Road works

The City of Ipswich will use recycled materials for the production of foam bitumen to be used in ongoing works along Springfield Parkway and the Springfield Greenbank Arterial.

The project, now in its second-phase, will expand both Springfield Parkway, and the Greenbank arterial from two lanes to four, in an effort to accommodate future population growth.

City of Ipswich Mayor and chair of the Growth, Infrastructure and Waste Committee, Teresa Harding, said Council continued to lead by example in looking for sustainable ways to work.

“The foam bitumen uses the existing material on-site which reduces the need for transporting new materials, reducing the number of trucks on the road and producing a more efficient use of resources,” Mayor Harding said.

“Foam bitumen is also more environmentally friendly to produce as it does not need the high temperatures that traditional bitumen does, reducing the carbon footprint.

“Council is leading the way on circular economy initiatives through its Waste and Circular Economy Transformation Policy Directive, which will change the way our city thinks about waste, recycling and modern manufacturing, as well as drive change in the wider industry.

Growth, Infrastructure and Waste Committee Deputy Chairperson, Cr Paul Tully, said some Stage 3 early works have been advanced in preparation for service relocations, including abutment modifications for the Centenary Highway Bridge and demolition and earthworks along the new Stadium frontage and around the new Park and Ride Facility.

“Stage 3 is located on Springfield Greenbank Arterial (from Eden Station Drive to Sinnathamby Boulevard) and is currently in the final design phase,” Cr Tully said.

“Once the design and early works have been completed the service relocations will commence, followed by civil works with an estimated duration of 18 to 24 months.
