Driving ahead with upgrades

Posted: 8am 21 Jan 2021

Two major road upgrades in Morayfield are on track for completion with Moreton Bay Regional Council awarding tenders to relocate essential services.

The works on Oakey Flat Rd and Graham Rd are the latest of a $15.4 million road efficiency overhaul in the region.

“Widening a road involves more than pouring new concrete, you need to relocate vital utility services such as electricity, water and telecommunications,” says Mayor Flannery.

“We’ve engaged NBN to relocate their telecommunications network at Oakey Flat Rd and Energex to move their power and street lighting at Graham Rd.

Right direction

“As one of the fastest growing suburbs in Moreton Bay, it’s important that we have the infrastructure in place to cater for the expected traffic growth over the next decade.

“These road and intersection upgrades will help drive Morayfield in the right direction both now and into the future.”

Councillor Tony Latter (Div 12) said once the broader upgrades are complete, the improved roads and intersections will bring many benefits.

Safety first

“Locals and those passing through Morayfield will soon experience eased traffic congestion, reduced travel times and improved safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians,” he says.

“There may be some disruptions during construction, and I’d like to thank residents for their patience during this time.”
