​Brearley Avenue Closure

On 7 October 2018, Brearley Avenue was permanently closed to traffic at Great Eastern Highway.

Between 2016 and 2017, we upgraded the intersections of Great Eastern Highway with Fauntleroy Avenue and Coolgardie Avenue, and also closed Brearley Avenue between First Street and Dunreath Drive to facilitate construction of Redcliffe Train Station.

In accordance with section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997, we gave the public notice of the proposed closure of Brearley Avenue on 7 November 2017. The 35-day notification period, which provided the opportunity for the public to comment on this road closure, ceased on 20 December 2017. 

We collated comments and submitted a report to the Minister of Lands, where the permanent closure of Brearley Avenue at Great Eastern Highway to Boulder Avenue was approved on 10 September 2018.

To enable the full closure of Brearley Avenue at Great Eastern Highway, a number of surrounding roadworks were required to ensure connectivity and access for residents and businesses in Redcliffe. These roadworks have now been completed.

Modifications to the street lighting and provision of new path lighting along Brearley Avenue, will be undertaken in the first half of 2019.

Staging of works

All stages have now been completed, other than lighting works along Brearley Avenue.

Stage One – Completed

  • Works to construct a temporary U-turn facility for eastbound traffic, at the intersection of Brearley Avenue and Boulder Avenue, have been completed.

Stage Two – Completed

  • Works to convert Brearley Avenue from a dual to single carriageway between Boulder Avenue and First Street have been completed. The northern carriageway has been retained and converted to provide two-way access.

Stage Three – Completed

  • On 7 October 2018, Brearley Avenue was permanently closed to traffic at Great Eastern Highway.
  • Works to modify the intersection of Great Eastern Highway and Tonkin Highway southbound off-ramp have been completed. The redundant sections of Brearley Avenue from Great Eastern Highway to First Street have been prepared for landscaping, which will be undertaken by the City of Belmont.
