Major construction completed

The upgrade of the North East Road and Sudholz Road intersection is now complete. The upgrade was a $7.7 million investment from the Motor Accident Commission’s Road Safety Fund.

Traffic travelling along North East Road towards Modbury wanting to turn right onto Sudholz Road has now been permanently re-routed on to Blacks Road to make the right turn via a newly signalised T-junction.

Redirecting traffic on to Blacks Road has removed right turns from North East Road on to Sudholz Road, helping to improve safety for approximately 73 000 vehicles that use this intersection daily.

In addition, traffic travelling on North East Road towards the city are no longer able to turn right on to Sudholz Road.

Traffic in both directions along North East Road now have three lanes to utilise when travelling through the intersection, easing traffic flow during peak times.

There is also a new ‘Local Traffic Only’ link road between Bristol Terrace, Gilles Crescent and Blacks Road service road for vehicles to access the Plains Village Shopping Centre.

As part of the North East Road and Sudholz Road intersection upgrade, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be improving the landscaping and vegetation along Blacks Road, Gilles Plains.

Minor landscaping and vegetation works will also be completed along Sudholz Road, North East Road and Bristol Terrace.

Works are scheduled to commence mid July 2016 and are expected to be completed by end of August 2016, weather permitting.
