Edelsten Road Upgrade

Logan City Council is upgrading 2.5 kilometres of Edelsten Road from Mundoolun Road to Wynne Road at Jimboomba.

The upgrade of Edelsten Road will:

  • improve road safety
  • enhance flood immunity.

For information about the extent of works, please download the project map - Edelsten Rd, Jimboomba - Major Roads (PDF 2056 KB).

Our Way2Go Connecting Logan integrated local transport plan (December 2018) lists this project as a strategic north-south, two-lane road link to support our growing southern suburbs.

It is also listed in our Major Roads Statement of Intent (2018) as a priority trunk road upgrade project.

This project is being delivered under our Capital Roadworks and Drainage Program. The project is funded from our source funds and contributions from developers towards trunk road network requirements.

This project is generally expected to involve:

  • softening geometry and widening the two-lane rural arterial road, including road shoulders
  • improving sight distances for motorists
  • upgrading the Davidson Road and Wynne Road intersections
  • replacing existing culverts at Strachan Creek
  • a new bridge construction across Jimboomba Creek
  • construction of a new road surface and drainage infrastructure
  • reconstructing property driveways to suit the new road surface.

To meet Australian design standards we will need to widen the road and improve sight distances. The work will result in some land requirements from adjoining private properties along Edelsten Road. 

We have held meetings with affected land owners as well as a community drop-in event in late November 2019. At these meetings we outlined the project design and showed the potential property impacts.

We will continue to refine the project design to minimise the property impacts as much as is possible

Project timing

The project is in the design phase, with design activities expected to be finished in early 2020.

Pending approvals and funding allocation, construction work may start in 2020.

We will keep the local community informed throughout this project.
