THE Department of Transport and Main Roads will assess a suggested connection within the design of the soon-to-be-built Blacksoil Interchange.

Member for Ipswich West Sean Choat said the Department would look at the safety of a connection between the proposed new on-ramp and service road to improve access for local residents and businesses as part of the $93.4 million project.

Local people have been telling me they feel short-changed by the design," Mr Choat said.

"The previous government gave no consideration for the residents and businesses in the vicinity, and something had to be done."

Access to the Warrego Highway via Eleazar Dr is closed under the design, leaving only one access point at Bayleys Rd via the Brisbane Valley Highway.

Residents and businesses have long argued for a second access point, with Mr Choat promising to do something during his election campaign.
