Mudgeeraba Road Duplication
Client: Gold Coast City Council
Construction has commenced on Stage 1 of the duplication of Mudgeeraba Road between Worongary Road and Gooding Drive on the Gold Coast. Lambert & Rehbein were commissioned jointly by the Gold Coast City Council and the Department of Main Roads to carry out the Preliminary and Detailed Design for the duplication.
The existing two lane two way road parallels the Pacific Motorway (M1) and services a combination of rural, life style and urban developments. The ever increasing urban development being undertaken in the area has placed significant pressures on the existing road infrastructure.
The widening of Mudgeeraba Road along this section to provide for a four lane median divided carriageway will substantially reduce traffic congestion and greatly improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
The project involves the reconstruction of approximately 1.5km road which includes the following feature:
- Installation of traffic signals at the Worongary Road intersection;
- Integration of the Baptist Church development access at the signalised intersection;
- Duplication of the Worongary Creek Bridge (2 – 25m spans);
- Installation of manually operated traffic signals at the Queensland Ambulance Service station;
- Installation of street lighting along the total route;
- Right turn facilities at several intersections;
- Upgraded stormwater disposal system;
- Relocation and upgrade of water and sewer main services; and
- Relocation of Telstra and Energex plant.
