Project info

A $1.4 million project to install traffic signals at the Oxley Avenue and Irene Street intersection, Redcliffe, aims to reduce collisions as well as improve pedestrian safety. 

Crashes in this area are predominantly caused by drivers misjudging the gap to turn out of Irene Street into traffic on Oxley Avenue.

With 11,000 vehicle movements per day, Oxley Avenue is a busy road that services local residential and commercial areas. This intersection is close to education, sporting and cultural venues.

Design for the upgrade is complete and construction started in March 2020.
