Council is planning two projects on Pumicestone Road in Caboolture to improve safety for all road users, improve traffic operations and complete a missing link in the active transport network. Click here to view the concept plans for these projects.
Pumicestone Road/Jensen Road intersection upgrade
This intersection will be upgraded to a signalised intersection to improve traffic operations and safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians
Key features of the project include:
- installation of traffic signals at the intersection including signalised pedestrian crossings
- realignment and widening of Pumicestone Road to allow two inbound lanes and one outbound lane
- dedicated right and left turn lanes into and out of Jensen Road
- sealed shoulder/cycle lane between 2 and 2.5 metres wide on both sides of Pumicestone Road and a cycle lane within the intersection on Jensen Road
- a parking/manoeuvring lane for frontage properties along the eastern side of Pumicestone Road and in Jensen Road (where space is available)
- raised medians at the intersection to separate traffic and control movements. Medians are kept to a minimum to retain property access where safe to do so
- drainage upgrades and reconstruction, where required
Pathway link - Eastern side of Pumicestone Road
A 2.5 metre wide shared path on the eastern side of Pumicestone Road from Jensen Road to connect to the existing path at 155 Pumicestone Road to complete the ‘missing link’ in the broader active transport network.
The path is being designed to suit existing constraints and accommodate long-term planning to minimise future rework, where possible. Some trees and vegetation on the verge will need to be removed to accommodate the project.
Pathway works will be completed before the intersection upgrade with a small segment reconstructed to suit the intersection relocation as part of that upgrade project.
The proposed path alignment may change as detailed investigations are completed and the design is further developed.
Thank you for providing your feedback
Council would like to thank participants for their feedback and involvement in the community consultation process. All feedback will be considered as the design is further developed.
