Project info

Transport and Main Roads has completed design work to increase traffic capacity and relieve congestion on Deception Bay Road from Anzac Avenue intersection to north of Morris Road intersection, Rothwell.

The $6 million upgrade will widen Deception Bay Road, providing an additional northbound and southbound lane through this section.

The extra lanes on Deception Bay Road will increase capacity and efficiency of this busy network as well as reduce congestion at Morris Road and Anzac Avenue intersections. 

Once the upgrade is completed, a third lane through Anzac Avenue intersection will provide a continuation of 3 lanes on Deception Bay Road from Anzac Avenue, merging back to 2 lanes in each direction north of the Morris Road intersection.

To accommodate the additional through lanes, approximately 600 metres of parking will be removed from the western side of Deception Bay Road between the Woolworths Service Station and Starkey Used Cars. Off-street parking is available for customers accessing businesses at this location.

Dedicated on-road cycle lanes will also be provided on Deception Bay Road between Anzac Avenue and Morris Road intersections. More people cycling more often to work, school, recreation and shopping helps to manage increasing demands on our transport infrastructure. It reduces congestion and air pollution and improves people’s health and well-being.

Pedestrians also benefit with dedicated pedestrian facilities to be provided on both sides of the road.

Design work was completed in mid-2019 with construction anticipated to begin by late 2019.
