Gahans Road – Bargara Road Intersection Project

Share on:

The upgrade of the intersection of Gahans Road and Bargara Road in Bundaberg, Queensland presented a challenge to overcome merging traffic issues. The design needed to incorporate the upgrade of a nearby street intersection and a cane train crossing.

Working for the Department of Main Roads on the intersection upgrade, GHD took into account traffic merging from a number of side streets into a major arterial road. The design allowed for an additional ‘fourth leg’ for traffic from the proposed Bundaberg Ring Road and the existing cane railway crossing.

Design work also featured a series of elements, including construction of a signalised intersection, a street realignment, junction closures, a new roundabout, four new through lanes, pavement reconstruction, pedestrian crossing signals, road lighting and upgraded drainage.

Pavement Engineering


Your single most valuable asset is arguably the pavement system within your network. We understand that pavements are subjected to static and dynamic loads as well as exposure to the elements; only sound engineering judgment, informed by experienced and qualified staff, can provide cost concious and appropriate solutions to your pavement challenges.

We demonstrate an innovative, sustainable approach through our relationships with research centres of excellence at Delft (Holland) Wisconsin (USA) Stellenbosch (South Africa) Transit New Zealand UWA (Western Australia) and ARRB (Australia).
