Traffic changes and lane closures
For your safety and the safety of road workers, lane closures between Belgrave Road/Allwood Street and Indooroopilly Central Shopping Centre will be required during the day and at night.
- Coonan Street (northbound) will be reduced to a single lane through the works site.
- Coonan Street (southbound) will be one lane outside of Indooroopilly Central Shopping Centre.
- Vehicles are no longer able to turn right in and out of Keating Street from Coonan Street. Vehicles are still able to turn left in and out of Keating Street.
How does this impact me?
While we are working, you might experience some inconvenience and noise, but we’ll do our best to avoid disrupting you.
You might experience:
- Noise and dust. Noise and possible dust and vibration may be experienced from the construction activities. For safety reasons, reversing beepers and flashing lights will be used at all times during work hours.
- Parking restrictions. There will be no parking on Coonan Street.
- Traffic control. Speed limits will be reduced in the work areas. Lane closures, changes to traffic flow and short-term traffic disruptions will occur.
- Temporary lighting. Lighting towers will be used to light work areas at night.
- Property access. Access to residential properties and businesses will be always maintained.
- Access for people walking and riding. Although temporary changes may occur, access will be maintained so people can still walk and ride safely near the work areas.
Frequently asked questions
Why are the lane closures required?
The lane closures on Coonan Street are in place to allow the construction contractors to relocate essential public utilities such as gas, water, electrical and communication services. Drainage, sewer and road widening works are also being undertaken while the lane closures are in place.
To ensure the safety of motorists and road workers, this work is required to be undertaken under lane closures during the day and at night.
Carrying out works during day and night shifts also reduces the length of time the lane closures are required to stay in place, minimising impacts on local residents and motorists.
How are traffic changes managed?
The level of traffic management required depends on a variety of factors, including the location and complexity of the works.
The construction contractor is required to submit traffic management plans to Council for review prior to any works starting. These plans are thoroughly reviewed by council engineers to ensure they comply with the requirements of the Manual of Uniform Control Devices (MUTCD).
The project team will be working closely with Council’s Congestion Reduction Unit (CRU) regarding lane closures and detours to ensure the most efficient traffic management plans are in place for all road users.
How to stay informed on traffic changes.
Wherever possible, Council will provide advanced notice outlining any changes to road conditions that may impact the daily commute.
Council uses the following notification methods to inform the community:
- electronic message signs across the project site
- information on Council’s website (search: Moggill Road Upgrade)
- works notices delivered to local residents
- newsletters to let the wider community know the current project status
- email and SMS notifications to stakeholder and road user groups – register for regular updates on Council’s website
- these works will also be advertised on local radio networks.
Residents and motorists are encouraged to allow additional travel time and seek alternate routes where possible.
