School of Arts Road and Collins Street Roadworks

Redland City Council has announced the beginning of significant road construction works on School of Arts Road and Collins Street at Redland Bay. The roadwork will commence in September 2018 beginning with the realignment of utility services and is expected to be completed by end of June 2020, construction requirements and weather permitting.

The work is part of an ongoing road upgrade program committed to by Council to improve road congestion and operation of the overall transport network for all users.

This $10 million project will complete the road section between Queens Streets and Penzance Drive providing improved road safety and access and traffic management following significant growth in new housing in the area.

The project will include substantial drainage and utility infrastructure work, including work at the Weinam Creek crossing on School of Arts Road to stop future flooding of the roadway. The finished work includes new pedestrian pathways and on-road cycling facilities linking to existing cyclist and pedestrian facilities, and new pedestrian refuge islands to provide safe connection to the new community amenities in Donald Road and Weinam Creek wetlands. The finished high-grade road surface has been designed to minimise traffic noise and reduce future maintenance. The new road will also be re-routed to avoid the sharp turn into School of Arts Road and to specifically protect the iconic ficus trees that are a much loved and recognised landmark in the area.
