The Honourable Mark Bailey
Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports and Minister for Energy, Biofuels and Water Supply
The Palaszczuk Government has committed $420,000 to start detailed design work and investigate improvements at the intersection of Old Cleveland Road and the Gateway Motorway.
Main Roads and Road Safety Minister Mark Bailey recently visited the site with Member for Capalaba Don Brown to understand first-hand the issue of traffic queuing which frequently occurs at the on-ramp to the Gateway Motorway.
“I am pleased to confirm that design is underway, meaning we are one step closer to finding a workable solution to this challenging traffic congestion issue,” said Mr Bailey.
Mr Brown said the successful design tenderer, Lambert and Rehbein had immediately commenced design work to improve traffic flow at the intersection of Old Cleveland Road and the Gateway Motorway.
“This is great news for drivers who frequently use Old Cleveland Road, including those travelling to and from my electorate of Capalaba and further on in the Redlands,” he said.
“In recent years, park’n’ride facilities have been added outside Carindale Shopping centre and the Sleeman Aquatic Centre, and improved facilities at Capalaba to promote the use of active transport and reduce congestion.
“But this announcement will go one step further to reducing traffic congestion in the future.
“A business case will be undertaken to look at improved traffic flows, public transport links, freight connectivity, and access for the local community.”
“This is a special pre-construction program that focuses on projects with a high likelihood of progressing to construction.”
