Caboolture-Bribie Island Road and Old Toorbul Point Road intersection upgrade

We are undertaking an intersection upgrade to install traffic signals and dedicated turn lanes for all movements as part of the Caboolture-Bribie Island Road upgrade project. The intersection project will include a signalised pedestrian crossing of Caboolture-Bribie Island Road, bus stops and on-road bike lanes.

This upgrade will cater to growing traffic volumes by increasing capacity at the intersection and making it safer for motorists to navigate through. The traffic signal installation will also significantly reduce delays for motorists using the intersection, while accommodating future capacity requirements for Caboolture-Bribie Island Road.

We are upgrading the Caboolture-Bribie Island Road and Old Toorbul Point Road intersection which is currently a major, give-way controlled T-intersection that experiences high traffic volumes. The intersection is located near the Abbey Museum and St Michaels College, and motorists currently experience delays using the intersection, particularly during events held at the museum and at school drop-off and collection periods. 

The upgrade will include: 

  • installation of traffic signals 
  • construction of additional lanes on the Caboolture-Bribie approaches (two lanes for each intersection approach in addition to left and right-turn lanes) 
  • a signalised pedestrian crossing of Caboolture-Bribie Island Road 
  • on-road bike lanes 
  • bus stops on both sides of Caboolture-Bribie Island Road.
