Works have now been completed at the intersection of Old Logan Road and Addison Road, Camira, with the $545,000 intersection upgrade already improving traffic flow and pedestrian, motorist, and cyclist safety.
The completed works, boosted by a $50,000 contribution from council, included a new signalised left-hand turn from Addison Road, replacing the existing free left-hand turn; relocated traffic signals, new concrete kerb, pram ramps, and footpaths.
Deputy Mayor and Division 2 Councillor Nicole Jonic said council is committed to improving road and pedestrian safety.
“Ipswich City Council is committed to responding to the city’s current and future transport needs through its iGo City of Ipswich Transport Plan,” Cr Jonic said.
“This upgrade ensures our motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can move safely through the intersection, which had previously been known as a black spot.”
Division 2 Councillor Paul Tully said it’s important our local road infrastructure keeps pace with our fast-growing city.
“Ipswich is growing rapidly and that means there is extra demand on our roads and footpaths,” Cr Tully said.
“This upgrade will not only ensure our road infrastructure keeps pace, but also improves road safety for our community.”
Locally-based Senator for Queensland Paul Scarr said the upgrade of the Old Logan Road and Addison Road intersection was funded through the Morrison Government’s Black Spot Program.
“The Morrison Government is proud to be supporting much-needed infrastructure to keep people safe on City of Ipswich roads,” Senator Scarr said.
“The Black Spot Program makes an important contribution in reducing the national road toll under the National Road Safety Strategy.”
