Hornibrook Esplanade pedestrian crossing

Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is improving pedestrian safety by providing a signalised pedestrian crossing on Brighton-Redcliffe Road (Hornibrook Esplanade) in Clontarf.

Location:

Adjacent to 80 Hornibrook Esplanade Clontarf, to assist pedestrians crossing to and from the Bramble Bay foreshore to food services, retailers and accommodation.

Completion:

Community engagement and design began in mid-2017. Design was completed in October 2018. Construction is underway and is schedule to be completed by April 2019, weather permitting. 

Benefits:

The upgrade will:

  • install a signalised pedestrian crossing
  • install raised concrete islands
  • install associated street lighting
  • improve connectivity for pedestrians visiting local activities and businesses
  • improve safety for all road users.

Funding:

The Queensland Government has allocated $690,000 under the Targeted Road Safety Program, which aims to improve safety at both potential and known crash locations along the state-controlled network, to install the signalised pedestrian crossing.

Regions:
North Coast Region

Project info

The Queensland Government has allocated $690,000 in funding for this project under the Queensland Government’s Targeted Road Safety Program, which aims to improve safety at both potential and known crash locations along the state-controlled network.

TMR investigated the need for a designated crossing in this area following community and business concerns about pedestrians crossing between Bramble Bay foreshore and food services and other retailers on Hornibrook Esplanade. With no other crossing facilities nearby, pedestrians are potentially at risk when attempting to cross 4 lanes of traffic.

A proposed design was issued for community feedback in August 2017. Following this, TMR conducted further investigations and refined the design. The design provides a controlled, safe road crossing for all types of pedestrians. Construction is underway and is scheduled to be completed by April 2019, weather permitting. 

The works will be take place between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. Increased noise and vibration may be experienced while works are underway. Changed traffic conditions will be in place during works, including reduced speed limits, lane and shoulder closures, and short-term traffic disruptions. Two-way flow of traffic will be maintained. Traffic controllers will be in place to assist and direct road users when required. Priority access and entry through the work zone will be given to emergency vehicles. Footpath access will be maintained on both sides of Hornibrook Esplanade.
