Section A: Mt Gravatt–Capalaba Road upgrade (Broadwater Road to Gardner Road)
Upgrading the interchange of the Gateway Motorway and Mount Gravatt–Capalaba Road will improve safety and access to and from the Gateway Motorway and benefit over 35,000 motorists who use Mount Gravatt–Capalaba Road daily.
The upgrade will also improve connectivity and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
McIlwain Civil Engineering will undertake the construction of this project. Works commenced onsite in April 2014.
The project is expected to be completed by late 2015, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Section B: Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway
The Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway is among Queensland’s busiest on-ramps with an average of 30,000 vehicle movements per day.
Extending and upgrading the on-ramp alignment has improved safety and reliability for motorists allowing more distance and time to merge with through traffic.
South East Busway extension
The South East Busway extension allows buses travelling to and from Rochedale and Rochedale South to directly access the South East Busway network at School Road.
Construction for this project commenced in late 2012 and was completed in March 2014.

Section A: construction underway
The upgrade of the interchange of the Gateway Motorway and Mt Gravatt–Capalaba Road between Broadwater Road and Gardner Road was awarded to McIlwain Civil in February 2014. Construction commenced in early April 2014.
Works to complete the new bridge and widen Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road are continuing with asphalting and linemarking activities taking place in various locations on site during late October and November, 2014 weather and construction conditions permitting.
In order to minimise disruption to traffic and ensure the safety of motorists and road workers, some of these works will be required to take place during night works. Night time construction activities may occur between 8pm and 5am, up to 5 nights per week.
Changed traffic conditions and traffic management, including reduced speed limits and lane closures, will be required during these works.
Following these activities, traffic changes will take place from 8pm to 5am on Friday 21 November. Westbound traffic will switch onto a changed alignment on the new Bulimba Creek bridge from approximately 5am Saturday 22 November 2014.
The section of Bulimba Creek bikeway from Stackpole Street to Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, will be closed from May 2014 to April 2015, weather and construction conditions permitting. This is required to safely complete bridge construction activities. During this closure there will be no pedestrian or cycle access beneath Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road. See the detour map for an alternative route.
If weather or construction conditions restrict activities, works will be postponed until the next available works evening. For further information contact the project team on 1800 799 686.
