Safer intersections for the Bundaberg Region

intersection upgrades
The intersection upgrades will improve road safety and reduce the potential for vehicle crashes in high-speed environments.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will commence construction on three rural intersections in the Bundaberg Region from this month.

The intersection upgrades will improve road safety and reduce the potential for vehicle crashes in high-speed environments.

The works will also improve access to side roads on what are important transport links to the freight and farming industries and rural residents in the Wide Bay Burnett district.

The improvements are jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Road Safety Program (RSP).

The upgrades include:

Bundaberg Region

  • Widening and re-sealing the Goodwood Road, Coach Road and Muller Road intersection
  • Installing right and left turn lanes into Coach Road, and a right turn lane into Muller Road
  • Widening and re-sealing Bundaberg-Gin Gin Road and Kookaburra Park Drive intersection
  • Installing right and left turn lanes into Kookaburra Park Drive.

The Australian Government has invested $255.7 million in the program across 2023-25, with the Queensland Government also providing $255.7 million, sourced through the Camera Detected Offences Program, bringing the total investment to $511.4 million.

Transport and Main Roads Regional Director (Southern Queensland) Bill Lansbury said that these intersection upgrades are amongst 71 projects that will be delivered across Queensland under the Road Safety Program.

“The works are all about maintaining the safety of motorists on the state’s road network and will support an average of 700 jobs, at a time when jobs and jobs security are more important than ever,” he said.

“Widening and adding dedicated turn lanes to the intersections will improve safety on vital transport links in the Wide Bay Burnett district.

“Works are expected to get underway in May 2024, weather and other conditions permitting.

“We thank motorists for their patience during the upgrades.”
