Project info

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has undertaken safety improvement works at the Beerburrum Road and Pumicestone Road intersection, Caboolture.

The project aim was to deliver a safer and easier intersection for motorists to navigate. 

As part of the project, TMR delivered the following safety improvements:

  • widening Beerburrum Road to deliver dual right-turn lanes into Pumicestone Road
  • widening Pumicestone Road to allow for the dual turning movement by adding another lane
  • relocating the existing northbound Pumicestone Road railway pedestrian crossing
  • realigning and rehabilitating affected pavements and footpaths
  • reshaping and relocating traffic islands
  • modifying existing signal phasing to allow for full-time control of right-turn movements.

This project formed part of the Queensland Government’s Targeted Road Safety Program (TRSP), which aims to improve road safety and focuses on implementing high-benefit, cost-effective solutions to prevent crashes and incidents on Queensland roads.
