Mt Nebo Road Black Spot Improvement Project- End of Construction

21 April 2017

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise construction of the Mt Nebo Road black spot improvement project at Enoggera Reservoir is now complete.

The project included various road safety improvements along a 7.25km section of Mt Nebo Road.

This Project is part of the Australian Government’s 2016-17 Black Spot Programme which aims to improve road safety at locations with high accident rates. From 2007 to 2011, there were 41 accidents recorded in this area.

The completed scope of work to improve road safety included:
• pavement widening at sharp bends to improve sight distance
• improving line marking
• modifying existing and installing new guardrail
• installing warning signage
• tree trimming
• removal of some small tress and five large trees

Five trees were removed as part of the project to improve sight lines for motorists. This removal is being offset in accordance with Council’s offset planting guidelines with no net canopy loss.

If you would like further information on this project, please contact me at the ward office or the project team during business house on 1800 669 416.
