Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street black spot project - Spring Hill
Brisbane City Council is undertaking works at the Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street intersection in Spring Hill to improve safety for all road users as part of the 2019-20 Australian Government Black Spot Program.
|Address||Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street, Spring Hill|
|Project outcomes||Improved safety|
Construction started in late September 2019
About the project
The Black Spot Program is part of the Australian Government's commitment to reduce crashes on Australian roads. The program aims to reduce crashes and improve road safety by implementing upgrade measures such as roundabouts and traffic signals appropriate to each black spot location.
The intersection has experienced a relatively high crash rate, with 12 crashes occurring between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2018. The majority of these accidents resulted from right-turn movements from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street.
The upgrade at the intersection at Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street will improve safety for all road users by controlling the right-turn movements from Gregory Terrace to Boundary Street at both approaches.
The project involves:
- converting existing filtered right turns to fully controlled right turns at both approaches from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street
- extending the right-turn lane from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street (Brisbane Grammar School) by removing the existing median
- upgrading pedestrian kerb ramps across Boundary Street on the eastern side of the intersection
- providing additional cycle lane line marking on Gregory Terrace.
Impacts during construction
The majority of works will take place at night between 7pm-5am, Sunday-Thursday, when traffic volumes are lowest. This is to ensure the safety of motorists and workers, and to minimise traffic disruptions. Some works will also need to be undertaken between 7pm-5pm on Fridays throughout the project.
Where possible, noisier works (such as saw cutting of the road) will occur during the day or prior to 11pm. Residents may still experience increased lighting and some noise after 11pm from plant and machinery operating throughout the night and morning.
Temporary traffic changes and lane closures will be required to allow work to be completed and motorists should expect delays when travelling through the area. Look for warning signage and follow the direction of traffic controllers. Council apologises in advance for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding while we undertake these important works.
Construction started in late September 2019 and is expected to be completed by late 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Council is committed to minimising the impacts of works on the community as much as possible.
