Upgrade works recommence at Kelvin Grove intersection

06 November, 2014

Brisbane City Council will re-commence construction on the Kelvin Grove Road and Windsor Road intersection upgrade at Kelvin Grove on 17 November 2014.

Infrastructure Chairman Councillor Adrian Schrinner said the $1.4 million project would reduce congestion and improve safety for road users.

“Works to widen the inbound lanes of Kelvin Grove Road were completed in April 2014 and since then, Council has been looking at options to construct a new retaining wall with the least amount of impact on the road network and local community,” Cr Schrinner said.

“The next stage of these works will include excavation in the centre median as well as the construction of the new retaining wall to allow the extension of the right-hand turn pocket at Bishop Street.

“While the right turn into Bishop Street is temporarily closed to all traffic from mid-January to late February 2015, a short-term detour will be in place for the safety of road users and the community.”

The works will require some temporary lane closures of the inbound and outbound lanes as follows:
• 17 November: Lane closures will be in place Monday to Saturday from 10am to 8pm, for approximately three weeks, for piling works,
• Friday 16 to Sunday 18 January 2015: Lane closures of both the inbound and outbound lanes will be in place from 8am to 5pm, to install temporary barriers,
• Monday 19 January – late February 2015: Inbound and outbound lanes will be closed during off-peak hours and the right-turn into Bishop Street will be temporarily closed.

Cr Schrinner said every effort would be made to minimise disruption to the local community during construction.

“Due to the high volume of traffic using Kelvin Grove Road, some work will be required to be undertaken at night and on weekends when traffic volumes are lower, as well as during the day,” he said.

“I thank residents in advance for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused while these important works take place.”

The works are due to be completed in early 2015, weather permitting.
