Surf Parade and Margaret Avenue intersection and shared path upgrade

Project description

Surf Parade and Margaret Avenue intersection - cyclist

The City of Gold Coast is constructing new traffic signals to replace the roundabout at the intersection of Surf Parade and Margaret Avenue, Broadbeach. Access ramps, pedestrian refuges and a new, wide pathway will be constructed along the western side of Surf Parade, between Elizabeth Avenue and Margaret Avenue. A new, wide path will be constructed along the northern side of Margaret Avenue between Surf Parade and Old Burleigh Road.

The project aims to improve traffic flow during the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 and forms part of the City’s 2016-17 budget commitment of $10 million to extend our active transport network and create a better connected Gold Coast.

Construction details

  • Replacement of the roundabout with traffic signals.
  • Construction will include new road pavement, signalised crossings for pedestrians and cyclists and wider pathways along Surf Parade and Margaret Avenue.
  • Some delays to motorists are likely during construction.
  • During construction, there will be short term impacts with additional noise and traffic congestion.
  • The project will result in some changes to on-street parking in Surf Parade and Margaret Avenue to provide space for the intersection lanes and path access ramps.

Completion: December 2017
