Tweed Road Development Strategy - four-laning Tweed Coast Road

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council has begun to design the four-laning of Tweed Coast Road from Morton Street at Chinderah to Grand Parade at Casuarina to cater for forecast future population growth.

The need for this road to be upgraded was identified in the 2017 Tweed Road Development Strategy and the timing of that future upgrade was to be ‘dependent on land releases’. By 2041, it is estimated there will be an additional 187,000 trips a day on the Tweed road network.

There are three major residential developments approved for the area, as well as the new $582 million Tweed Valley Hospital being constructed on Cudgen Road at Kingscliff.

The four-laning of this 4.5 kilometres of road is estimated to cost $55 million and will be undertaken in six sections.

Timing of the majority of the works could be five to 10 years away as it is dependent on the progress of land releases. However, the Cudgen Road intersection upgrade will be undertaken by the hospital developer, Health Infrastructure, some time in 2021 ahead of the opening of the hospital in 2023.

The Depot Road (to be known as Kings Forest Parkway) intersection upgrade will be done by the Kings Forest developer Leda. The other four sections will be done by Council or its contractors.

Section 1 - south of Depot Road to Grand Parade, Casuarina

Section 2 - Depot Road intersection (third-party developer works)

Section 3 - Cudgen Road to Depot Road (start of proposed Kings Forest development)

Section 4 - Cudgen Road intersection (third-party hospital developer works)

Section 5 - North of Noble Lakeside Park to Cudgen Road intersection, and

Section 6 - Morton Street to north of Noble Lakeside Park.

The upgrade will include construction of seven sewer rising mains and sewerage pump stations to cater for both the population growth in the area and the hospital’s needs.

Council is designing its sections of the upgrade project to ensure its construction partners design and build the two major intersection upgrades to tie into a future four-laned road not the existing two-laned road.

The four-laning of Tweed Coast Road is one of 51 recommended road infrastructure upgrades within the Tweed Road Development Strategy (TRDS), which is Council’s primary guide in forming a future road network to cater for future growth.
