Beaudesert to Beenleigh corridor safety improvements

The department has delivered safety improvements on sections of the Beaudesert to Beenleigh corridor.

Beaudesert–Beenleigh Road

Targeted road safety improvements including improved line marking/signage, audio tactile line marking, removing roadside hazards, localised road widening and safety barriers have been undertaken at various locations between Beaudesert and Beenleigh.

The culverts below the road north of the Schmidt Road intersection at Cedar Creek have been replaced to provide a safer curve alignment and road shoulder widening.
