Moreton Bay Regional Council (Council) is progressing the upgrade of street-scaping along Biggs Avenue in Beachmere.
About the upgrades
Council supports a healthy and active lifestyle for residents by investing in safe, efficient, reliable and integrated traffic and pedestrian networks.
The Biggs Avenue Street-Scaping project is a response to requests from the public for improved safety for people crossing the street between the park, shops and cafes.
It is important that Council continually review and improve our pedestrian networks to make sure they are appropriate and meet the communities needs.
The project will improve public safety and accessibility by:
- Providing shared traffic and pedestrian zones
- Adding more parking spaces
- Reducing speed limit to 20km/h in shared zones
- Protecting existing trees
- Increasing garden bed planting
- Upgrading drainage
- Adding new street furniture including bench seats
What can we expect to see during construction?
While upgrades are being completed, you may see:
- Temporary footpaths providing alternative walking areas
- Temporary detour signage for pedestrians and cars
- Temporary variable message signs (VMS) alerting you to construction work
- Street lane closure
- Construction site fencing
- Construction machinery on site which may be noisy at times
Where and when are the upgrades taking place?
Upgrades will be rolled out in stages commencing early 2022. Stage 1 and 2 construction will occur to the north of Biggs Avenue at Main Street intersection. Stage 3 upgrades will take place at the Southern end opposite Mazlin Park.
