About the project

Council is upgrading the intersection to improve traffic flow, increase safety for all road users, and help cater for future traffic demands along this busy road.

Council investigations showed that traffic flow and safety would improve with the addition of extra lanes for vehicles turning into and out of Raymont Road. The project will widen Grange Road to provide new dedicated left-turn and right-turn lanes. 

This project is a continuation of the outcomes detailed in the Wilston Grange Transport Study. The study recommended safety and congestion improvements at the intersection.

The upgrade involves:

  • installing a dedicated right turn lane (southbound) and left turn lane (northbound) on Grange Road into Raymont Road
  • widening Grange Road to make allowance for turning lanes
  • upgrading the existing traffic signals on Grange Road and Raymont Road
  • installing a new centre traffic island at the intersection on Grange Road, south of Raymont Road
  • installing new footpath and access ramps
  • line marking and signage
  • minor landscaping.

Project status

The first stage involved relocating property fences to the new boundary line to allow the intersection to be widened. The second stage involved relocating a number of public utility underground and overhead services around the intersection, including services such as gas mains, Energex powerlines and Telstra pits and cables.

Works for the stage three construction phase will start in early September 2019 and should be completed by late 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.

The third stage of the upgrade will involve:

  • installing a dedicated right-turn lane (southbound) and left-turn lane (northbound) on Grange Road into Raymont Road
  • widening Grange Road to make allowance for turning lanes
  • upgrading the existing traffic signals on Grange Road and Raymont Road
  • installing new drainage
  • installing new footpath and access ramps
  • line marking and signage
  • minor landscaping.

Construction impacts

Where possible, works will be undertaken during the day, between 7am-5pm Monday to Saturday. Works that require lane closures will be undertaken from 5am-3pm Monday to Saturday, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Some works may need to be undertaken at night and Council will provide advance notification to advise of night works. If required, noisier works will be undertaken prior to 11pm where possible. However, residents may still experience some noise after 11pm from plant and machinery operating throughout the night/morning.

Extended weekend works and traffic detours

A program of extended weekend works are being periodically implemented over the next few months to:

  • help reduce the overall extent of night works required for the project 
  • reduce the length of the construction program.

Works being carried out over these weekends generally involve significant traffic changes to facilitate the installation of new services within the road, which could otherwise only be carried out at night.

The first of the extended weekend works will start in late September/early October with works being undertaken from 7am-5pm on both Saturday and Sunday and will involve installing new stormwater drainage pits and pipes across the intersection of Raymont Road and Grange Road.

During these weekend works, Raymont Road will be temporarily closed to through traffic. Traffic will be detoured via Wilston Road and Chermside Street. Local access will be maintained.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. For works requiring temporary lane closures, detours will be in place for all road users. Where necessary, traffic controllers will be onsite to assist all road users through the work site. Speed limit restrictions may apply and traffic controllers and signage will be in place to safeguard all road users and road workers.

Throughout construction, residents and businesses near the works may experience construction noise, increased truck movements and low levels of vibration and dust. Council will work to ensure that these are kept within allowable levels and will monitor noise and dust levels, as well as working with the contractor to minimise any impacts.

We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and appreciate your patience during this time.

Environmental impacts

A total of 23 trees were removed to facilitate the widening of Grange Road as part of the project. This work has now been completed and the vegetation impact will be offset by the planting of 64 new trees in the local area, six of which will be planted within the immediate vicinity of the intersection, in accordance with Council's policies and relevant legislative requirements.
