Peters Road will be reconstructed between the eastern leg and western leg of the Meringandan Goombungee Road.
The reconstruction program will improve travel conditions for all road users and will include tasks to widen and bitumen seal the road, upgrade local road intersections, improve stormwater drainage and improve property accesses.
The entire project (all stages) will be carried out over the 2017/18 and 2018/19 financial years.
Stage 1 - completed
Stage 1 work between the intersections of Goombungee-Meringandan Road (western end) and Neville Street has been completed.
Stage 2 - current
Construction works on stage two of Peters Road are progressing well.
Works to date have included the reconstruction and widening of the pavement from Goombungee – Meringandan Road to Clifford Street, stormwater drainage improvements, electrical works, preparation for resurfacing and bitumen resurfacing of the completed sections of Peters Road and Clifford Street. This section of road will be open to through traffic before Easter.
Works planned from 29 April 2019
The next phase of construction is from Clifford Street to Willis Road, including the Willis Road intersection. This work will include:
- Reconstruction and widening of the pavement between Willis Road and Clifford Street
- Stormwater upgrades at Willis Road / Peters Road intersection.
- Relocation of electrical and communication services at the Willis Road / Peters Road Intersection.
- Widening of Peters Road to meet the stage one works that were completed in September 2018
To facilitate these works, the intersection of Peters Road and Willis Road will need to be closed from Monday 29 April. We will seek to minimise disruptions where possible. Signage and traffic controls will be in place for the safety of motorists and construction crews. Please refer to the detour map below.
Duration of works
Construction of Stage 2 is expected to be completed by mid-June, weather permitting. Works are planned to be undertaken generally between 6am – 6pm on week days. There may be a requirement to undertake some weekend work.
