Drivers warned to steer clear of major Parkwood intersection, detours in place

MOTORISTS are being warned to steer clear of a major intersection at Parkwood this weekend as crews wrap up installing Stage Two of the Light Rail.

Weather permitting, the intersection of Olsen Avenue and Wintergreen and Parklands Drive outside the Gold Coast University Hospital will be closed to all traffic from 8 o’clock tonight (Friday).

This will allow crews to complete the final asphalt resurfacing. The closure will be in force until 5am Monday.


Motorists wanting to access the Gold Coast University Hospital can still do so via Hollows Way or Parklands Drive via the Smith Street Motorway. See attached detour map below.

Vehicle access to businesses along Olsen Avenue will also be maintained.

Those wanting to visit the Southport Sharks can do so via Melia Court or Musgrave Avenue, while those wanting to get to Dan Murphy’s, The Parkwood Tavern, and the United service station can do so by using the Wintergreen Drive entrance from Henry Cotton Drive or the Olsen Avenue entrance opposite Hollows Way.
