Gooding Drive Roundabout Upgrade
CMC has been engaged by the Department of Transport and Main Roads to upgrade the roundabout on the eastern approach as well as the circulatory carriageway on the southern section of the roundabout to three lanes.
Works will include upgrading the left turn slip lane along Nerang-Broadbeach Road (southbound carriageway), the introduction of a left turn slip lane between Gooding Drive and Nerang-Broadbeach Road (west to north) and installation of traffic signals at the Palm Meadows Drive intersection.
The scope will involvement pavement, drainage, roadside furniture, structures (sign gantry and retaining wall), lighting and traffic signals:
- 4500 m3 excavation
- 3000t asphalt under traffic
- 2000m kerbing
The key benefits of this upgrade include:
- Improved traffic flow
- Higher capacity
- Provide overall network benefits
- Pedestrian and cyclist connections improved
- Accommodate additional traffic on Nerang-Broadbeach Road (anticipated during the 2018 Commonwealth Games)
Works will commence June 2017 for completion December 2017.
