Mexican stand-down at Bethania
One of the city’s more challenging intersections is a step closer to being fixed.
The upgrade to Albert Street, Station Road and the Logan River Road off ramp intersection at Bethania, which includes traffic signals, is expected to be completed next month.
The upgrade was part of the record $147 million roads expenditure in Logan City Council’s 2021/22 budget.
The upgrade also received funding from the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery and Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
Councillor Tony Hall says the intersection generated complaints from frustrated motorists.
‘It used to be like a Mexican standoff and there were accidents and near misses on nearly a daily basis,’ Cr Hall says.
‘The traffic lights will take all the guess work out of who has right of way which will make a big difference.’
Council manages more than 2,322 km of sealed roads, 1,317 km of footpaths, 32,000 streetlights and 1,293 km of stormwater pipes.
