$2.1 million improvements on the way for Muchow Rd

Extensive works to improve the condition of Muchow Rd, Waterford West, will begin later this month.

Logan City Council Roads and Water Infrastructure Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said the project was necessary to ensure the road was maintained in a good condition as the city's population grows.

“The works involve upgrading the existing road surface between Moffatt Rd and Kingston Rd as well as through the roundabouts at Logan Reserve Rd and McGrath St,” he said.

“Works will be carried out in four stages, starting at Moffatt Rd and continuing east towards Kingston Rd.

"This is a major project, and it will cause delays, so I ask people to take an alternative route while it's completed.

“Traffic detours and road closures will be in place and drivers should allow extra time for their journey as well."

Cr Pidgeon said Council would make every effort to reduce impacts on the local community and motorists as much as possible during the upgrade.

“We’ll notify residents and businesses well in advance of construction works and advise any alternative access arrangements that may be required,” he said.

Construction will generally be carried out during the day from Monday to Saturday, however some night works will occur to reduce traffic impacts.

The project is expected to be completed in late June, weather and construction conditions permitting.

The project is estimated at $2.1 million and is being funded from Council’s 2015/2016 Capital Roadworks and Drainage Program.
