$1.1 Million Upgrade to Albany Creek Intersection

Mon 5 Feb 2018

Tim Mander, State Member for Everton, is pleased to announce that safety improvement works will soon commence at the intersection of Old Northern Road and Explorer Drive, Albany Creek.

"These works are being undertaken to improve road safety for all road users by decreasing the risk of collision at the intersection," he said.

In 2015 I campaigned strongly for an investigation into safety concerns at this intersection. The Department of Main Roads and Road Safety confirmed that lights were necessary to make this intersection safe.

"The upgrade will focus on a design to address the growing trend of crashes at the intersection and is due for completion this year," he said.

Thu 12 Oct 2017

Australia Post has refused pleas from Everton Park residents to provide a local Post Office.
