About the project

Brisbane City Council has identified a need to upgrade the left-turn slip lane on Harries Road at the intersection with Old Cleveland Road to improve safety for all road users, slow vehicles down and enhance driver awareness. 

Since 2016 two crashes involving pedestrians were recorded at the left-turn slip lane. 

This project is jointly funded by the Australian Government through the Roads to Recovery Program and Brisbane City Council.

Project benefits

  • Improve safety for all road users.
  • Enhance connectivity for people walking and riding. 
  • Improve driver awareness and reduce vehicle speeds. 

Project details

Below is a summary of the works being undertaken as part of the project.

Project timing

  • Project introduction – March 2024
  • Start of construction – mid-April 2024
  • End of construction –  June 2024

Construction impacts

Construction is scheduled to commence mid-April 2024 and will be completed by June 2024, weather and site conditions permitting. The majority of works will occur at night between Sunday to Thursday, 7pm to 5am, when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of workers and road users and reduce impact to the local community. Every effort will be made to complete particularly noisy works prior to 11pm, where possible.

Businesses and residents in close proximity to the works may experience:

  • increased noise, truck movements, vibration, dust and light from mobile light towers.

  • changed traffic conditions, including minor traffic delays, reduced speed limits, lane closures and detours.

  • temporary detours for people walking and riding.
