Victoria Avenue Mall - Broadbeach signalised pedestrian crossing upgrade

Victoria Avenue Mall, Broadbeach signalised pedestrian crossing upgrade

The pedestrian crossing at Victoria Avenue and Old Burleigh Road, Broadbeach has been upgraded to improve safety and efficiency for pedestrians and motorists.

The pedestrian crossing has been upgraded to improve capacity for pedestrian movements. These works will contribute to the safer movement of people within Broadbeach during numerous major events that the precinct hosts, including the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Additional works to resurface Old Burleigh Road from Elizabeth Avenue to Queensland Avenue were also completed.

The upgrades will:

  • improve safety by encouraging a pedestrian-friendly environment
  • provide a more legible crossing layout
  • reinforce the connection between the Victoria Avenue Mall and the beach.

The project included:

  • an increased crossing width
  • realignments to the intersection
  • upgrades to signal posts, pedestrian push buttons, medians, line marking and signage
  • increased pedestrian queuing space
  • new landscaping and lighting
  • a newly resurfaced road.

Commenced: May 2017
Completed: September 2017
Pedestrian upgrade cost: $620,000
Road resurfacing cost: $500,000
