Through a regular review of road crash data, Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) has identified that the intersection of Victoria Avenue and King Street, Woody Point has a history of crashes. It has also been identified that the intersection of Victoria Avenue and King Street requires an upgrade to traffic signals to address increasing traffic volumes.
MBRC has received part‐funding of costs to undertake safety improvements to this intersection from the Australian Federal Government Black Spot Programme. The remaining funds required for the construction of works have been included in the 2016/17 MBRC budget and the project has now proceeded to the detailed design stage.
- traffic signals
- signalised pedestrian crossings across all legs
- removal of the existing supervised children’s crossing
- bicycle lanes
- footpath improvements
- new landscaping
- resurfacing of the intersection and approaches
- stormwater drainage upgrades
Through these works MBRC aims to:
- Improve safety for all transport users
- Increase intersection capacity and reduce delays for
- Ensure continued efficient intersection operation for road
users into the future
- Renew the road pavements and stormwater drainage to provide
improved road corridor
- Improve access for all transport users, including cyclists
Construction is currently planned to start late 2016 and
continue into 2017 with as much work as possible undertaken during the school holidays. To reduce the
impact on traffic and to minimise construction time, council is considering a complete
intersection closure with signed detour routes for through traffic. Local and property access will be
maintained though this period. Further advice will be provided closer to the start of construction. View the project map on the project fact sheet [PDF 225KB].
