Work to Reduce Yarrabilba Traffic Delays

With increased traffic on the Waterford-Tamborine Road due to popularity of the Yarrabilba estate the state government is starting a road upgrade between Anzac Avenue to Hotz Road.

This major arterial road, which connects Logan to the Gold Coast hinterland, currently carries 14,000 vehicles per day. The project will provide long-term benefits to the community by increasing the road network capacity and improving traffic flow to accommodate predicted traffic volumes.

The project will begin construction in August 2017 and is due for completion early 2019.

This program of work will upgrade the 4 intersections located on Waterford—Tamborine Road between Anzac Avenue and Hotz Road, Logan Village in addition to widening the existing 2.6km stretch of road along this section of Waterford—Tamborine Road from 1 to 2 traffic lanes in each direction. A centre median will separate northbound and southbound traffic lanes.

These works will provide a number of benefits including reduced travel times and safety for motorists, cater for future traffic growth by providing improved public and active transport facilities.

Funding has been made available through Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) to a maximum of $40 million over a 4-year period (December 2014 – September 2018).

The construction contract has been awarded to Doval Constructions Pty Ltd and includes:

  • Widening Waterford – Tamborine Road between Anzac Avenue and Hotz Road from two to four lanes by providing an additional lane in each direction.
  • Signalising of the intersections of Anzac Avenue, Stockleigh road, Pioneer Drive and Hotz Road with Waterford – Tamborine Road to provide improved access for local residents and provide safe crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Signalised emergency access to provide time efficient and safe passage for Fire and State Emergency Services.
  • Vegetation clearing, fencing and earthworks to facilitate the upgrade.

The site compound will be established on the eastern side of the Stockleigh Road intersection. Residents can expect increased levels of noise, vibration and dust in surrounding areas.

Standard work hours and days will be Monday to Saturday, 6am to 6pm, however it is expected some night works will be required.
