About the project

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

Council will formalise off-road parking and install a dedicated right-turn pocket on Beenleigh Road to improve safety for motorists accessing the car park, while maintaining traffic flow on Beenleigh Road.

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

Council will be undertaking the following works:

  • constructing a car park to formalise up to 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 will be 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.

Council has identified nine trees that are required to be removed to facilitate the upgrade, including one within the school boundary. All work will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction. Vegetation impacts will be offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements.

Timing

These works are scheduled to commence on Monday 30 August 2021 and will take approximately eight weeks to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.

Wherever possible, works will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Some out of hours and weekend work may also be required.

Construction impacts

Throughout construction, residents in close proximity to the works may experience some construction noise, increased truck movements and low levels of vibration and dust.

Signed detours will be in place detailing alternative access as required.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these works and appreciate your patience while these works are completed.
