Crowson Lane upgrade

We have commenced design on a project to widen and extend Crowson Lane. The project area extends from Teviot Road in North Maclean to Stanley Court in Munruben.

The upgrade will help to ensure Crowson Lane is able to safely accommodate future traffic demands.

The project is included in our Integrated Local Transport Plan, for more information, please download Way2Go Plan (PDF 1310 KB).

Why is the upgrade needed?

This project will provide a more direct route from Teviot Road to Mount Lindesay Highway for the projected increase in vehicles using local roads.

Traffic is expected to increase significantly over the next 20 years as a result of residential and business growth linked to the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area.

Crowson Lane currently carries approximately 2,000 vehicles per day. By 2041 this figure will rise to approximately 28,000 vehicles per day, a 1300% increase.

If Crowson Lane is not upgraded, congestion and delays can be expected into the future as the volume of traffic increases along local roads.

Project features

The project is expected to:

  • widen Crowson Lane from one to two lanes in each direction between Greenbank Road and Stanley Court (to also include breakdown lanes and centre median strip)
  • extend Crowson Lane from Greenbank Road to Teviot Road
  • upgrade the intersection of Greenbank Road and Crowson Lane
  • construct a new intersection on Teviot Road with the Crowson Lane extension
  • add traffic lights at key intersections
  • add kerb and channel to improve road drainage.

Project benefits

The upgraded road will help deliver:

  • improved safety as traffic increases
  • more reliable network travel times as traffic increases
  • improved flood immunity
  • a boost to the economy - in the short term through construction jobs and in the longer term by improving connectivity.

Property impacts

Given the nature of the project, in some cases we will need to acquire a corridor of land from properties for the wider road design.

We aim to minimise property impacts as much as possible during the design phase. We will engage with property owners and tenants we have identified as being potentially impacted by the project.

Project timings

The project is currently in the preliminary design phase. Detailed design activities are expected to start in July 2020 and be completed by the end of 2020.

The acquisition areas for affected properties will become clearer during the detailed design stage. This information should be available around August 2020.

Local property owners will be contacted at this time to discuss the proposed acquisitions in more detail as well as the land acquisition process.

Pending approvals and funding allocation, construction work may start in early to mid 2022.

We will keep the local community informed throughout this project.
