About the project

Brisbane City Council is planning to upgrade the Gailey Road and Sir Fred Schonell Drive intersection in St Lucia. Investigation works were undertaken in mid-2018 to inform design options for the future upgrade of the intersection.

The intersection has experienced a relatively high crash rate in recent years, with 19 crashes occurring between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2017. The upgrade will aim to reduce congestion in the area and improve safety for road users travelling through the intersection. 

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

Further information about the project will be provided to local residents and businesses as the design progresses. The timing of construction for this project is dependent on future budget allocation.
