Flood resilience and safety improvements are on the way for Beaudesert-Beenleigh Road at Belivah Creek.

Member for Macalister Melissa McMahon said a $10 million project funded by the Government would widen the road from Stubbin Street to Armstrong Road, and raise the Belivah Creek floodway.

“We know how important access is to drivers, especially during wet weather which is something we’ve seen more of this year than ever before,” Ms McMahon said.

“Through this project, we’ll be raising the culvert heights to improve access and connectivity for locals while making the road safer.

“The intersection of Armstrong Road will also receive a safety upgrade, and wide centre line treatments will be installed to provide additional separation between vehicles travelling in opposite directions.”

Member for Logan Linus Power praised the works, which would be welcome news for Logan locals heading into another La Nina summer.

“This project goes to show just how committed the Palaszczuk Labor Government is at improving travel conditions for the people of Queensland,” Mr Power said.

“The Logan City Council area alone will receive over $1 billion worth of road and transport upgrades over four years, supporting thousands of good jobs and local contractors.

“In Belivah, early works to relocated electricity, water and telecommunication services have been completed meaning we can hit the ground running on major construction.

“The work is expected to take about six months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.”

Motorists will experience short delays when travelling through the construction site, with traffic control and speed restrictions in place.
