Residents benefit from road upgrades
Division 6 residents can look forward to a smoother and safer journey when they get behind the wheel, with several local road upgrades underway.
Loganlea Road users will benefit from an $80 million upgrade that will see the major road widened from the Logan Motorway to the M1 on-ramp at Slacks Creek.
The new stretch of road will feature 6 lanes – 3 in each direction – that will improve traffic flow and safety on one of the busiest roads in Logan.
Parking restrictions have been applied on Radke Road in Bethania to help ease congestion on the narrow thoroughfare.
The 2 upgrades are part of a bumper city-wide infrastructure program that will see 4 $15 million water, drainage and road infrastructure projects undertaken simultaneously by Logan City Council.
Councillor Tony Hall says the upgrades would be welcomed by the Division 6 community.
‘Community safety is always a priority and it’s one that is never highlighted more than when it comes to our roads and safety on our roads,’ Cr Hall says.
‘These works and upgrades will help ease congestion and make our roads safer for everyone.’
The Loganlea Road project is receiving $22.5 million in funding from the Australian Government’s Investment Road and Rail Program.
