The Wellington Street / Panorama Drive road upgrade program is a road duplication project servicing a key Council controlled north-south arterial link in the centre north of Redland City.

On 2 September 2020, Redland City Council approved funding for the first stage of the three stage program.

This exciting program will bring numerous benefits to the people of Redlands Coast including improved journey to work times, decreased peak hour congestion, and increased vehicle, cyclist and pedestrian safety.

The project is also expected to create nearly 70 jobs Redlands Coast residents and another 70 for other Queenslanders.

The Australian Government has announced $15 million towards intersection upgrades along the route and Council is working with the Australian Government to finalise details.

The 3 stages of the program include:

  1. Stage 1- Boundary Road to South Street, Thornlands (2020-2023)
  2. Stage 2- South Street to Bay Street, Thornlands/ Cleveland (2024-2027 TBC)
  3. Stage 3- Bay Street to Russell Street, Cleveland (2027-2030 TBC)

The total corridor upgrade is valued at approximately $90 million.

Stage 1 will involve road duplication along Panorama Drive from Boundary Road to the Wellington Street intersection and on Wellington Street from the Panorama Drive intersection as far as South Street, Thornlands. Intersection upgrades are proposed at Ziegenfusz Road/Panorama Drive and Panorama Drive/Wellington Street, delivering greater road capacity and safety benefits.

Services including electricity, NBN and telecommunications will be relocated outside the road and into the verge before road works can begin. Minor disruptions are likely to occur as works progress, and advance notice will be provided to road users during these times. Intermittent disruptions are expected, however much of the work will allow for the existing road to continue to carry traffic while the new lanes are constructed on the adjacent road reserve. Safety is a key priority for Council and there may be some reduction in posted speed limits during construction.

Stage 2 will see the road duplication continue along Wellington Street from South Street to Bay Street, and Stage 3 from Bay Street to Russell Street, subject to future Council approval, availability of Federal and State grants and other city-wide capital works priorities.
