About the project

Council identified the Chatsworth Road, Boundary Road and Samuel Street intersection in Coorparoo as a location that required an upgrade to improve safety and reduce congestion.

This project was part of Council’s $1.3 billion commitment to more than 90 road improvement projects to take real action on safety and congestion, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting residents home quicker and safer.

The intersection carries approximately 31,000 vehicles per day and has a high crash rate with 33 recorded accidents between August 2008 and July 2018. The majority of the crashes involved motorists turning right from Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street colliding with oncoming traffic.

The project was undertaken to improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and improve safety for all users of the intersection.

The project involved:

  • providing a dedicated right-turn lane on Chatsworth Road into Boundary Road
  • installing a fully controlled right-turn with arrows on both Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street
  • widening Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street to allow for an additional through lane in the westbound direction
  • changing signal operations to reduce the potential conflict between vehicles and pedestrians with the removal of the left slip lane from Samuel Street to Boundary Road.

The Chatsworth Road, Boundary Road and Samuel Street intersection upgrade project was jointly funded by the Australian Government and Council as part of the Australian Government's Roads to Recovery (R2R) program.
