Springwood Implementation Projects
The Springwood Implementation Plan Fund (2018-2021) will be used to deliver on priority projects identified from the Springwood Summit to unlock the city-making potential of the Springwood activity centre. Projects identified after the summit are included in the Springwood Implementation Plan. These projects will be rolled out on a medium to long term basis prioritised through future community and stakeholder engagement. The Springwood Implementation Projects include:
Slacks Creek Green Link
The project will connect Compton Road with Moss Street by the creation of a new 3m wide shared pathway. The pathway will meander through parkland with a new bridge to connect both sides of the creek. It is inclusive of rejuvenating the Slacks Creek Catchment, through improved landscaping and integration of cycling infrastructure with open space and public art. The project will include shade structures, bins and lighting. This initiative is supported by the Queensland Government’s Cycle Network Local Government Grants Program.
Murrajong Road, Briggs Road, Paxton Road and Carol Avenue Streetscapes
The project is for streetscape enhancements along Murrajong Road, Briggs Road, Paxton Road and Carol Avenue. The project will include gardens, landscaping, pedestrian lighting, public art and street furniture. A key outcome of the project is the improved amenity and walkability of the streets and contributing towards a positive image for Springwood.
Shared Pathway between Murrajong Road and Dennis Road (School Pathway)
The project is for a new 3m pedestrian and cycle connection between Murrajong Road and Dennis Road. The project will include LED lighting, CCTV, public art, landscaping, seating, fencing along the school, and a shade structure. The project will improve safety and walkability for local residents, students, school staff and local employees.
The streetscape enhancements and shared pathway projects will be delivered under one contract.
Carol Avenue to Laurinda Crescent Pathway
The project is for a new 3m pedestrian and cycle connection between Laurinda Crescent and Carol Avenue. It will include park lighting, CCTV, public art, planting, street furniture, and shared off road facilities. The project includes acquisition of property.
