Greenslopes To Have New U-Turn Signal Signage Trial

The Brisbane City Council is pushing to replace existing U-turn signs in various areas in the city including Logan Road in Greenslopes.

Illegal U-turns have caused a number of accidents, thus the need to improve the signages. The council is now seeking permission from the state government to use new U-turn signages that are easier to understand. This should contribute in preventing accidents and traffic congestion, especially on busy roads.

The council is proposing a yellow sign with two visual cues, a U-turn arrow with a red cross through it and traffic lights along with the words “unless signed otherwise” in black.

The rollout of these new signs have been proposed to be implemented on Logan Road as well as other roads in other suburbs:

  • Logan Road in Holland Park
  • Manly Road in Tingalpa
  • Beaudesert Road in Moorooka
  • Gowan Road in Stretton
  • Main Street in Kangaroo Point

Traffic surveys will be done before and after the implementation of these signs to determine improvements, complaint reviews, and feedback during the trial. All of the findings would be submitted to the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Should these new signs be successful and approved, there will be a roll-out of more signs to other roads in the city.
