Project info

Bundall Road, Ashmore Road and Salerno Street intersection

The department has designed an innovative solution to address traffic congestion and provide an additional access to Surfers Paradise from the south.

This solution, known as a Continuous Flow Intersection or CFI, will be constructed at the intersection of Bundall Road, Ashmore Road and Salerno Street, allowing vehicles to travel more efficiently through the intersection.

Traditional intersections have right-turning vehicles in the middle of the road, through traffic coming in the opposite direction must wait for these vehicles to turn.

A CFI removes right-turning traffic from the intersection by placing the right-turn lanes to the far right outside edge of the road, increasing the number of vehicles that can travel through the intersection.

Continuous Flow Intersection

Turning right is as easy as 1-2-3

  1. Start by lining up in one of the two right-turn lanes at the Boomerang Crescent intersection when travelling north-bound.
  2. When the right-turn signal turns green, drive across the oncoming traffic lanes (they will be stopped on a red signal) into a newly created lane on the far right side of the road.
  3. You will then be stopped at another signal at the end of the right-hand turn lanes at the Salerno Street entry. Wait for the traffic signal to turn green and proceed to make your right-turn into Salerno Street.
