Council tackles congestion in Petrie Terrace

Brisbane City Council is tackling congestion in Petrie Terrace with the completion of a congestion busting project in Caxton Street.

Paddington Ward Councillor Peter Matic said the $9,400 project was completed in May and involved the implementation of an eastbound clearway from 4-6pm, Monday to Friday.

“This clearway will allow more vehicles to progress through green lights at the Petrie Terrace intersection on Caxton Street,” Cr Matic said.

“Previously, vehicles would queue back to the Hale Street off-ramp and would often take two to three signal cycles to progress through the intersection.”

Caxton Street is a suburban road serving a number of residential and commercial facilities in Toowong.

This section of Caxton Street is predominantly a two-lane, two-way road with clearway restrictions from 7-9am, Monday to Friday and carries approximately 10,000 vehicles on an average weekday.

Cr Matic said implementing this clearway would create additional capacity of 30 metres and increase throughput to help reduce traffic congestion and enhance road safety.

“Council has undertaken a number of projects to fix traffic choke points $5.9 million committed to congestion reduction initiatives in 2015-16,” he said.

“We will continue to deliver real action on traffic congestion next financial year with the Lord Mayor recently announcing a $1.3 billion roads package which will include 90 road projects.

“The projects vary from reconfiguring lanes to line marking alterations, and while these are relatively small in scale they have a high impact on the road network in terms of increasing traffic safety and improving travel times.”
