Residents have been invited to provide the Brisbane City Council with feedback about a safety upgrade on a major intersection between Moggill Road and Coonan Street, Indooroopilly. The currently existing semi-controlled roundabout will give way either a ‘signalised T-intersection’ or an overpass.
The first option, the Brisbane City Council predicts, would bring better safety for all road users, as well as improve pedestrian and cyclist access through the area. The second option is set around the replacement of the Indooroopilly roundabout, which would unburden traffic flow on Moggill Road by installing (through the installation of) an overpass for Coonan Street traffic.
The roads link Brisbane’s outer west and south-western suburbs and the CBD (Brisbane Central Business District).
The intersection is considered problematic by the authorities, due to its high crash rate, with 32 recorded incidents between 2013-18, resulting in 10 hospitalisations and 17 cases requiring medical treatment, according to the Brisbane City Council. Daily, more than 110,000 vehicles utilize this route.
Residents can provide feedback by:
