Logan Motorway Corridor Strategy
The Logan Motorway Corridor Strategy is a long term plan to address the area’s future growth in industrial, commercial and residential development. This plan incorporates state government transport planning, integrated with local government land use planning.
The Logan Motorway between the Ipswich Motorway and the Pacific Motorway and the Gateway Motorway Extension between the Logan Motorway and the Pacific Motorway.
The Logan Motorway Corridor Strategy will improve South East Queensland and local:
- road network efficiency
- South Coast Region
The Logan Motorway is currently exceeding its planned capacity with up to 60,000 vehicles per day traversing the 30 kilometre route between the Ipswich Motorway and Pacific Motorway. The Logan Motorway Corridor Strategy will be designed to meet increased usage and ensure operational efficiency and safety on major motorways, arterial and local roads.
Studies being undertaken to meet the identified regional demands of 2031 as outlined in the draft Connecting SEQ 2031, the South East Queensland Regional Plan (SEQRP) and SEQ Infrastructure Plan and Program (SEQIPP) include:
- future upgrades to the Motorway
- a review of existing interchanges
- the need for new interchanges
- links to meet the planned developments at Yarrabilba, Flagstone and Bromelton — increasing freight
- movements to the Port of Brisbane
- future public transport routes, pedestrian and cycle links and facilities
- preservation of future road corridors.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is working in partnership with Logan City Council, Brisbane City Council and Ipswich City Council to achieve a ‘One Network Plan’ for the area.
The ‘One Network Plan’ that will be used to coordinate future upgrades of the Motorway, and plan for parallel routes and associated links.
This partnership between state and local government aims to optimise the use of the existing Logan Motorway — a key regional transport link — and the feeder arterial roads and local road network.
