Early works complete for Gateway Motorway

Posted On November 5, 2015

The $1.16 billion Gateway Motorway upgrade has completed early works and is set to begin major works early next year.

Minister for Major Projects, Paul Fletcher, visited the site today to discuss progress on the 11.3 kilometre upgrade.

“Fulton Hogan's completion of preliminary works is an important milestone for one of Queensland's busiest motorways,” Fletcher said.

“With the earthworks and drainage extensions at Nudgee and north of Nundah Creek finished, the site is ready for major construction activities to start in the New Year.”

The upgrade will add extra lanes, additional interchanges and a new off-road shared pedestrian and cycle path.

Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports, Mark Bailey, said the project will provide economic benefit for the community.

“Ultimately, the project will provide far-reaching benefits for the 80,000 motorists that use the motorway each day,” Bailey said.

 “From a national transport network perspective, the widening from four to six lanes will cut congestion along this section to ensure more reliable travel times for motorists, including a significant number of freight operators.”

The project is expected to provide employment for more than 1,000 Queenslanders over the next three years.

The project is expected to be completed by late 2018.
