coutts drive & morayfield road

intersection upgrade

Coutts Projects Pty Ltd

Morayfield, Qld

$1.3 million

This project involved the upgrade of the Coutts Drive intersection with Morayfield Road as part of a new internal residential development and the widening of Morayfield Road to provide a right turn lane and bike lane facilities. Upgrades were also completed to stormwater drainage and pedestrian paths.

 

Given that Morayfield Road is a DTMR asset, all works were completed in accordance with DTMR standards and specifications and included inspections from relevant DTMR representatives. 

Due to the high traffic volumes on Morayfield Road, and the requirement to maintain two traffic lanes during daytime hours, effective traffic management was critical to the successful delivery of the works.

 

The available widths of the road reserve and nominated pavement design depths created challenges and required careful planning and staging of works, including temporary line marking arrangements, temporary roadbox batters and temporary road widenings at the tie-in locations.

 

A pro-active approach was taken to community liaison to ensure nearby residents were kept informed of upcoming works and there was minimal disruption to services or access during construction.
