Beaudesert to Beenleigh corridor safety improvements

The department is delivering 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 in advance of road and curve realignment and road and shoulder widening. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2023.

These works are funded from an $18 million commitment from the Australian and Queensland Governments to improve road safety.

Beaudesert–Nerang Road

Road safety improvement works on Beaudesert–Nerang Road on a 3.7km section between Brooklands Drive and Beaudesert–Beenleigh Road, Tabragalba were completed in late 2021.
