Commencing: November 2019
Completion: February 2020
Cost: $970,000

Project information

We’re upgrading the Ashmore Road and Glenmore Drive/Freda Street roundabout in Ashmore.

The intersection was identified as having a higher than average crash rate. A road safety audit identified opportunities to reduce conflict points.

Construction details

The safety upgrade includes:

  • adding in traffic calming features (such as horizontal deflections) to encourage cars to slow down
  • removing on-road bike lanes to encourage cyclists to transition off-road while crossing through the intersection
  • widening the existing footpath We’re also upgrading the road to improve its condition
  • adding cut-throughs to traffic islands to encourage pedestrians walking through intersection.

The project will reduce the likelihood of traffic incidents and improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Most of the works will occur during standard business hours, and outside of peak periods to minimise disruptions (where possible). Temporary lane closures will be required and we’ll have pedestrian and traffic management in place. Road and path access will be maintained during the day.

To allow us to complete the works safely, and to minimise the impact on road users, we will need to do some night works when traffic volumes are lower. Night road closures will also be required, detours will be in place to provide alternate access.

During construction there will be temporary traffic delays, noise and dust at times. We encourage all road users to take extra care when workers are in the area and observe traffic signs and speed restrictions. We will do our best to minimise disruptions, and we thank you in advance for your patience.

Benefits to the community

  • Road safety improvements through encouragement of speed reduction and improvements to line of sight
  • enhanced off-road facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
