An upgrade to Queensland’s Pacific Motorway will slash travel times and congestion, according to Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace.

The project will widen the motorway from four to six lanes between Nerang and Worongary south of Brisbane and is due to be completed in the first half of 2012.

The $158 million project will also install concrete barriers to separate traffic and lengthen on and off-ramps at the Worongary interchange.

"With 2,000 people moving to Queensland each week it's important to plan for the future, to build better infrastructure and to come up with sensible, workable solutions so that Queensland can continue to thrive," Wallace says.

"That's what this project is all about. It's also about tackling congestion and improving road safety for motorists."
