagleby
  • Kinloch Rd catchment master drainage, Daisy Hill
  • Milne St, Ludke Ln, Muchow St master drainage, Beenleigh.

A number of major road maintenance projects have also started, or are due to start, as part of Council’s commitment to improving and maintaining roads.

Mr Ross said road maintenance had been a high priority in Council’s budget with a number of major projects underway or recently completed.

These include:

  • Barnes Rd rehabilitation, Cedar Vale (completed)
  • Hotz Rd reconstruction, Jimboomba
  • Nash Rd pavement rehabilitation, Jimboomba
  • Rosia Rd, Park Ridge (completed)
  • Undullah Rd pavement rehabilitation, Woodhill
  • Priestdale Rd pavement rehabilitation, Rochedale South
