Commencing: October 2018
Completion: June 2020
Cost: $10.2 million

Project information

We are delivering a multi-million dollar upgrade of Old Coach Road in Reedy Creek, between the Kingsmore Boulevard roundabout (near the M1 Pacific Motorway Exit 85 off-ramp) and Tallebudgera Creek Road.

The project will improve safety for all road users by modifying the road alignment, separating pedestrians and cyclists from general traffic, and removing roadside hazards.

The project contributes to objectives in our Transport Strategy 2031 and Road Safety Plan.

Construction details

  • realignment and widening of Old Coach Road between the Kingsmore Boulevard roundabout and the former Reedy Creek motocross track
  • new on-road cycle lanes between the Kingsmore Boulevard roundabout and the former Reedy Creek motocross track
  • a new off-road cycle and pedestrian path (southern side) between the Kingsmore Boulevard roundabout and the former Reedy Creek motocross track
  • pavement replacement
  • new and upgraded stormwater drainage
  • new street lighting and landscaping.

We are working to minimise disruptions, however lane closures will be required and traffic delays may be experienced at times. Trucks and earthmoving machinery will be working in the area and local residents may notice construction noise and dust. Thank you for your patience.

Benefits to the community

  • improving the road alignment by removing reverse curves and a concealed driveway
  • reducing the risk of run-off road crashes by removing roadside hazards and widening the shoulders and verges
  • providing new separated cycle lanes
  • providing new off-road cycle and pedestrian shared path that will eventually be extended all the way to Bermuda Street and Tallebudgera Creek Road
  • new street lighting
  • lowering the speed limit from 70 kilometres per hour to 60 kilometres per hour.

Project update (November 2019)

The Old Coach Road upgrade has reached the half way point and is on track for full completion by June 2020. To assist public during the busy holiday period, the works will be stopping for six weeks from the end of November 2019 through to 6 January 2020. During this time, the road will be returned to full operations with two lanes open.

When construction recommences on 6 January 2020, the road will return to single lane operations. Traffic controllers will be on site during working hours and temporary traffic signals during outside working hours.

Thank you to the community for your ongoing patience while we complete this important road upgrade.

Future stages

Future stages of the Old Coach Road upgrade are in the early conceptual stage.

Once the preferred solution is endorsed by Council and funded, we will communicate details with the community.
