About the project

Brisbane City Council identified a need to improve safety for all users accessing the Jephson Street and Sherwood Road intersection.

Between 2014 to 2021,10 crashes were recorded at the intersection, eight of which required medical treatment. Six of the crashes were a result of motorist failing to give way when turning right because they were late in observing and or failed to observe the red signals.

The Jephson Street and Sherwood Road intersection upgrade is jointly funded by Council and the Queensland Government’s Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme (TIDS).

Project details

The intersection upgrade has improved safety for all road users and allowed for greater visibility of the traffic light signals. Dedicated right-turn arrows have been installed to control the right-turn movement from Jephson Street into Sherwood Road, increasing pedestrian protection when crossing. Project works involved: 

  • installing additional mast arm posts
  • installing new lanterns with red right-turn arrows to prevent turning from Jephson Street onto Sherwood Road when pedestrians are crossing
  • adjusting the signal phasing to increase pedestrian protection and installing countdown timers at the crossings.

Project timing

Construction commenced in late November and was completed in late December 2021.
