Yawalpah Road/Gawthern Drive, Pimpama – intersection signalisation

Commenced: September 2020
Completed: January 2021
Cost: $2.7 million

Project information

To support the opening of the new Gainsborough State School, we ugraded the Yawalpah Road/Gawthern Drive intersection. This will improve network efficiency and road safety, and encourage active travel.

Design features of the new intersection include:

  • new traffic lights
  • pedestrian crossings
  • new bus bays on both sides of Yawalpah Road
  • new paths that connect to the existing
  • fencing on the median and verge to ensure pedestrians (including school children) only cross at the signalised pedestrian crossing.

The design of the intersection upgrade has been future proofed to ensure that it can cater for the proposed Yawalpah Road upgrade.

This project aligns with the Gold Coast City Transport Strategy 2031.

The Yawalpah Road/Gawthern Drive intersection signalisation is a joint initiative of the City of Gold Coast and the Queensland Government.

Larger Yawalpah Road project

Planning and design are also well underway to increase network capacity on Yawalpah Road to improve connectivity between the M1 and Kerkin Road. With the State Government announcing their commitment to build the Coomera Connector in stages over a number of years, we’re currently reviewing these to ensure that the upgrade can meet short, mid and long term needs. We’ve also listened to your feedback and are including the duplication of the bridge in our planning.
