Gympie Road/Hamilton Road Intersection Feasibility Study
Since 2015, Gympie Rd Chermside has been identified by the RACQ and the AAMI Crash Index as the most dangerous, and one of the most congested roads in Queensland. The intersection of Gympie Rd and Hamilton Rd is also the location of Westfield Chermside, the second largest shopping centre in Australia. It has 15.5 million customer visits per annum. It’s a busy stretch of road which carries a high volume of traffic travelling to and from the northern suburbs and Sunshine Coast to the CBD, as well as heavier vehicles as it is a main thoroughfare. Key findings of the North west transport network strategic assessment found that over the next 20 years daily road trips in this region are set to increase by 40-60 per cent. There is an urgent need to identify projects and solutions to address this significant transport safety issue.
