Section A – Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road upgrade (Broadwater Road to Gardner Road)
Widening Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road from 4 to 6 lanes 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.
This project is currently in the design phase. Construction tenders are expected to be awarded by late 2013 with works to begin in early 2014.
Pre-construction preparation works will commence mid September 2013 and will include:
- site vegetation clearing
- relocation of Telstra, Optus and Energex services to their new alignment next to the resumption boundary to avoid conflict with the road works.
The project is expected to be completed in late 2014 – early 2015, weather permitting.
Section B – Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway
The Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway is one of Queensland’s busiest on-ramps with an average of 30,000 vehicle movements per day.
Extending and upgrading the on-ramp alignment will improve safety and reliability for motorists allowing more distance and time to merge with through traffic.
South East Busway extension
The busway will be extended from the Eight Mile Plains busway station to School Road and includes provision for future extensions towards Springwood.
The extension of the busway will allow buses from Rochedale and Rochedale South to directly access the South East Busway network.
Construction for this project commenced in late 2012 with expected completion by mid-2014, weather permitting.
Transport and Main Roads is continuing to investigate delivery of future staged upgrades of the Gateway and Pacific motorways, and South East Busway to improve safety, connectivity and reliability to and from the network.
Upgrades and improvements will be undertaken on a priority needs basis and as future funding becomes available.
