Upgrade to start on “notoriously dangerous” Gold Coast roundabout

Work will start this week to upgrade the Gold Coast’s largest and most notorious roundabout.

Federal Member for Mudgeeraba, Ros Bates MP, said nearly $9 million will be spent upgrading the roundabout on the corner of the Gooding Drive, Nerang-Broadbeach Road and Robina Parkway intersection in Carrara – adding that locals should see an end to traffic congestion at the roundabout by the end of the year.

“We will soon see an additional lane, two new sets of control signals, a new slip lane, [and] improved signage and the groundwork for future signalisation.

“The intersection of Gooding, Palm Meadows and Lakelands Drives will also be signalised, meaning traffic can flow freely at this currently hazardous location.

The upgrade is timely, with the roundabout expected to be one of the major thoroughfares for visitors and residents to Metricon Stadium during Commonwealth Games events in April next year.
