About the project

Algester Road near the intersection of Beaudesert Road in Calamvale has been identified as an area that would benefit from works to revitalise and upgrade the existing streetscape. Stage 3 of Algester Road Median upgrade project will improve the centre median strip near the intersection of Algester Road and Dellforest Drive, by improving the visual amenity of the area and creating an entry node to the area.

This project is part of the Lord Mayor’s Greener Suburbs program. Council's Greener Suburbs program aims to improve the clean, green feel of locations across Brisbane through increased tree planting and installing subtropical boulevards along our arterial roads to enhance the liveability of our neighbourhoods. Shady and attractive streets are an important part of the unique character of Brisbane’s suburbs and our outdoor, subtropical lifestyle.

The works will result in the revitalisation and beautification of the area by undertaking feature plantings and minor works to the centre median. Council will be planting predominantly native plants to enhance a subtropical theme, and will undertake selective pruning, transplanting and removal of existing vegetation. All work will be completed in line with relevant environmental guidelines and in consultation with a qualified arborist.

Timing

The majority of works will be undertaken at night when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of motorists and workers, and to minimise traffic disruptions. Construction activities will generally be carried out between 7pm and 5am, Monday to Saturday, however, some day works will also be required, and will occur Monday to Friday, between the hours of 7am and 5pm.

Due to workplace health and safety requirements reversing beepers cannot be turned off. Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work.

For the safety of workers onsite, partial lane closures may be required to complete the works. Council urges motorists to take care when passing the works and to follow the directions of traffic controllers during these works.
