Rothwell Roundabout Upgrade – Completion Aimed For Late 2017


From July 2016, work will commence on upgrading the Deception Bay Road and Anzac Avenue intersection, Rothwell.

The upgrade includes the reconfiguration of the intersection from a roundabout to a signalised intersection.

Commonly known as the Rothwell Roundabout, the intersection is located within Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) and provides a link to Deception Bay Road and Anzac Avenue at Rothwell. The first construction activities will include the installation of traffic controls, vegetation clearing and the relocation of services. The Rothwell Intersection Upgrade (RIU) is due for completion by late-2017, construction and weather permitting.

The RIU includes reconfiguring the roundabout to a signalised intersection. As the intersection will be 1.5 metres higher than McGahey Street, entering or exiting the street would be on a steep gradient with limited visibility, therefore McGahey Street will become a cul-de-sac to improve safety, efficiency and capacity throughout the Rothwell intersection.

The upgrade will also include an additional left turn lane to provide access to the Woolworths Shopping Centre and Shell Service Station, for motorists turning from Anzac Avenue (eastbound) onto Deception Bay Road (northbound). Signalised crossings will be provided on all legs of the intersection to improve pedestrian connectivity.

Project benefits

The RIU will bring many key benefits to both local residents and those travelling through to the wider region. Key benefits include:

  • Increased safety for motorists, local residents, cyclists and pedestrians
  • Designated cycle lanes throughout the intersection
  • Signalised pedestrian crossings and paths throughout and adjacent to the intersection
  • Decreased travel times for motorists by easing congestion and increasing capacity

Construction activities

Early work activities will involve raising the current road level around the existing roundabout and medians to prepare for temporary traffic realignments, and the installation of traffic management barriers. Once the existing road levels have been raised, a temporary traffic realignment will be implemented to move traffic lanes closer to the existing roundabout to accommodate road construction activities on the outer part of the road corridor. This stage will also involve drainage works, relocation of services and earthworks.

Due to the nature and location of some work activities, night work will occur between 6.30pm to 6.30am when traffic volumes are at their lowest. Works are not expected to significantly impact current traffic flows. Where possible, affected residents and businesses will be notified in advance of activities scheduled outside normal working hours. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during these important activities.

What to expect:

  • Mobile lighting towers to light the work area.
  • The use of light vehicles, mobile cranes, excavators, trucks, compaction rollers, profilers and road sealing trucks, and line marking plant.
  • Cutting tools, tree clearing and stump grinding machinery.
  • Work will be carried out under traffic control at all times and may cause some minor delays for traffic.



Project information

The Rothwell Intersection Upgrade (RIU) is a joint federal, state and local government initiative. The upgrade will convert the existing roundabout at Deception Bay Road and Anzac Avenue to a signalised intersection.

The RIU will deliver an improved intersection and relieve traffic congestion by increasing the capacity and reliability for motorists and provide safe access to the Rothwell station precinct. The design will include signalised pedestrian crossings, shared user path and designated cyclist lanes. The RIU will take approximately 12 months to complete, weather and construction conditions permitting. CPB Contractors Pty Ltd were awarded the contract to design and build the project.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads appreciate your patience during these important works and will continue to update you as work progresses.
