DESIGNS ON PEDESTRIAN SAFETY IN YANDINA

23rd June 2021

 

A new pedestrian refuge island on Yandina South Connection Road (known locally as Nambour Connection Road), Yandina is being designed.

 

Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton said the project would improve safety for pedestrians crossing this section of Nambour Connection Road.

 

"The good news for locals is improving safety for people crossing the road near Yandina Caravan Park is on TMR’s radar and they’re working on a design now,” Mr Skelton said.

 

“The plan is to install a new pedestrian refuge island between the bus stops, just south of the Wharf Street intersection.

 

"The new crossing point will provide better access between the nearby caravan park and existing bus stops because pedestrians will be able to cross safely one lane of traffic at a time.”

 

Detailed design for the project will be completed in late 2021 and TMR will notify the local community before construction starts.

 

This $305,000 project will include the installation of a new pedestrian refuge island, line marking, lighting and signs.
