Works on the Progress Road upgrade Stage 4 in Queensland is well underway and the Brisbane City Council has awarded Moggill Constructions to deliver the project.

According to Moggill’s statement on their LinkedIn: “The project will involve upgrading Progress Road between Boundary Road and the Centenary Motorway, Wacol to improve safety, increase flood immunity and increase capacity to cater for future traffic growth.”

This project is part of the City Council’s $1.3 billion commitment towards upgrading over 90 roads to improve traffic flow. Works will include:

  • Widening the existing road to five lanes (three lanes eastbound and two lanes westbound) to increase capacity and cater for future traffic growth in the area
  • Installing a centre median island for road safety
  • Upgrading the signalised intersection at the Komatsu access
  • Replacing Bullockhead Creek culverts with a new bridge to improve flood immunity
  • Installing on-road bike lanes in both directions on Progress Road
  • Installing a three metre wide shared pathway on the north side and a 1.8 metre wide pedestrian path on the south side of Progress Road
  • Installing a new 12 space car park with Progress Road Park
  • Installing new LED street lighting
  • Landscaping and creek vegetation works

Traffic surveys conducted on Progress Road shows that the route carries approximately 15,000 vehicles a day, with up to 700 vehicles an hour during peak times. Progress Road is a primary access route for freight transport as well as a B-Double route.

The upgrade between Boundary Road and the Centenary Motorway is the final stage on the Progress Road upgrade between Ipswich Motorway and Poinsettia Street.

This project – which is jointly funded by the Australian Government and the Brisbane City Council – is expected to be completed by early 2019, weather permitting.
