Brays Road/McClintock Drive Intersection and Road Upgrade

Background

Council is currently in the process of preparing concept design drawings for a major road and footpath upgrade of Brays Road and McClintock Drive, Murrumba Downs. In 2016 the section of Brays Road between Anzac Avenue and Moreton Street was upgraded as part of the Moreton Bay Rail Link project. Council will now be extending this upgrade from Moreton Street to Twin Lakes Drive including McClintock Drive to Black Duck Creek.

Project objectives

  • Reduce traffic congestion and improve overall efficiency of the road network by addition of lanes and signalization of intersections.
  • Improve safety for all road users by reducing potential conflicts and clarifying driver decision making where possible
  • Provide pedestrian crossing opportunities
  • Retain existing vegetation where possible

Improvement proposal

  • Brays Road is to be widened to four traffic lanes consistent with the previous construction works in 2016
  • Three new sets of traffic lights are proposed along Brays Road at the intersections with Moreton Street, Normanby Road/Living Faith Lutheran Primary School and McClintock Drive. It is proposed that each new set of traffic lights will also have pedestrian crossing facilities
  • New and improved footpaths are to be included along the complete length of the upgrade works
  • On-road bicycle lane facilities are to be included on Brays Road and McClintock Drive
  • Traffic exiting Moreton Street, McClintock Drive and the Living Faith Lutheran Primary School opposite Normanby Road into Brays Road are to be provided with dedicated left and right marked turn lanes
  • Travelling north along Brays Road towards the Anzac Avenue, a separate right turn lane into each intersection is to be provided for Moreton Street, Normanby Drive and Burnett Drive
  • Travelling south along Brays Road towards the Bruce Highway, a separate bus only lane will be provided for right-turns into the southernmost driveway of the Living Faith Lutheran Primary School
  • Intersection geometry for traffic entering Brays Road through the southernmost driveway of the Living Faith Lutheran Primary School is to be adjusted allowing left turns only
  • A new roundabout is to be constructed at the intersection of Brays Road and Twin Lakes Drive
