About the project

Council is undertaking survey and investigation works on Beams Road between Gympie Road and east of Handford Road, excluding the open level crossing replacement being undertaken by the Queensland Government, to help inform the design for the corridor upgrade.

The future upgrade will be jointly funded by Council and the Australian Government through the Urban Congestion Fund.

Investigation works

As part of the future Beams Road upgrade, further survey and investigation works will be carried out on Beams Road between Gympie Road and Handford Road from February 2021 and will continue intermittently for approximately three months.

Generally, the survey and investigation works will be undertaken during the day between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, weather and site conditions permitting.

Some night works will also be required to ensure the safety of road users and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions. Where works are required at night, they will be undertaken from Sunday to Thursday, between 7pm and 5am when traffic volumes are lowest.   

Investigation works will include:

  • potholing (vacuum excavation) to identify underground public utility services
  • geotechnical investigations using a small truck mounted drill rig
  • road pavement testing
  • environmental and topographical surveys
  • noise monitoring
  • traffic counts
  • temporary lane closures on Beams Road and Hanford Road, where required.

Notification will be provided to local residents and businesses when timing for these works is confirmed.
