Following a few months of works, the Dorville Road improvements project near Cabbage Tree Creek in Aspley is finally complete.
Dorville Road was widened to provide a new on-road parking lane between Cabbage Tree Creek and the Kingfisher Recycling Centre. The works involve formalising the eastern road edge with new kerb and channel.
The project also included the replacement of a 90-metre section of footpath on the eastern side of Dorville Road, resurfacing the road between Cabbage Tree Creek and the Kingfisher Recycling Centre road line marking, landscaping and turf.
The Dorville Road improvements project was completed to formalise street parking, improve drainage, eliminate washouts, and improve pedestrian safety, notably for local school students and market goers in the area. It is funded under the Australian Government’s Local Road and Community Infrastructure grant program.
The $2.5-billion Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The recently completed work is one of the road and intersection projects north of Brisbane. Extensive road resurfacing has been done on Robinson Road West, as well as multiple roads across Aspley are being resurfaced.
“Despite a world pandemic, we have not slowed down and in fact there are so many projects that have been completed or close to completion,” said Cr for Bracken Ridge Ward Sandy Landers.
