Council have scheduled the upgrade of Narangba Road from north of Torrens Road, Kurwongbah to south of Eucumbene Drive, Petrie.
The intersection upgrades will improve road safety and cater for increasing traffic demand.
The major changes will include:
- installation of traffic signals at the Narangba Road intersections with both Torrens Road and Eucumbene Drive, including pedestrian crossing facilities
- road widening, including additional traffic lane and separated turning and bicycle lanes
- new road pavement, kerb and channel, footpaths and kerb ramps
- additional street lights and green infrastructure, for example fauna protection/crossing.
The works at both the Torrens Road and Eucumbene Drive intersections have secured Federal Government Black Spot road safety funding. The major crash trend involves right-turning traffic into Torrens Road and out of Eucumbene Drive. The upgrade to traffic signals is expected to reduce the likelihood of these crash types.
