The Department of Transport and Main Roads is upgrading the Goodwood Road and Alloway State School intersection to provide dedicated right and left turn-lanes.
The Queensland Government has allocated $275,000 under the School Transport Infrastructure Program, as part of the Targeted Road Safety Program, to undertake the project.
The STIP provides funding to improve safety for schools through new or improved infrastructure at the school and/or on the surrounding road network.
STIP complements other ongoing initiatives to improve safety in and around Queensland schools including the Flashing School Zone Signs Program, the School Crossing Supervisor Scheme and the Community Road Safety Grants Program.
The Department has scheduled the works to be undertaken during the June / July 2021 school holiday period, to minimise the disruption to school traffic.
RoadTek will deliver the works, which will be carried out between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Motorists are reminded to observe all warning signage when approaching the site and be aware of changed conditions, such as reduced speed limits and queued traffi c, and adapt their driving behaviour accordingly.
Nearby residents may experience some noise and dust impacts during construction.
The department thanks adjacent residents and motorists for their patience and cooperation while these important safety upgrades are completed.
It is anticipated the project will take two weeks to complete, weather permitting.
