New Caboolture North-East Primary School - School Access and Road Construction

In January 2016, the Queensland Government began construction of the new Caboolture North East primary school at Cottrill Road. The new school will officially open on 23 January 2017, taking enrolments from 1 November 2016 for Prep to Year 6.

Location

The new school will front onto Cottrill Road, with the school’s main bus, car and pedestrian access for parents and students also off Cottrill Road. A school layout is displayed on the leaflet [PDF 320KB].

Road access to the school

The original proposal for road access to the school has been revised and upgraded following negotiations between the Department of Education and Training, Department of Transport and Main Roads, and Moreton Bay Regional Council. 

The revised road access plan will accelerate construction of the extension of Cottrill Road through to Pumicestone Road, and will result in a new four-way signalised intersection with Ardrossan Road — as well as widening of Pumicestone Road nearby. A layout of the proposed roadwork improvements and construction stages are shown on the attached plan [PDF 2.7MB].

Due to the additional time required to complete design and construction of these works, this new road link will not be available for the majority of the 2017 school year. As a result, car access to the school during 2017 will be via Dances Road, however pedestrian links will be provided across Pumicestone Road from the start of the 2017 school year.

Works have already commenced on localised widening to Pumicestone Road. The extension of Cottrill Road for construction of the school carpark access and school bus facility is expected to commence in August 2016 and be completed in January 2017 for the start of the school year. Construction of Cottrill Road through to Pumicestone Road, signalising of this 4-way intersection at Ardrossan Road and upgrading of Pumicestone Road to 4 lanes approaching the intersection will follow-on from February 2017.

Cost

The total cost of the new roadworks is approximately $9.3M. Of this, the Queensland Government is contributing $6.3M and Moreton Bay Regional Council will contribute $3.1M.
