Logan City Council is promising faster school drop-off and pick-up times for Logan Village and Marsden families.

Roadworks around Logan Village State School began last December and are set to finish in the coming weeks.

Council says the upgrades were designed to “reduce congestion” during peak school times.

The upgrades include:

  • a new footpath on Storey Rd from the school drop-off zone to Manuka Rd and a wider path from the drop-off zone to North St
  • widened sections on both roads
  • new on-street parking lanes on both sides of Storey Rd as well as new parking layouts in front of the school
  • new stormwater infrastructure and kerbing
  • new road signs.

New traffic signals are also being installed near Marsden State High School, which council said would “improve traffic flow and travel times”, and enhance safety for cars, bike riders and pedestrians.

The new signals will be installed in the left-hand turning lane from Muchow Rd into Chambers Flat Rd, while pram ramps and concrete islands in the intersection will also be improved.

Both projects are due to be completed by the end of April.
