Traffic signals on the way for Eagleby intersection

Work will start in early August on the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of River Hills Rd and Brigade Dr at Eagleby.

Logan City Council, City Roads and Water Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said the $3.8 million project was currently being procured for construction.

"Growth in traffic around the area means we're bringing this project forward and we're pleased that it will be delivered in this calendar year," he said.

"In addition to adding traffic signals to the intersection, the project will also bring new dedicated turn lanes, traffic islands and lighting, as well as associated drainage works."

"Council regularly reviews road use to ensure that we meet the community's needs as ongoing growth across the city places ever-increasing demands on our expansive road network, and I want to recognise the efforts of local Councillor Jennie Breene, who has been a strong voice for her residents in this matter."

Division 12 Councillor, Jennie Breene, said she was excited the project would be starting.

“This project will provide safer conditions for motorists in the area and I’m extremely pleased that works have been moved forward,” she said.

"The new traffic signals will make such a difference for the community when they are installed, but until then, I encourage people to continue to obey the current signage and road rules, and also pay extra attention once the project starts and the area becomes a construction zone.

"The contractors will do all they can to minimise inconvenience to people using the road, but we ask that people allow extra time for their journeys during the works."

Project specific information will be provided to residents close to the works before construction begins.

The project is due to be completed in December 2018, weather and project conditions permitting.
