Redland City Council is implementing temporary traffic changes to improve safety at Birkdale Recycling and Waste Centre during the busy Christmas holiday period.
These changes will apply from 17 December 2022 to 8 January 2023, between 8am and 4pm daily:
- A section of Old Cleveland Road East near the facility entrance will be reduced from 60km/h to 40km/h.
- When leaving the centre, customers will be required to turn left only onto Old Cleveland Road East.
- Additional signage will be in place advising of these changes and traffic controllers will be at the site entrance to manage traffic flow.
Residents are encouraged to consider visiting the centre outside peak times, either early in the morning before 10am or late afternoon after 3pm.
Residents are also encouraged to sort their load into waste and recyclable material types before arrival, to improve traffic flow through the centre.
A bypass lane is open during peak times for anyone carrying residential green waste only.
