Infrastructure upgrade for Forts Junction Hub
The Queensland Government is working with Townsville City Council to upgrade the Forts Junction Hub, the access point for Magnetic Island’s most popular walking trails.
The $2.35 million infrastructure upgrade—expected to be completed during May 2021—will enhance community access to the site, provide much-needed amenities, and create an orientation centre for the island’s trail network.
The project will improve traffic flow and vehicle and pedestrian safety around the Forts Junction Hub, provide toilets and drinking water facilities, as well as more parking spaces, and a drop off point.
It will cater for a range of transport options including walking tracks, scooters, bicycles, buses and vehicles.
Closure of Forts Walk and Radical Bay Road entrance
Road reconstruction within the Forts Junction site means that from Thursday 15 April, the Forts Walk and Radical Bay Road entrance are FULLY CLOSED to ALL pedestrians and vehicles until further notice.
For more information and before visiting, check Park Alerts for all of the details about traffic disruptions and walking track closures.
