Dr Christian Rowan, the State Member for Moggill, today welcomed the news that the
Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will be undertaking works on
Moggill Road between Bainbridge Drive and Grandview Road to improve safety.
“For too long the road infrastructure needs of the electorate of Moggill have been
neglected. One of my main commitments, during the recent the election, was to ensure the delivery of vastly improved roads, including addressing black spot areas”, Dr Rowan said.
“I’m pleased to advise that works will be carried out from early July 2015 until
late October 2015, weather and construction conditions permitting”, Dr
Construction will predominantly be undertaken at night from Sunday to Friday
between 7.00pm and 5.00am due to traffic volumes on Moggill Road. Some works will also be undertaken, from time to time, during the day or on weekends for the safety of road workers and motorists.
These safety improvement works include:
Widening a 1.3km section of Moggill Road between Bainbridge Drive and Grandview Road
Improving the existing U-turn facilities
Installation of a wide center line to separate traffic movements and to
Removal of some vegetation to provide enough space for widening works
Dr Rowan warned that motorists may experience short traffic delays and
lane closures during the works. There will also be temporary reductions in the speed limit. Traffic control measures will be in place to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists.
“The Department of Main Roads apologises for any inconvenience these works may cause to residents and motorists and appreciates your patience while these important
safety works are carried out”, Dr Rowan said.
“I’m sure the end result will make a big difference to the traffic
congestion on this section of road and ensure improved safety for motorists.”
