About the project

Brisbane City Council has identified the Chatsworth Road, Boundary Road and Samuel Street intersection in Coorparoo as a location that requires an upgrade to improve efficiency and safety for vehicles and pedestrians.

This project is part of Council’s $1.3 billion commitment to more than 90 road improvement projects to take real action on safety and congestion, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting residents home quicker and safer.

The intersection carries approximately 31,000 vehicles per day and has a high crash rate with 33 recorded casualty crashes between August 2007 and July 2017, which resulted in the hospitalisation, medical treatment or minor injury of the motorists involved. The majority of the crashes involved motorists turning right from Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street colliding with oncoming traffic.

The project aims to prevent future accidents by undertaking intersection improvements to control these right-turns.

The project will involve:

  • providing a dedicated right-turn lane on Chatsworth Road into Boundary Road
  • installing a fully controlled right-turn with arrows on both Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street
  • widening Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street to allow for an additional through lane in the westbound direction
  • Changes to signal operations to reduce the potential conflict between vehicles and pedestrians with the removal of the left slip lane from Samuel Street to Boundary Road.

Project benefits

  • Improved road user safety with controlled right-turn movements from Chatsworth Road and Samuel Street into Boundary Road.
  • Reduced congestion with an additional through lane on Samuel Street and right-turn lane on Chatsworth Road.
  • Improved pedestrian safety with modified signal phasing.

Timings

Council is progressing the design for the intersection upgrade and expects this to be complete by late 2018. Construction is currently scheduled to commence in early 2019. Further information will be provided to local residents and businesses as design progresses.
