Project info

The $16 million federally-funded project delivered a number of road safety treatments along the D’Aguilar Highway between Caboolture and Kilcoy. Key works delivered include:

  • safety improvements at the two Gamgee Road intersections with the D’Aguilar Highway including construction of dedicated turning lanes and lighting at the Gamgee Road east intersection 
  • rehabilitation and drainage improvements of a 2.1km section of highway between the Gamgee Road intersections 
  • construction of a 1.2km overtaking lane (eastbound) between the Gamgee Road intersections, with a 1m wide painted centre median treatment along the length of the overtaking lane to separate opposing traffic lanes 
  • clearing of vegetation at selected locations including Bye Road, Warraba Creek, J Lindsay Road and Morley Lane to improve visibility and safety in the roadside environment 
  • resealing of the road surface between Neurum Road and Canando Street and additional signage at the Canando Street intersection.

On 3 October 2016, The Hon Darren Chester MP, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport announced that the next phase of the $16 million road safety improvement project will involve construction of a new eastbound overtaking lane on the D’Aguilar highway between Chambers Road and Petersen Road, Woodford.

Construction works will involve: 

  • upgrading the Ironbark Drive intersection
  • upgrading the Chambers Road intersection
  • installing a 3m shoulder for eastbound traffic between Ironbark Drive and Chambers Road intersections to provide a safe run-out area for merging vehicles
  • installing a 1m wide centre line between the 2 intersections.

Design is now complete for the overtaking lane project in Woodford, and construction works are anticipated to start by mid-2017.
