Kingsthorpe-Haden overpass opens on Warrego Highway Upgrade

Thursday 09, November 2017

On 5 December, the overpass at Kingsthorpe–Haden Road and Gowrie Mountain School Road in QLD was officially opened for public use after 9 months of hard work by our QLD project team.

Motorists travelling west on Warrego Highway can now access Kingsthorpe by turning left at the temporary Gowrie Mountain School Road intersection and travelling around the roundabout and over the new overpass to the Kingsthorpe-Haden Road.

Project Manager Kieren Walters said the team is now focusing on the movement of Gowrie Mountain School Road intersection to line up with this new section of the highway.

“Right now we’re completing the surfacing layer on the existing alignment,” he explained.

“Our next traffic switch is planned for the end of December to allow traffic on both carriageways.”

The new overpass and closing of the Kingsthorpe-Haden Road right turn access will make it safer for motorists wishing to access the Warrego Highway from Kingsthorpe and help prevent excessive traffic queues along Warrego Highway.

The overpass is part of the $160M Toowoomba – Oakey Duplication Stage 2 (Leesons Road to Kingsthorpe) project and is one of 15 approved projects in the $635M Warrego Highway Upgrade Program.

Georgiou is currently on track to complete the project in early-mid 2018.

Scarborough team steams towards summer

Thursday 09, November 2017

Work on Georgiou Group’s Scarborough Redevelopment Project is in full swing with Planning Minister the Hon. Rita Saffioti visiting the site on the first day of summer to inspect foreshore works.

Scope of works on the redevelopment includes demolition, service and drainage installation, pavement construction, soft and hard landscaping works, carpark reconfiguration, construction of a new Surf Club and a number of other buildings.

The project team is also redeveloping the public domain areas within Scarborough Beach between Manning Street and Brighton Road, spanning from the shop fronts to the edge of the beach.

In addition to a tour of current progress, Minister Saffioti announced the completion of the iconic Scarborough Esplanade, which was officially opened to traffic in both directions on 4 December.

"Re-opening The Esplanade is a major milestone towards completion of this project and has been a long-awaited change for local businesses and the community,” she said.

Georgiou is progressing well in the lead up to Christmas with the team expected to re-open all car park areas in late December as well as complete the basement level of the new surf club.

All major works will be completed in time for the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships in April.

Whale sized works on Warrego Highway underway

Tuesday 10, October 2017

Thirty-two concrete girders, each the length of a fully grown blue whale, were installed by Georgiou Group last Friday (20 October) as part of construction on a new overpass west of Toowoomba.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the installation of the girders for the new overpass at the intersection of Kingsthorpe-Haden Road and Gowrie Mountain School Road represented a major milestone in the Stage 2 duplication of the Warrego Highway between Toowoomba and Oakey.

“This is a known crash site and safety on the highway will be greatly enhanced once the overpass is opened to traffic in November 2017,” he said.

The girders, which measure 25 metres long and weigh 27.7 tonnes, required specialised heavy transport to move, and large cranes to lift and place them on the bridge sub-structure which was seamlessly organised by our project team.

The next major milestone  for the team will be the movement of Gowrie Mountain School Road intersection some 100-metres north-west of its current position to line up with the new section of the highway.

Once complete, motorists will have the option of proceeding through a new roundabout and continuing south onto Gowrie Mountain School Road, or travelling from the roundabout to the new overpass and join Kingsthorpe–Haden Road north of the highway.
