About the project

The upgrade was jointly funded by Brisbane City Council and Logan City Council to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety and access for all road users travelling through the area.

The project involved widening Johnson and Stapylton Roads, and upgrading the intersection to install:

  • two through-lanes on Johnson Road on both approaches to the intersection
  • traffic signals and centre medians at the intersection
  • two dedicated right-turn lanes from Johnson Road east to Stapylton Road north
  • two dedicated left-turn lanes from Stapylton Road north to Johnson Road east with a combined through and right-turn lane into Johnson Road west
  • a left-turn slip lane from Johnson Road west into Stapylton Road north and maintaining the right-turn pocket into Stapylton Road south
  • signalised pedestrian crossings on both Stapylton Road approaches and the western Johnson Road approach
  • a pedestrian footpath on the south-eastern side of the intersection along Johnson Road
  • two metre-wide, on-road cycle lanes on the Johnson Road approaches and the northern Stapylton Road approach with the cycle lanes ranging in length from 120 metres to 320 metres
  • fauna fencing and a fauna crossing in the new drainage culvert under Johnson Road.

The Stapylton Road and Johnson Road intersection upgrade project was part of Council's $1.3 billion commitment to more than 90 road improvement projects to take real action on congestion, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting residents home quicker and safer.
