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.
Minor traffic changes to the east and westbound lane alignments will take place on Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, between Gardner Road and the Gateway Motorway, during the week commencing Monday 9 February 2015. These changes will allow works to progress in the median islands. Motorists are advised to be aware of changed conditions and follow all signage and line marking.
Road users travelling eastbound on Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, between Broadwater Road, Wishart and the Gateway Motorway, will experience traffic changes from Saturday 14 February 2015, weather and construction condition permitting. The eastbound traffic will move south from the existing alignment onto the former westbound lanes of the existing Bulimba Creek Bridge.
These traffic changes will allow for work crews to complete rehabilitation activities on the existing bridge, including the existing shared path. Pedestrians and cyclists will be redirected around the existing creek crossing via the existing eastbound lanes. These changes will be in place for approximately 3 months.
Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road upgrade: upcoming works
Asphalt and linemarking work will continue in various areas throughout February and March. In order to minimise disruptions to motorists, some works at night will be required between 8pm and 5am. Some lane and shoulder closures may also be required during the day.
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.
Section B: construction completed
The department has appointed Abigroup Contractors to complete the upgrade of the Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway and the extension of the South East Busway.
Construction began in late 2012 and was completed in March 2014.
