Project info

In 2012, The Department of Transport and Main Roads completed the preferred concept plan for the Stafford Road and South Pine Road intersection planning study.

This project will be delivered in 2 stages, the first being the Everton Park Link Road, from Stafford Road to South Pine Road.

The second stage, upgrading and modifying intersections at and adjacent to the existing Stafford Road and South Pine Road intersection, is currently unfunded.

Benefits of the preferred concept plan

  • The new link road between Stafford Road and South Pine Road will provide motorists with a direct route, reducing traffic congestion at the Stafford South Pine intersection.
  • Access will facilitated to the North-West Homemaker Centre from the Everton Park link road.
  • Removing the right turns from South Pine Road into Stafford Road and South Pine Road into Griffith Street during peak hours will allow drivers more traffic light ‘green time,’ which will improve travel time.
  • The majority of Stage 1 (apart from the actual intersection) can be constructed away from operating roads, therefore minimising traffic and local amenity impacts during construction. 
  • Cyclists will enjoy new dedicated on and off-road bicycle lanes along the Everton Park link road. 
  • Cycle connectivity will improve with on-road bikeways linking to off-road shared pathways and the Kedron Brook cycleway. 
  • Pedestrians will benefit from increased accessibility around shopping precincts with wider footpaths and additional crossings at the link road intersection.

The department recognises the significance of Kedron Brook Creek and local flora and fauna. The ‘green space’ - as it is known locally - at the Everton Park link road is a preserved transport corridor. TMR will investigate improving the green amenity around the link road as part of final design, with landscaping and tree planting in the road verges and adjacent road land.
