Water and waste smiling man

Commencing: January 2018
Completion: March 2018
Cost: $1 million

Project information

Funding has been awarded from the Australian Government's Black Spot Programme to improve road safety at the intersection of Kitchener Street, Monash Street and Malparara Street, Tugun.

A new roundabout will replace the existing priority controlled intersection.

Construction details

The first stage of works involves the replacement of the water main in Kitchener Street in mid-January 2018. There may be some minor disruptions to water services and residents will be provided with further details by Gold Coast Water and Waste prior to works commencing.

The second stage involves the construction of the new roundabout, road pavement, drainage, kerb and channel and a street lighting upgrade.

The intersection will be partially closed to traffic during construction. Temporary traffic signals will be in place on Kitchener Street to maintain two-way traffic. Malparara Street and Monash Street will be closed at Kitchener Street and traffic will be temporarily detoured through Morshead Street and Coolara Street.

To meet road safety standards several kerbside parking spaces need to be removed at the intersection. The parking on these streets will remain unrestricted.

Detour signs will be installed and traffic management will be in place. Bus routes 767 and 768 will be temporarily detoured. Please check TRANSLink for details on 13 12 30.

Benefits to the community

  • slowing down traffic approaching the intersection,
  • improved street lighting,
  • improved footpaths and road crossings for pedestrians; and,
  • improved line of sight for vehicles approaching the intersection.

We will be working to minimise disruptions. However, local residents may notice construction noise and dust.

Thank you for your patience.
