Map stormwater works

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.

Temporary closure of a section of Sippy Downs Drive (between University Way and Siena Catholic College) and traffic detour via Service Road.

Dear Sippy Downs Residents and interested stakeholders.

Thank you for your ongoing patience regarding construction of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Project.  We will soon be issuing another construction update which will include news of the construction break over the Christmas and New Year period and details regarding next year’s 2019 construction program.

In the interim and as part of the project, Council must dig trenches across Sippy Downs Drive to install stormwater pipes.

To safely undertake this work a section of Sippy Downs Drive, between University Way and Siena Catholic College, must be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for a period of one day, Saturday 24 November from 6 am – 5 pm (weather permitting).

On this day, light vehicle traffic will be redirected along the Sippy Downs Drive Service Road as one-way traffic. Buses and heavy vehicles will be detoured via an alternative route. University Way will remain open.

Please refer to the map below for more details.

The speed limit along the Service Road will be posted as 40 km per hour and signage and traffic control will help to redirect motorists.

The entry to Siena Catholic College will also be temporarily closed during this time. The project team thanks the School Principals and Parish Council for their assistance.

We thank you in advance for your understanding of these mandatory works and request that all motorists exercise additional caution when driving along the Service Road this Saturday.

Should you have any questions about this work, please feel free to contact us via the details below.

Yours sincerely,

Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Team
