Work is set to begin in the coming months on a congestion-busting upgrade to the Pacific Motorway in Queensland.

Probuild Civil has been awarded the $60 million contract to build a new Robina interchange as part of a $910 million federal and state government investment in the motorway.

Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Antony Albanese says the project will extend and improve the interchange’s on and off ramps as well as replace the existing roundabouts with traffic lights.

"The project will not only improve the flow of traffic through the interchange but also along the motorway itself, a result which will deliver faster, safer and less frustrating driving conditions for the 40,000 motorists which use this intersection every day," Albanese says.

Queensland Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace says work on the interchange will start after upgrades to the interchanges at Varsity Lakes and Mudgeeraba are completed.
