Ipswich City Council has completed major works to the Robertson and Grange Road Intersection and has also delivered on the upgrades to the stormwater network on Robertson Road and France Street, last week.
The works completed include the installation of traffic signals, an upgrade of the intersection to include new turning lanes, the installation of LED street lighting, upgrade of the stormwater network and reconstruction of sections of footpath and kerb and channel.
Deputy Mayor and Division 3 Councillor Marnie Doyle said the new signalised intersection and LED street lighting will improve safety at the intersection and help accommodate the future traffic needs of our fast-growing city.
“These improvements to the busy Robertson and Grange Road intersection will mean safer trips for road users and safer crossings for pedestrians,” Cr Doyle said.
“Council is delivering these and other upgrades across Ipswich as we plan for the future transport infrastructure needs of South East Queensland’s fastest growing city.”
Division 3 Councillor Andrew Fechner said the upgrade to the stormwater network on Robertson Road and France Street will benefit the local community.
“The stormwater network upgrade will help these streets better cope with storm season downpours,” Cr Fechner said.
“This upgrade, together with the new footpath and kerb and channel, will improve how the streets look and feel.
“I can’t wait to see residents enjoying the improved walking paths.”
