Construction on a significant portion of the Mango Hill Ring Road Connection will start on Tuesday.

The work will extend Lamington Rd from its existing cul-de-sac section through to Anzac Ave.

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery says stage one of the $6.8 million project will include the design and construction of 165m of new two-lane median divided road, new pedestrian crossing facilities, paths, on-road cycle lanes and improved landscaping.

“This is a very exciting project for the areas of Mango Hill and North Lakes.

“Once completed it will have a positive impact on the area and local traffic flow,” he says.

“The staged approach to this project is necessary due to the relocation of a large water main, to then be followed by the critical road connection through to Anzac Ave.”

The overall project, to be completed in three stages, aims to ease local traffic congestion by allowing traffic flow between the Mango Hill Village, on the North Lakes side of Anzac Ave and the two Mango Hill train stations, so residents can avoid travelling along Anzac Ave.

Better traffic flow

Deputy Mayor Jodie Shipway (Div 4) says the works herald the long-awaited Mango Hill Ring Road becoming a reality.

“The new Mango Hill Ring Road Connection will assist traffic flow and improve safety, which is a commitment I have made to residents following their concerns about this area of road,” Cr Shipway says.

“The works will provide a second entrance to Mango Hill ‘village’ and will also extend the existing right-turn-lanes on Anzac Ave, given the expected traffic volume increases this long-awaited second entrance will generate.”

Milestone moment

Mango Hill Progress Association president Laurence Christie has long advocated for the road upgrade and welcomed the work starting.

“This is a milestone for the area and we are pleased to see these much-needed changes happening to ensure our area continues to grow sustainably and traffic flow does not become an issue,” Mr Christie says.

The Mango Hill Ring Road Connection will link areas on both sides of Anzac Ave and the two Mango Hill train stations and navigates along Memorial Dve, Halpine Dve, Mango Hill Boulevard, Capestone Boulevard and Lamington Rd.
