Member for Capalaba Don Brown said completion would improve safety for school children, parents, shoppers and other pedestrians crossing this busy intersection each day.

“The upgraded intersection includes kerb ramp realignment, improved line marking and installation of tactile ground surface indicators to assist the visually impaired,” Mr Brown said.

“Safety of all road users is our number one priority and I am pleased this pedestrian infrastructure will provide better connectivity and a safe crossing access for the community.”

Mr Brown said the $230,000 upgrade was provided by the Queensland Government’s Road Safety Minor Works program and completed a month ahead of schedule.

“Works were originally planned for completion at the end of May however we have been able to deliver this important upgrade a month ahead of schedule,” he said.

Mr Brown thanked motorists and the local community for their patience during the works.
