Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street black spot project.
The upgrade will improve safety for all road users as part of the 2019-20 Australian Government Black Spot Program.
Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise that works to upgrade the Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street intersection in Spring Hill are now complete. The upgrade will improve safety
for all road users as part of the 2019-20 Australian Government Black Spot Program.
The Black Spot Program is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to reduce crashes on Australian roads and improve road safety by implementing upgrade measures such as
roundabouts, traffic signals and upgrades appropriate to each black spot location.
The Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street intersection was identified for these works as it experienced a relatively high crash rate, with 12 reported crashes at the intersection between
January 2013 and December 2018. The majority of crashes resulted from right-turn movements from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street.
The project will improve safety of right-turn and through movements.
Works on the intersection of Gregory Terrace and Boundary Street started in late September 2019 and are now completed – they involved:
converting existing filtered right-turns to fully controlled right-turns at both approaches from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street
providing additional lanterns for pedestrian safety
extending the right-turn lane from Gregory Terrace into Boundary Street (Brisbane Grammar School) by removing the existing median
upgrading pedestrian kerb ramps across Boundary Street on the eastern side of the intersection
providing additional cycle lane line marking on Gregory Terrace.
The upgrade will improve safety for all road users and Council would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding while the works were completed and Trevor Evans MP for helping secure this investment in our suburb.
