We are designing an upgrade to Third Avenue between Fourth Avenue and Curtisii Court.
Logan is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, with the population set to almost double by 2041.
This population increase will see more vehicles on our roads and we are investing in the network to make sure it is fit for the future.
The Third Avenue upgrade project will increase the capacity of the road to safely carry the projected traffic growth from housing and business developments to the south.
If Third Avenue is not upgraded, congestion and delays can be expected into the future as the volume of traffic increases along it and other local roads.
The project is included in our Integrated Local Transport Plan, for more information, please download Way2Go Plan (PDF 1310 KB).
The proposed upgrade is expected to:

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 also need to tie the existing driveways within the project area into the new road design.
We do contact property owners and tenants who are directly impacted by the project to highlight potential property acquisitions and request any specific driveway needs.
The project has now completed the preliminary design phase and detailed design has started.
The acquisition areas for affected properties will become clearer during the detailed design stage. This information is expected to be available in late July / early August.
Property owners and tenants will be contacted at this time to discuss the proposed acquisitions in more detail as well as the land acquisition process.
Construction is currently scheduled to start in the 2021 / 2022 financial year, pending approvals and funding allocation.
We will keep you informed throughout this project.
