Big Hero 6 Visits Victoria Park Broadbeach

Come and join us under the stars in Victoria Park for a free screening of Big Hero 6 on Saturday 6 February at 7pm.

If you're looking to enjoy a fun family night out, what better way than to sit back and take in the delights of this highly acclaimed computer animated superhero comedy.

So take the night off and relax on your picnic rug or comfy chair in one of Broadbeach's iconic locations.

If it looks like wet weather, please phone the wet weather hotline on 5581 7016.

(Victoria Park - corner of the Gold Coast Highway and Victoria Avenue Broadbeach  - just look for the horse).

Major Roadworks Department of Transport and Main Roads

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will undertake a number of major road improvement projects in the city.

In Division 10 specifically, work has commenced on converting the existing roundabout at Ross Street, Currumburra Road and Ashmore Road Benowa to a fully signalised intersection.

The project is designed to improve traffic flows through the intersection, reduce traffic congestion while improving safety for all road users.

Full road construction works such as removing the existng roundabout, reconfiguring traffic lanes, installing traffic signals and traffic islands should be completed by late 2016.

Signalised pedestrian crossings and on-road cycle lanes will also be incorporated in the project.

Splitter Islands Constructed in Cottesloe Drive

A splitter island, two access ramps and a new concrete footpath are to be constructed at the intersection of Cottesloe Drive and Rio Vista Boulevard Mermaid Waters.

Funds were allocated from the Division 12 and Division 10 budgets to improve pedestrian safety connectivity.

Kerbside Street Numbering

Due to a number of cost savings within the Division 10 budget, funding has now been allocated to progress the painting of kerbside street numbering for the remainder of Division 10 residences.

The provision of kerbside numbering assists the general public and more importantly essential services to identify the property in case of emergency,

Kurrawa and Pratten Parks Turf Renovation Program

Two of our most popular foreshore parks have reaped the benefits of the City's annual turf renovation program which is designed to enhance and optimise the long-term health of our recreational spaces.

The overall presentation of Kurrawa Park (north) and Pratten Park to the south has lifted considerably thanks to works associated with this program.

Improvements included turf renovation and replacement in bare areas; weed control; mound removal and reprofiling; topdressing and soil amendment to deal with nutritional deficiencies.

The finished product is outstanding and has achieved cleaner sight lines, the creation of a central event open space in Pratten Park and improved access for park users and for maintenance purposes.

Well done to our staff at Parks and Recreational Services.
