Mareeba Shire Council says the new roundabout will address safety concerns and improve traffic flow.

“With the expanding residential development in the east of Mareeba and the increased load limit for John Doyle bridge crossing the Barron River, the concentration of traffic at this intersection has significantly increased in recent years,” Mayor Angela Toppin said.

“We have listened to community feedback from the Mareeba Traffic Management Study. The upgrade to the intersection will improve the safety of all road users and will address congestion, speed and visibility issues.”

The zebra crossing will remain on Herberton Street.

The same number of parking bays will be retained, with three angled parking bays being changed to parallel bays.

The construction of the roundabout will follow works to upgrade the water main infrastructure at the intersection which will be done from 8-31 July with the roundabout works commencing in August 2024. A detour will be in place during the works. 

This project is being funded by the Queensland Government through the Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme and Mareeba Shire Council.
