Logan City Council is planning to upgrade a 3.8 kilometre section of Chambers Flat Road. The upgrade will be from Mount Lindesay Highway, Munruben to just north of Kings Way, Chambers Flat.
The upgrade will provide a safer, more resilient transport link for the area and involves the following works:
Widening the road to allow for wider 3.5m traffic lanes (while remaining as a two-lane road) and 3m wide sealed shoulders. Wider road shoulders will allow residents to move out of the main traffic path when turning into driveways.
Improving flood immunity along the road corridor by raising the road level and building a new bridge over Norris Creek. Up to 8m higher than the existing level.
Enhancing sight distances at bends and crests to meet safe road design standards.
Improving intersections to help safer turning movements and enhance traffic flow. This includes providing dedicated turning lanes at Kings Way and Greenvale Road.
Installing new road pavement and more efficient road drainage structures.
Detailed design of the upgrade is complete. The design meets the requirements of our Planning Scheme and national Austroad standards for a rural arterial road.

Construction of the Chambers Flat Road upgrade is subject to final project approvals and funding. At this stage, construction is expected to start in late 2020 with some early works scheduled ahead of this.
We will provide all affected residents and motorists with information before the works begin.
