As part of the Queensland Government’s Safer Roads Sooner program, more than 42 projects across the state will receive over $30 million of funding next financial year. Albany Creek will benefit from this following the recent announcement on the upgrades of the most dangerous intersections in the Moreton Bay region.

The Albany Creek Road, Ferguson St and Wruck Crescent will be upgraded and it is expected to cost $595,000. The project involves extending both right-turn lanes on Albany Creek Rd and modify traffic signals to control right-turn movements.

Other intersection upgrades in the region include Eatons Crossing Rd and Eden Drive in Strathpine and Oxley Ave and Irene St in Redcliffe.

The upgrades will begin in the 2019-20 financial year.

The government program continues to provide road safety upgrades for the residents. Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey said, “Any death on our roads is one too many, so initiatives like this are vital to ensure we have a safe road network for road users.”

The program is funded through the Targeted Road Safety Program. Other projects in the program include:

  • Three road safety projects on the Warrego Highway near Ipswich
  • Intersection upgrades on Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road and Oakey-Pittsworth Road
  • Shoulder widening, line marking and guardrail installation at a section of the New England Highway near Cooyar
  • Traffic signal installation at the intersection of Brighton-Redcliffe Road (Oxley Avenue) and Irene Street
  • Lane and shoulder widening on curves on the Tamborine-Oxenford Road near Wongawallan
  • Intersection improvements at Proserpine-Shute Harbour Road and Gregory Cannon Valley Road
