Third Avenue upgrade

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).

Project features

The proposed upgrade is expected to:

  • widen Third Avenue from one lane to two lanes in each direction (to also include breakdown lanes and centre median strip)
  • widen adjacent sections of Second Avenue and Fourth Avenue
  • install traffic signals and turning lanes at the existing four-way roundabout with Second Avenue
  • move the intersection with Fourth Avenue to the south and install traffic lights and turning lanes
  • provide upgraded pedestrian and cycle infrastructure.

Project benefits

The upgrade to Third Avenue will help deliver:

  • improved safety for road users including cyclists and pedestrians
  • improved traffic flow and less congestion
  • quicker and more reliable travel times
  • 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 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.

Project timings

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 early 2021.

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.
