Roadworks - Samford Road

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) plans to undertake some safety improvement works along Samford Road and Suez Road intersection at Mitchelton, to repair the fallen batter slope/retaining wall to provide a safer footpath for pedestrians and road users.

These works are scheduled to begin at the start of February 2016 and are expected to continue until the end of April 2016.

Works will go ahead at night time, between 6:00pm and 5.00am, Monday to Thursday, weather and construction conditions permitting.  

There will be some construction noise, lighting and dust associated with these works. 

There will be limited access to the existing footpath during construction. The footpath will reopen daily after construction hours.

The westbound lane of Samford Road will be closed during the hours of construction

Bunyaville Regional Park was filled with young kids at the Bunyaville Regional Park Fun day.

The event showcased the various groups who use the park on a frequent basis.

North Brisbane Mountain Bike Club, Bunyaville ParkRun, Oxfam trail runners, Enoggeroos Orienteering and Kumbartcho Sanctuary all took part to offer locals opportunities to take advantage of our local forest.

The event focused on getting young kids playing outdoors and off the computer and television screens.
