Winslow Queensland kickstarts year with new projects

Winslow Queensland is set to commence work on the Samford Road safety improvements project, which aims to reduce the rate and severity of crashes along the 1.5km section of road.

The $13.98 million project, northwest  of Brisbane, is funded by the Queensland Government's Targeted Road Safety Program, which aims to address known and potential crash locations using high-benefit, cost-effective safety treatments.

This section of Samford Road was identified by Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) for safety improvements due to its high crash rate, which includes over 10 serious injury crashes and one fatality in the last five years of available crash data.

Works will include road resurfacing for a safer, smoother surface, installing additional guardrail for greater protection from roadside hazard, shoulder widening and wide centre line treatment to separate through-traffic and reduce the potential for head-on and loss-of-control crashes.

Drainage improvements will be made as well as raised median and traffic islands, new lighting, pavement rehabilitation and green infrastructure to improve fauna safety.

Next month, our team will also begin work on the Gordon Road and Ferny Way, Ferny Hills - intersection upgrade for City of Moreton Bay.
