Black Spot Program Sets Safety Upgrades for Rosemary and Biota Streets in Inala

Did you know that the intersection of Rosemary and Biota Streets in Inala has had nine crashes and hospitalisations between 2015 to 2021? Under the Black Spot Program, plans are now in place to upgrade this location with better safety features to help reduce the risk of further accidents occurring.

The project has been included in the Black Spot Program under the Federal National Road Safety Strategy. It’s one of four intersections earmarked for improvements, alongside Adelaide and Creek Streets in the CBD, Hamilton and Bilsen Roads in Hamilton, and Forest Lake Boulevard and Rudyard Street in Forest Lake.  

Construction is expected to start by late August 2022 and will be completed before the year ends. Work will entail the following:

  • extending the right-turn pocket on Rosemary Street
  • installing an additional mast arm to improve signal visibility
  • upgrading signals at the intersection to provide a fully controlled right-turn from Rosemary Street into Biota Street
  • upgrading drainage and lighting throughout the intersection
  • trimming trees
  • completing new road resurfacing, landscaping and line marking

“Our improvements will make it easier and safer for you to travel, with upgrades including red arrow traffic lights and crossing upgrades to better protect all road users,” Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said.

“Thank you to the Federal Government for partnering with us to deliver these important upgrades.”
