THE federal government and Brisbane City Council will boost works planned for Green Camp and Rickertt roads and bring forward land resumptions next year.

An additional $7.5 million will be added to $20 million already promised.

It is expected to go out to contractors as a single project in coming weeks, with resumptions starting in April and construction soon after.

Bowman MP Andrew Laming said he had secured $5 million to complement an additional $2.5 million from Brisbane. The additional cost was mostly flood-proofing Green Camp Road between Rickertt and Tilley roads.

Mr Laming said that from Green Camp intersection, Rickertt Road would be duplicated as far as modelling indicated it was required to maximise traffic signals.

He said the next priority would be Chelsea Road which was a state responsibility for which the community was yet to see a cent from Capalaba MP Don Brown.

Mr Brown said Chelsea Road was a BCC road but, regardless, he was glad to see BCC had brought forward the Rickertt and Green Camp jobs.
