Brisbane–Beenleigh Road (Kingston Road)
Design is now underway on upgrades to two intersections on Brisbane–Beenleigh Road (Kingston Road) thanks to an $11.2 million commitment from the Palaszczuk Government.
“Of the $11.2 million allocation, about $7.3 million will be for extra turning lanes at the intersection of Kingston and Compton roads,” Member for Waterford Ms Fentiman said.
“This means more vehicles will be able to get through the intersection faster, increasing capacity and efficiency.
“The remaining $3.9 million will go to upgrading the intersection at Kingston Road and Juers Street, which will create a major improvement for traffic flow along both north and south-bound approaches.’’
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the improvements would increase traffic flow on the approaches once constructed.
“Design of both intersection upgrades will continue through to early 2019,” Mr Bailey said.
“Once design is complete, early works will be carried out and following this, construction can begin.
“This is currently expected to commence in 2020”
