Work to Goodwood Road, Alloway, is now underway and once complete, will increase safety for drivers in the area.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has commenced the work to upgrade three intersections along the busy stretch of road.
“Roadside clearing and culvert works were completed in early February 2021, in preparation for shoulder widening at the Leonardis and Fieldings Road intersections and the installation of a dedicated right turn lane at the New Farm Road intersection,” a TMR spokesperson said.
“RoadTek are delivering the works which will be undertaken from 6am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
“Works are expected to be complete by the end of April 2021, weather permitting.”
The TMR spokesperson said motorists could expect some delays if travelling during work hours and were reminded to observe all warning and traffic signage when approaching the works sites and be aware of changed conditions.
“The department wishes to thank the local community for its patience and support while these important safety upgrades are undertaken,” the spokesperson said.
The Australian Government has allocated $1.16 million under its Road Safety Program, with the Queensland Government contributing $254,000 to complete the works on Goodwood Road.
In January 2021, the Australian Government approved up to $226.7 million, and the Queensland Government a further $66 million in additional funding under the Road Safety Program to accelerate state-wide upgrades, improving safety and supporting around 1000 jobs in Queensland.
