Torrens Road and River Drive, Caboolture - Intersection upgrade

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Community consultation has concluded.

Council is experiencing rapid population growth, which is increasing traffic demands on many roads throughout the region. To cater for the needs of the community, both now and into the future, Council is planning to upgrade key roads and intersections across the network as part of the 10-year capital works program.

Council has identified the need to upgrade the intersection of Torrens Road and River Drive to a signalised intersection due to the growth in traffic demands travelling along the Torrens Road / River Drive corridor, which has resulted in increased delays and potential safety issues at the intersection.

A concept plan has been prepared that shows the layout of the proposed intersection upgrade. It includes:

  • Converting the existing priority intersection to a fully signalised intersection
  • Realigning the Torrens Road (west) approach to the intersection
  • The addition of traffic lanes to safely accommodate turning traffic
  • The addition of cycle lanes at the intersection
  • Pedestrian crossings on all three legs of the intersection

Council sought feedback on the concept plan for the intersection upgrade between Friday 9 April 2021 and Monday 10 May 2021. Council would like to thank participants for their feedback and involvement in the community consultation process.
