Design work is underway on $5.75 million worth of upgrades and improvements to Anzac Avenue in Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.
Yvette D’Ath MP, State Member for Redcliffe and Chris Whiting MP, State Member for Murrumba have welcomed the news of the upgrade which will see dedicated cycle lanes added to this section of Anzac Avenue.
“The works will include the asphalt resurfacing of all six lanes of Anzac Ave between Gynther Rd and Klinger Rd,” said Ms D’Ath
“Design work on this project is currently underway. Consultation with stakeholders will commence once these plans are finalised.” Ms D’Ath said.
“I welcome the addition of almost 3km of cycle lanes to the network in the Moreton Bay region. These new lanes, and the Shared Pathway on the Moreton Bay Rail Link will provide choice for local and visiting cyclists,” Mr Whiting said
“As a cyclist myself I am pleased to see these much anticipated lanes added to Anzac Avenue, providing another active transport option for people across the region to get out and active.”
“This is the first upgrade of the road surface on Anzac Ave in almost a decade, and is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to improving Queensland’s infrastructure.” Mr Whiting said.
Ms D’Ath and Mr Whiting said that they look forward to the upgrade works commencing in early 2017.
