About the project

The Kuraby State School carpark was identified as an area in the local road network that required an upgrade to improve the functionality and safety of school pick-up and drop-off.

Council formalised off-road parking and installed a dedicated right-turn pocket on Beenleigh Road to improve safety for motorists accessing the carpark, while maintaining traffic flow on Beenleigh Road.

The Kuraby State School carpark upgrade project is an initiative of the Australian Government and is funded under the Local Road and Community Infrastructure grant program.

The project works included:

  • constructing a carpark with 66 new parking bays
  • installing a concrete centre island with associated line marking on Beenleigh Road
  • installing a right-turn pocket on Beenleigh Road
  • constructing a new footpath that connects to existing pathways and crossing facilities
  • turfing and landscaping.

Yellow line marking was also installed on the southern side of Beenleigh Road to improve visibility for motorists, and pedestrians and provide sufficient road width for the new right-turn pocket.

Timing

These works commenced in late August 2021 was completed in late November 2021.
