General construction

Construction works began on Stanley Street and Annerley Road. It will progress in stages along both roads.

Construction will involve:

  • removing and replacing the traffic islands
  • excavating and resurfacing of the traffic lanes
  • installing signage and line-marking
  • installing traffic signals
  • service location works
  • relocating utilities
  • landscaping works. 

Council has identified some tree removal is required. All work is carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines. Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction. Vegetation impacts are offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements. Trees of various sizes to be replanted in the local area.

Additionally, Council will remove a number of car parks, loading zones and taxi ranks to facilitate the project. 

While Council is working to minimise construction impacts, local residents, businesses and road users may experience:

  • increased activity around the worksite, including deliveries of machinery and equipment
  • increased noise and dust
  • low levels of vibration
  • reduced speed limit of 40km/h along Stanley Street and Annerley Road for the duration of the project
  • lane closures and some traffic delays during off-peak and peak hours
  • detours, traffic controllers and signage to safely direct road users, cyclists and pedestrians
  • temporary removal of some car parks 
  • temporary access changes
  • temporary relocation of some bus stops.

Council does not switch off reversing beepers due to workplace health and safety requirements.

Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade: Stage 1 project

The Kangaroo Point Bikeway project will upgrade the Dock and Vulture Streets intersection connecting the Woolloongabba and Kangaroo Point Bikeways. This is part of the Woolloongabba Bikeway project. Council is also investigating additional measures to improve the operation of this intersection.

Merton Road/Catherine Street/Hawthorne Street precinct, Woolloongabba

Construction works are ongoing for completion in early 2019, weather and site conditions permitting. Works are generally undertaken between 7am and 5pm Monday to Saturday. Council may require some out-of-hours and weekend work. Local residents in close proximity to the site may experience some construction noise associated with these works.

The detailed design involves upgrading the existing speed platforms to current standards, so all vehicles can safely manoeuvre the platforms. Council will remove three car parks on Merton Road at the Hawthorne Street intersection for sight lines. Additionally, the project will remove one small tree at this intersection. 

Council will implement the left out only traffic arrangement from Merton Road to Stanley Street early 2019 as part of the Woolloongabba Bikeway project.
