Project Description

The Telegraph Road and Lemke Road corridor upgrade project – Stage 2 will support growth in the northern suburbs by improving access to major transport corridors to the north and south including the Gateway Motorway and Gympie Arterial Road/Bruce Highway. It will also deliver active transport infrastructure along the length of Telegraph Road and sections of Lemke Road and Depot Road, making walking and cycling safer and easier for residents. Stage 2 will connect directly to Stage 1B (Norris Road to east of Mustang Street) at its western end and with the Depot Road upgrade being delivered as part of the Department of Transport and Main Roads’ Gateway Upgrade North project at its eastern end. It will link with the Depot Road upgrade currently being planned as part of the Gateway Upgrade North project being completed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads. The project will involve:

  • construction of a four-lane median-divided carriageway from Mustang Street to the Gateway Motorway on/off ramps
  • installation of additional through lanes and turn lanes at the Denham Street and Telegraph Road intersection and at the Telegraph Road, Depot Road and Lemke Road intersection
  • removal of the existing roundabout and installation of traffic signals at the Telegraph Road, Depot Road and Lemke Road intersection
  • construction of a four-lane median-divided carriageway at Lemke Road from Telegraph Road to Tallowwood Place, with double right-turn lanes into Depot Road and a four-lane bridge at Cabbage Tree Creek
  • provisions for an ultimate six-lane corridor along Telegraph Road • a shared pathway on the southern side of Telegraph Road and Depot Road
  • maintenance of the existing grade-separated cyclist/pedestrian crossing in Depot Road west of the Gateway Motorway on/off ramps
  • shared path linkages on the northern side of Depot Road from the Gateway Motorway on/off ramps to Lemke Road
  • on-road bike lanes in each direction
  • a shared pathway on Lemke Road linking to the existing bike path on the southern side of Cabbage Tree Creek bridge
  • new street lighting
