Commencing: November 2020
Completion: December 2020 (weather permitting)
Cost: $530,000

Project information

We are upgrading the Binstead Way and Pacific Pines Boulevard roundabout in Pacific Pines. Approximately 32,000 vehicles use the intersection every day and these works aim to reduce congestion on the western approach during the morning peak period.

These works form part of the City of Gold Coast's commitment to improving our road network across the Gold Coast.

Project details

The upgrade includes the installation of:

  • red and amber traffic lights on the southern approach (Pacific Pines Boulevard), operational based on traffic volume
  • congestion detectors on the western and southern approaches to assess when traffic lights are required
  • CCTV, traffic signal controller and Bluetooth reader infrastructure for monitoring road safety and managing traffic flow.

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 will have pedestrian and traffic management in place. Road and path access will be maintained at all times.

During construction there may 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

The benefits to the community include:

  • reduced congestion at the intersection, specifically for traffic on the western approach
  • introduction of traffic detectors and signals that will adjust to changing traffic volume
  • improved traffic safety at the intersection.
