Project info

TMR has finalised the design to address safety concerns at the Gympie Arterial Road and Strathpine Road interchange at Bald Hills.

TMR will transform this interchange into a diverging diamond interchange, an innovative intersection design that will reduce congestion, improve travel times and address safety concerns.

A diverging diamond interchange is an innovative interchange design, used with great success internationally, to increase traffic efficiency and safety for all road users.

The benefit of this kind of interchange is that right-turning traffic does not have to give way to opposing traffic making the intersection both safer and more efficient. You can view the fact sheet about the benefits of the diverging diamond for this project here. 

Additionally, a diverging diamond interchange is cost-effective to construct and has less impact on local residents compared to a traditional interchange because it requires a smaller footprint.

The new interchange, while unfamiliar to Australian drivers, will be  easy to navigate and TMR will engage with road users to describe how the interchange will operate.

TMR will keep the local community informed as the project progresses. To register for project updates, contact us by email, phone or post as per below.

The Strathpine Road / Gympie Road diverging diamond interchange will be the second in Queensland, with the Caloundra Road / Bruce Highway (QLD) diverging diamond interchange under construction as of March 2019.

The new interchange, while unfamiliar to Australian drivers, will be very easy to navigate and TMR will engage with the local community and road users to help drivers understand how to navigate the intersection.

TMR will keep the local community informed as the project progresses. To register for project updates, contact us by email, phone or post as per below.
