BUNDABERG residents will have improved pedestrian safety on Takalvan Street with Transport and Main Roads continuing to upgrade pedestrian crossings.

Member for Bundaberg Jack Dempsey said the crew would move to the Bourbong Street intersection next week after completing works at the Heidke Street and Enterprise Street intersections.

"Works include upgrades to existing ramps and tactile ground surface indicators (raised pavement markings) to improve safety and assist the visually impaired to safely negotiate the crossings," Mr Dempsey said.

"Minor changes will be made to the alignment of some traffic islands to enhance safety for cyclists.

"Most of the works will be undertaken at night to minimise impacts to traffic and nearby businesses as much as possible."

Works are expected to be completed in July, weather permitting.

"Motorists should expect changed conditions including a reduced speed limit, traffic control and temporary lane closures while the works are underway," Mr Dempsey said.
