Logomeir Road extension

Changed traffic conditions from Monday 23 October 2017

Motorists are advised that there will be a temporary change to conditions near the Sugarworld Shopping Centre.

From Monday 23 October 2017, there will be no access from the shopping centre car park (closest to the Coles Expess Service Station) onto Walker Rd.

This exit will be closed for approx. 3 weeks, weather permitting. Access between the service station and shopping centre carpark will be maintained.

Project update

The first stage of this project is complete. Stage 2 works are approximately 30% complete. This work involves intersection road works, traffic signals and lighting to connect the new extension to Walker Road. Lane closures will be required during the works program and we thank you for your patience.

Stage 2 works are expected to be complete by November 2017.

The extension of Logomeir Road will connect the suburbs of Bentley Park and Edmonton from Bicentennial Road to Walker Road, linking with the newly opened sporting precinct.

It will ultimately be constructed as a four-lane, median-divided road and will be delivered in three stages.

The first stage which was completed in March 2017 included relocation of utilities, undergrounding of some electrical wiring, stormwater drainage, relocation of the cane rail and a retaining wall.

Stage 2 comprises the construction of a signalised intersection at Walker Road. This work will be undertaken from September to November 2017.

In the longer term, Logomeir Road will provide direct access to the Bruce Highway once the Department of Transport and Main Roads constructs the future Bentley Park Interchange.
