Stormwater works Saturday 5 May, 6am – 6pm (weather permitting)
As part of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade project a major upgrade to the stormwater network is required. The stormwater pipes cross Sippy Downs Drive.
The stormwater works require large trenches to be dug across Sippy Downs Drive for the installation of new stormwater pipes. For safety reasons temporary changes to traffic conditions will be required during these works.
Partial lane closures will be in place along Sippy Downs Drive and the entrance to the Service Lane will be temporarily closed from 6am – 6pm. During this time the Service Lane will operate as one-way traffic only (east to west).
Entry from Sippy Downs Drive to the Service Lane will be available via the Sippy Downs Drive-High Street U-Turn facility only.
Traffic control and safety barriers will be in place and signage will help to direct motorists.
Intermittent, medium level construction noise is to be expected including the operation of heavy machinery and large vehicle movements including cranes and trucks.
Please take extra care when travelling along Sippy Downs Drive and/or the Service Lane during this time.

Safe school travel (SafeST) program
The safety of students travelling to and from school is one of the most important issues for school communities. One way this is achieved is by providing the safest possible journey to and from Queensland schools. The Department of Transport and Main Roads supports safe school travel with the SafeST program and resources.
Addressing school safety issues
Establishing a SafeST Committee is the first step in identifying and addressing school safety concerns. The SafeST Committee will develop a school road safety action plan for implementing strategies and solutions.
Ideally an action plan would outline:
- what the school is planning to do to improve road safety
- how it expects road safety will improve
- how the school will monitor and evaluate the success of the plan
- when it will be done
- who is responsible for making it happen.
School road safety is a matter that requires whole of community awareness and commitment. Improving the safety of school travel for all children relies on the involvement and engagement of schools (including parents associations), local government and state authorities such as Education Queensland, Queensland Police Service, TMR and TransLink and/or bus operators as required.
