Hollywell Road safety improvements

Project description

The City of Gold Coast is currently investigating road safety improvements along the southern section of Hollywell Road, Biggera Waters, between Brisbane Road and the Biggera Creek bridge.

These improvements are due to:

  • a relatively high number of intersection crashes
  • a lack of pedestrian connectivity and facilities with minimal DDA compliance
  • a lack of on-road bicycle lanes for the active transport network
  • concerns for the safety of right-turn traffic movements.

Benefits for the local community

The project will focus on intersection and road related safety improvements for Hollywell Road with only minor impacts to traffic movements and congestion. These improvements include:

  • improving safety by reconfiguring the corridor to two through lanes and providing right turn pockets
  • improving active travel safety by installing on-road bicycle lanes
  • encouraging active travel by upgrading the surrounding path network and connectivity
  • increasing the right-turn capacity onto Brisbane Road.

Community engagement

The community engagement phase for the Hollywell Road safety improvements project has now closed. Thank you to everyone that took the time to provide feedback at our information sessions.

The feedback and comments received from the community helped to inform our final selection for the project.
