Traffic lights being installed at Goodna to improve road safety

Traffic lights coming to the corner of Church
and Alice Streets Goodna.
An undertaking in the 2014-15 Ipswich City Council Budget will come to fruition in the the next few weeks with the installation of traffic lights at the corner of Church and Alice Streets Goodna.

Cr Paul Tully - Got the
money for Goodna in
 the 2014-15 Ipswich
 City Council Budget.
The $1.34 million project is due to commence in mid-April and will take several months to complete.

Work is planned to commence on time, weather permitting.

The intersection will have separate turning lanes from both Church St and Alice St.

Local Goodna Councillor Paul Tully said the lights would have pedestrian crossings for students walking to and from the nearby St Francis Xavier School in Church St.

Cr Tully said the work was expected to be undertaken to keep traffic flowing during peak school times, with some Saturday work possibly being required.

"These lights will ensure a smoother flow of traffic for local Goodna residents as well as drivers coming from Gailes, Camira, Bellbird Park, Brookwater and Augustine Heights."

Cr Tully said motorists could expect minor disruptions during the installation of the traffic lights and should use Bertha St, Mill St and Queen St as alternatives routes during the construction phase.
