Smoother drive for West Side motorists

05 December, 2011

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is delivering another two key suburban road upgrades in Toowong and Indooroopilly as part of his plan to make Brisbane’s roads smoother, safer and less congested.

Local Councillor Peter Matic (Toowong Ward) said Council had started work on a full resurface of Sylvan Road between St Osyth Street and Bennett Street and Moggill Road between Coonan Street and the Western Freeway.

The $504,000 Sylvan Road and the $295,000 Moggill Road projects are part of the record $65 million Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is spending on suburban road resurfacing this year.

“This project is part of Lord Mayor Graham Quirk’s balanced approach to dealing with traffic congestion that puts as much focus on fixing local suburban streets as it does building necessary bypass roads like the Go Between Bridge and Legacy Way tunnel,” Cr Matic said

“As a result the Lord Mayor is spending about $1 billion on road infrastructure this year alone – more than half of which will be invested in local road upgrades like this one.

“That includes a record $65 million on local road resurfacing and the Lord Mayor’s Road Action Program, which is fast tracking 15 years' worth of priority road works into four years.

“These upgrades will ensure local motorists enjoy a smoother and safer drive.”

Both projects will include asphalting and line marking.

Construction is expected to be completed by mid-December, weather permitting.
