Work begins on Pacific Motorway upgrade


Construction work begins to improve Queensland's Pacific Motorway

June 8, 2011

Construction work has started on a $60 million upgrade of the Pacific Motorway in Queensland to improve traffic flows.

The Robina Interchange upgrade on the Gold Coast will replace existing roundabouts at both ends of the overpass bridge with traffic lights.
Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese says the project will be completed late next year.

"The upgrade will improve traffic flow through the interchange as well as along the motorway itself, resulting in faster, less frustrating driving conditions for the 40,000 motorists which use this intersection every day," he says.

Queensland Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace says the upgrade will reduce queuing at the interchange and improve access for merging traffic.

The works are part of the $910 million Pacific Motorway upgrade jointly funded by the federal and Queensland governments.
