One of the many benefits of living in rental property in Elimbah is that efforts are always being made to improve safety in the local area, which is certainly the case at the moment.
Moreton Bay Regional Council has revealed that safety concerns are being addressed along First Avenue at Bongaree, including the introduction of a roundabout and a speed limit reduction.
"There is a significant amount of traffic movement from local businesses and the Bribie Island Recreation Reserve onto First Avenue and by lowering the speed limit to 60 kilometres per hour it's expected we can create a safer road environment for all road users, particularly at intersection with Goodwin Drive," conceded division one councillor Gary Parsons.
New road surfacing is also being put in place between First Avenue and Goodwin Drive, which will extend right up towards the Aquatic Centre.
Local police have been involved in addressing road users' concerns and made the recommendation for the lower speed limit to be enforced.
It's hoped that the works will be completed by September this year, providing that the weather doesn't cause too many problems.
There could be some delays during this time, but the road should become much safer for motorists and pedestrians alike.
