Townsville City Council is upgrading a major intersection thanks to $906,500 in Black Spot Program funding.
Council works to upgrade the intersection at Geaney Lane and Deeragun Road at Deeragun started on October 3.
Infrastructure Committee Chair Cr Mark Molachino said the works at this intersection were crucial to reducing the accidents on the stretch of road.
“Workers will install a single lane roundabout on the intersection and realign the pedestrian and cycle path over the next nine weeks to transform the way vehicles travel through the intersection,” he said.
The project will run for about nine weeks, weather permitting.
