The next phase of the Palaszczuk Government’s $11.3 million Mount Glorious Road and Samford-Mount Glorious Road upgrade program has been announced, supporting more than 40 jobs.


Member for Pine Rivers Nikki Boyd said design is wrapping up on safety upgrades along a 7km stretch of Samford-Mount Glorious Road between Highvale and Mount Nebo, putting construction on-track to begin later this year.


"Both the department and I have worked closely with the community to identify potential improvements between the Dawson Creek Road intersection at Highvale and Mount Glorious Road intersection at  Mount Nebo," Ms Boyd said.


"This winding road on is popular with motorbike riders, and the proposed treatments include installing new safety barriers and fitting existing barriers with motorcycle protection rail.


Ms Boyd said thanks to Queensland’s strong response to the pandemic, the Palaszczuk Government has been able to continue delivering a $23 billion pipeline of road and transport projects, crucial to stimulating economic recovery.


“Investing in Queensland infrastructure and business creates Queensland jobs, and that has never been more important as unite and recover from COVID-19.


“Works will provide a safer and smoother surface, and motorists will further benefit from shoulder sealing at various locations.


“The proposed design also includes sign improvements and minor vegetation trimming to improve sight lines.”
