The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has delivered two Safer Roads Sooner projects on Gold Coast-Springbrook Road totalling around $700,000.
The first project includes installation of guardrail and rub rail, additional guide posts and speed advisory signs about three kilometres before the intersection with Springbrook Road and Pine Creek Road.
The second project includes installation of guardrail near Hardys Road, near Austinville Road and about 1km west of Lowry Court. Some sections of new guardrail and rub rail (for motorcyclist’s safety) on existing and new guardrail will be installed on the bend about 2km past the intersection of Mt Nimmel Road.
The sections of road where guardrail is being installed are areas with a history of crashes including motorcycle run-off road crashes.
