Fulham Road and Hugh Street – Intersection Upgrade

Townsville City Council plans to upgrade the intersection of Fulham Road and Hugh Street in Pimlico.

This project is a joint initiative between Townsville City Council and the Queensland Government, partly funded under the Cycle Network Local Government Grants (CNLGG) program.

The CNLGG program supports Councils to deliver best practice, high quality and safe cycling infrastructure and facilities.

Townsville City Council is committed to improving the liveability of Townsville and encourage active and healthy lifestyles by providing accessible public facilities, community infrastructure and creating placemaking activities.

As part of this project, Council will provide on-road cycle lanes, and shared pathways. Works will also include:

  1. Intersection upgrades to facilitate the installation of the on and off-road cycle infrastructure
  2. The modification of existing bus stops
  3. Road widening
  4. Drainage works

Construction is tentatively scheduled to commence in April 2021 (weather permitting) and will be delivered in stages.
