Blackspot intersection upgrade: intersection of of Wynnum Road and Jack Flynn Memorial Drive, Morningside.
On Friday 25 September 2015 EaST BUG received notification from Brisbane City Council that they would be commencing work on Monday on an upgrade to the intersection of Wynnum Road and Jack Flynn Memorial Drive at Morningside as part of the Australian Government’s 2015-2016 Black Spot Program.
Both Wynnum Road and Jack Flynn Memorial Drive have been identified as primary cycle routes in the Brisbane City Plan 2014, making this a very important intersection in the local bicycle network. EaST BUG raised a number of questions and concerns about the proposed work, noting that since it involved kerb and median realignment, signage, line marking, resurfacing and service relocation, it was imperative to take the opportunity to improve conditions at this intersection for people riding bicycles and walking as well as for those driving.
