“Put simply, you’re mad if you don’t go here. The wife and I decided to bypass the usual places and thought we’d give this a run, and I am so thankful we found this little gem. The pork burger was delicious, and there were too many beers to sample in one sitting. Staff was friendly and the service quick. A cafe like this has been sorely needed in the Albany Creek / Eatons Hill area for far too long, and they have nailed it. A number of other very tempting items on the menu will see me going back again and again.”

“Had a lovely meal here last night. Great range of Craft Beer, easy going atmosphere and homely meal selection for all the family. Left overs for lunch today…Popped in this morning for a quick coffee and bit to eat on the way to work, great to see a local Albany Creek business succeed at being a Bar, Restaurant and Cafe.”

Design for Albany Creek Road Upgrades Underway

As part of the Safer Roads Sooner program, Albany Creek Road is getting much-needed road upgrades.

The design is now underway for the upgrades at the Albany Creek Road  (also known as South Pine Road) intersection with Wruck Crescent and Ferguson Street.

According to Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey, the safety improvements at the intersection will get an allocation of $595,000 under the Queensland Government’s Safer Roads Sooner (SRS) initiative.

Safer Roads Sooner is one of the government’s strongest road safety improvement programs. These initiatives focuses on high-benefit, cost-effective treatments at known and potential crash locations.

Albany Creek Road is a popular route for commuters between the north-western suburbs and Brisbane’s CBD. Because of this, the road is also an accident-prone area.

“The history here shows a trend of crashes involving vehicles turning right into Wruck Crescent or Ferguson Street,”  Mr Bailey said.

“That’s why we have allocated funding to modify the traffic signals to fully control right-turn movements from Albany Creek Road into Ferguson Street and Wruck Crescent,” he added.

Safety upgrades will also include the extension of both right-turn lanes on Albany Creek Road. This is to further accommodate motorists waiting at the signals.

These improvements will help minimise the potential for crashes and greatly improve safety at the intersection.

Moreover, the Department of Transport and Main Roads will work with key stakeholders in the area as the design progresses.

TMR anticipates works to start in mid-2019.

Albany Creek Intersection Among Most Dangerous in the Region

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
