Alder Constructions were contracted by Moreton Bay Regional Council for the Jinker Track and Bunya Road intersection upgrade.
The works were completed on a busy sub-arterial intersection which is used by both through-traffic, vehicles and pedestrians utilising the adjacent sports facility complex at the James Drysdale Recreational Park.
The project involved the signalised upgrade of an existing intersection, reconfiguration of traffic islands and traffic/turning lanes, pavement rehabilitation, drainage upgrade, on-road cycle lanes, shared footpath facilities and street lighting upgrade.
Some of the key components of this project were:
- Replacement of 1400m3 of existing pavement with new gravels and asphalt to Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) and Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) standards.
- Replacement of 250m of existing stormwater reticulation with new pipework up to 450mm diameter.
- Construction of 420m2 new concrete pathways.
- Replacement of 450m2 existing concrete traffic islands.
- Replacement of 660m existing concrete road kerb and channel.
- Replacement of existing road lighting poles and 200m of aerial road lighting cable.
- Installation of electrical and communications conduit, loops, controller and other relevant hardware for signalisation of the road intersection, to MBRC and TMR standards.
- Installation of 75m fauna proof fencing.
All works were completed in close proximity to existing residences and under live traffic conditions to MBRC and TMR standards.
