Flood fix on the way for Griffin
Words by Jodie Powell

Reconstruction work to ease flooding issues at the intersection of Henry and Dohles Rocks roads at Griffin is expected to start in the middle of this year.

Moreton Bay Regional Council last week awarded a $10.7 million contract for the work to Hazell Bros, with completion expected by mid-2023.

The project aims to improve flood immunity, with work including raising the road level, building a new road and pavement and installing signals at the modified intersection.

Works also include constructing a new non-signalised T-intersection along Henry Rd for entry and exit into the new Griffin Sports Complex, which will be delivered in conjunction with the ongoing construction of the facility.

A second stage of the project, to be delivered separately, will upgrade existing culverts on Dohles Rocks Rd at the outlet to the North Pine River.

Hazell Bros has delivered other projects for Moreton Bay Regional Council, including work at Old North Rd at Warner and the Dohles Rocks Rd/Bruce Highway intersection upgrade.

The Griffin work will be partly funded by $4 million from the Federal Government's Urban Congestion Fund program.
