Project Description

The existing linkage (extension of Third Avenue) is insufficient to carry the proposed level of traffic as outlined by Council's Structure Plan for the development of this portion of Berrinba. The Structure Plan has identified the need for this major spine road to provide a connection for the development into the existing major road network. The construction of this road will provide a catalyst and access for economic growth in the area. With the construction of the new major road, local traffic will be separated from arterial traffic and loading on the local road network should subsequently be reduced.

This project is part of a staged connection of Third Avenue to Gilmore Road and Stage 3 is the continuation of Third Avenue between the Bardon Road roundabout and the Logan Motorway underpass. The scope of the project includes the construction of a new four-lane road and the closure of the existing linkage to provide a cul-de-sac for existing residential properties. The works include miscellaneous works related to the pavement construction, including but not limited to, associated telecommunication, electrical and water service relocations, cross-road drainage infrastructure and reinstatement of commercial and residential driveways which are affected by the works.

Total cost of proposed project is $3,000,000
