The Palaszczuk Government is boosting road safety in safety Deception Bay through a road safety project at the Lipscombe, Park and Deception Bay Roads intersection.
Member for Murrumba, Chris Whiting said community safety was the main driver behind the $1.2 million project.
“We are committed to building and maintaining safer roads and improvements at this intersection will deliver real benefits for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists,” Mr Whiting said.
“Works will include extending the westbound right-turn lane on Deception Bay Road for motorists turning right into Lipscombe Road, road widening, and modifying traffic signals.
“When it’s finished, the community will have access to a significantly safer intersection with reduced crash risk and improved traffic flow.
“This project is funded under the Queensland Government’s Safer Roads Sooner Program, which aims to improve road safety and focuses on implementing high-benefit, cost-effective solutions to prevent crashes and incidents on Queensland roads.”
Chris Whiting said works were scheduled between Monday and Saturday, from 6am to 5pm, with occasional night work as required. Construction is expected to take up to three months to complete, weather and conditions permitting.
“Changed traffic conditions including traffic control devices, lane closures and speed reductions will apply during the works,” he said.
“I would like to thank residents and motorists for their patience while these important works to improve safety on the state-controlled road network are undertaken.”
