Council recently completed an upgrade of the intersection at Goodwood Road and Lucketts Road to improve the safety of this busy intersection.

The works included improving the layout of the intersection by adding new right and left turning lanes off Goodwood Road, introducing a staggered T intersection configuration with Station Road and Mamminos Road and improving signage and lighting in the area.

Bundaberg Regional Council Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said the Doolbi intersection, near Childers, was a main route for many who were travelling on to the Bruce Highway.

“More than 1600 vehicles travel along Lucketts Road per day and 3200 vehicles along the state-controlled Goodwood Road all utilise this intersection,” he said.

“It's an important connection for our road users and it is great to see the upgrades completed to assist in keeping the community safe on the roads.”

Sergeant Ben Holdcroft from Childers Police said the upgraded intersection had been welcomed by the community.

“Anything Council does to assist us in improving road safety is always welcomed,” Sgt Holdcroft said.

“Improved infrastructure assists with the reduction of traffic crashes, so we look forward to seeing increased safety at this particular intersection.”

The work was undertaken by local contractor SGQ.

The project is partly funded by the Federal Government's Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program with cooperation from the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

  1. How confusing is this layout??? It’s great that there are turning lanes but there is little time to react as to which way you need to go as soon as you turn off
