Council to Allocate $2.5M for Clayfield Roadwork Projects

In its annual plan and 2019-20 budget, Brisbane City Council has set aside more than $800 million for infrastructure upgrades for a number of suburbs, including Clayfield.

Clayfield will get more than $2.5 million in funding for road resurfacing, congestion busting projects, local network improvements, and major intersection improvements. 

These streets in Clayfield are about to get the following amounts:

  • Winifred Street/Drane Street/Victoria Street – $149,000 
  • Adelaide St – $121,000 
  • Gellibrand Street – $150,000 
  • Sandgate Rd at Birkbeck St – $28,000
  • Widdop St – $2,071,000
  • Shirley Street – $27,000

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner highlighted in his budget speech how Brisbane is a better place than it was in the past because of the LNP administration’s aim to build infrastructure the city and suburbs need.

“Our team invested record funding into Council’s buses and bikeways and doubled the number of CityCats on the Brisbane River, built new ferry terminals and delivered Australia’s first green bridge,” he said.

The Lord Mayor cited ‘strong financial management’ as the reason why the administration continues to deliver major infrastructure whilst keeping the city’s books balanced. 

In 2019-20, Council is expecting to receive a number of contributions from the Australian Government’s Urban Congestion Fund to support upgrades to the urban road network to reduce congestion and to ensure commuters get home quicker and safer.

Once funding agreements are in place and timing of works determined, the projects will be reflected in this budget program.
