MURPHY ROAD AND ELLISON ROAD INTERSECTION UPGRADE
Brisbane City Council is planning to upgrade the Murphy Road and Ellison Road intersection at Geebung to improve traffic efficiency, reduce congestion and increase safety for all road users.
Council is planning to install a signalised intersection to replace the existing roundabout at Murphy Road and Ellison Road, Geebung including some associated widening adjacent to the intersection. These works will improve traffic , reduce congestion, increase safety for road users and will help cater for existing and future traffic demands along this busy corridor.
Council is committing $1.3 billion on more than 90 road improvement projects to take real action on congestion in Brisbane, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting residents home quicker and safer.
The existing roundabout at Murphy Road and Ellison Road is currently operating at capacity in the morning peak and over capacity in the evening peak, with long delays and queues on the southern and northern approaches. Congestion through the intersection is expected to increase without intervention.
The project includes upgrading Murphy Road from two to four lanes from the Gympie Road intersection to the Butt Street intersection. The Kittyhawk Drive and Murphy Road intersection will be upgraded to cater for future traffic flows and improve the road alignment. The Butt Street and Murphy Road intersection will be signalised to improve safety for pedestrians and vehicles accessing Butt Street.
