Brisbane – Beenleigh Road to receive upgrade
By Tom O'Sullivan on 31 August 2018
Design works are now underway for an upgrade on two intersections along the route in Queensland and soon, motorists travelling on the Brisbane – Beenleigh Road (Kingston Road) will experience improved traffic flow.
This $11.2 million upgrade will ease congestion on the road, with more than 31,000 vehicles passing through Kingston road each day. More vehicles will be able to get through the intersection faster, increasing capacity and efficiency – with approximately $7.3 million of the $11.2 million funding invested towards extra turning lanes at the Kingston and Compton roads intersection.
Creating a major improvement for traffic flow along both north and south-bound approaches, the remaining $3.9 million will go to upgrading the intersection at Kingston Road and Juers Street.
Following the completion of the design, early works are set to commence with major construction works expected to begin in 2020.
