MAR 2021Tenders called for intersection upgrades

Tenders have now been called for the intersection upgrades of City Road (Pacific Highway) with Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive.

Initial work in the project area started in December 2020 and includes installing and extending a new concrete median barrier, repairing an existing barrier, and upgrading drainage. Work to repair the southbound retaining wall on City Road will also be carried out this year.

See the February 2020 community update (PDF, 560Kb) for more information.

Project information

Up to 6000 vehicles per hour travel through the intersections of City Road (Pacific Highway), Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road.

The intersections have been identified as ‘pinch points’ meaning motorists experience delays.

As they are close together, the intersections share congestion and safety issues during busy periods.

The upgrades will:

  • improve traffic flow on City Road (Pacific Highway) at the intersections of Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by reducing existing queues
  • address safety issues at the existing right turns from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by extending right turn lanes
  • build new left turn lanes from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and into Kahibah Road
  • improve pedestrian facilities, including new crossings and footpaths.

We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as the project progresses.

Work on the intersection upgrades is expected to be completed by mid-2022, weather permitting.
