December 11, 2009

Major construction work has begun on the $420 million upgrade to the Pacific Motorway in Queensland.

Works are being carried out between Springwood South and Daisy Hill, with the upgrades designed to improve access, safety and traffic flow on and off the motorway for the 140,000 motorists using the route every day.

The works are also designed to help residents in Logan, south of Brisbane, by installing a new interchange and five-lane overpass and new bus stops

"Road crews are already working on the motorway in preparation for heavy-duty asphalting, constructing wider road shoulders, installing safety barriers and providing for future lane upgrades to accommodate for traffic growth well into the future," Forde MP Brett Raguse says.

"This $420 million upgrade is part of a joint state-federal package for the Pacific Motorway from the Gateway Motorway to Tugun, worth a total of $910 million."
