Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is upgrading the intersection of Brighton-Redcliffe Road (Oxley Avenue) and Irene Street in Redcliffe.

Location:

The corner of Brighton-Redcliffe Road (Oxley Avenue) and Irene Street Redcliffe.

Completion:

Community consultation for design began in late-2018. Detailed design is scheduled to be finalised in mid-2019 with construction anticipated to begin by early 2020, weather and site conditions permitting.

Benefits:

 The upgrade will:

  • install traffic signals to enhance safety and reduce the risk of crashes
  • provide signalised pedestrian crossings on both roads
  • extend the right turn lane from Oxley Avenue into Irene Street to cater for stored vehicles.

Funding:

The Queensland Government has allocated $1.155 million under the Targeted Road Safety Program, which aims to improve road safety and focuses on implementing high-benefit, cost-effective solutions to prevent crashes and incidents on Queensland roads.

Regions:
North Coast Region, Wide Bay Burnett Region

Project info

A $1.155 million project to install traffic signals at the intersection Oxley Avenue and Irene Street, 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.

TMR will consult with key stakeholders and community members during the design and construction of this important road safety project.
