Streets around Morayfield East State School are now safer and less congested after the completion of $5.6 million of upgrades along Graham Rd.
Moreton Bay Regional Council has added a four-lane cross section between Lomandra Dve and Hargrave St, upgraded the school car park and new pick-up/drop-off zone.
There are also three new sets of traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and upgraded footpaths.
Mayor Peter Flannery said the project was supported by a contribution of $703,000 through the Federal Government’s Blackspot Funding Grant program.
“Graham Road is a well-known congestion point for residents in Morayfield and historically a high crash area, so I’m incredibly pleased we could help solve a longstanding issue,” he said.
“Every parent should have peace of mind their child can commute to and from school safely and have the option to drop them off without getting stuck in traffic.
“Moreton Bay is one of the fastest growing regions in the country and Morayfield in particular has seen huge change over recent years.
“This growth will continue with 12 growth fronts across the region, which is why Council is in the process of rolling out $174.2 million road and transport upgrades from the 2022-23 Budget.”
