Bundall Road/Ashmore Road/Salerno Street intersection

Yes, the properties were mostly resumed last year. A few held out until this year but ultimately didn't receive more for their property due to poor negotiation skills.

What needs to be understood about this project is that it's only a CFI for one of the four legs, the right hand turn to Salerno Street which was removed years ago for the current configuration.

A one quarter CFI will not solve the problems of this intersection.

CFIs only prolong the life of an at grade intersection. Ultimately, a flyover is needed for Bundall Road.

The big fig tree at in the park of La Spezia Court is also due for removal. Locals have begun a group to challenge this. Their Facebook page is here:

I don't see that a flyover is necessary, or would even do anything useful. The main factor affecting congestion through Bundall is the roads approaching Southport (which can't be enlarged any more than the current upgrades deliver). Once its 3 lanes all the way through all an overpass is going to do is make the road block up more quickly.

This should assist the congestion on Chevron Island if it starts encouraging people to use Isle of Capri instead.

Nerang-Broadbeach Rd and Bermuda St is a different kettle of fish though - should have been done years ago.

Good to see the inexplicable love of nasty Moreton Bay figs extends out of Sydney and to, well, (almost) Moreton Bay...

I think it is ridiculous that the fig needs to be chopped down. Traffic engineers have absolutely no regard for anything of value within the urban environment. It looks as though there is enough room to spare it too.

This will be chopped down to make way for the stock standard TMR sea of asphalt, red "stencilcrete" medians and galvanised pool fencing. it will look abhorrent!

Kennedy Drive, Tweed Heads West

Project delays continue, ten or so days ago, a Tweed Shire engineer spoke on Gold Coast ABC radio that the work would be finished this coming week.

This article now says that's not a chance:

John Muntz Causeway to be repaired by start of September. In time for the next wet season and cyclone when it can get washed away again.

Causeway set to reopen soon despite Debbie’s best efforts
Media Statements, Minister for Main Roads etc. Monday, June 19, 2017

Repairs to the John Muntz Causeway on the Gold Coast, severely damaged by ex-TC Debbie are on track, with one lane to reopen before the end of July.

Minister for Main Roads and Road Safety Mark Bailey praised workers today as he inspected progress of works to reconnect Tamborine-Oxenford Road, and says reopening the causeway has been a priority since it washed away during flooding rain in April. “This has been a massive job. So far, crews working around the clock have removed more than 500 tonnes of concrete and 13,000 tonnes of debris from the Coomera River – equivalent to about 1000 truckloads,” he said. “Unless we get another extreme weather event, final repairs are expected to be complete before the end of August.”
also, List of QTRIP projects, but nothing too surprising.

Quote:
2017-18 QTRIP major roads projects for South Coast include:
•$18.6 million in 2017-18, to construct additional lanes on the Pacific Motorway between Mudgeeraba and Varsity Lakes,at an estimated total cost of $180 million. Note: Indicative total project cost to be confirmed through the procurement process
•$18 million in 2017-18, to widen to four lanes Waterford-Tamborine Road from Anzac Avenue to Hotz Road, at a total cost of $39.5 million.
•$14.9 million in 2017-18, to widen to six lanes and perform intersection and bridge works on the Southport-Burleigh Road (Vespa Crescent to Nerang River Bridge), at a total cost of $49 million
•$10.2 million in 2017-18, to widen to six lanes the Labrador-Carrara Road, (Crestwood Drive to Nerang-Southport Road), at a total cost of $22.5 million.
•$10 million in 2017-18, to upgrade the Pacific Motorway/Gateway Motorway Merge, at a estimated total cost of $170 million. Note: Indicative total project cost to be confirmed through the procurement process
•$39.7 million to complete upgrading of various Gold Coast roads in preparation for Commonwealth Games, totalling $160.7 million

According to 9 News, Springbrook Road will remain closed until 2019. On the Gold Coast fixing this road is now a major infrastructure project in itself.

Gold Coast to Springbrook main road still impassable after Cyclone Debbie
Ryan Keen & Megan Birot, Gold Coast Bulletin, June 27, 2017 12:00am

FRUSTRATED Springbrook residents and businesses impacted by the main access road closure face a year — possibly longer — before it reopens.

The Gold Coast-Springbrook Road into the town via Mudgeeraba has been closed since it was hit with 112 slips from ex-Cyclone Debbie flooding three months ago.Residents say they are getting increasingly frustrated at a lack of clarity about when it would reopen and it was impacting business and tourism.

Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey revealed crews had spent three months clearing debris and it was continuing “due to further rock falls including from the recent rainfall and strong winds last week”.“The full assessment of the damage to the road and the development of designs to restore the road and stabilise slopes is ongoing,” he said. “But due to the complexities of the damage, initial estimates suggest it could take more than a year to complete.”

I'm not sure how TMR can gloat about a good news story when their barely 5 year old causeway washed away. THAT IS EMBARRASSING!

Yes, it was a major weather event, BUT certainly not the worst that we could expect and definitely should've been within the design capabilities of this infrastructure.

I heard that when they built the current bridge (the one that got washed away) people in the area told them it wasn't good enough and needed to be stronger/higher/whatever but they didn't listen and built the current bridge anyway.

It wasn't the bridge that failed, it was the stuff around it.

Is anyone using English in this thread? Come on people, none of these posts make any sense whatsoever. Completely indecipherable. My kingdom for a punctuation mark.
