The first stage of the South East Busway extension was completed in March 2014. This section is being delivered as part of works to extend the Gateway Motorway southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Motorway.
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.

The department is continuing to investigate the 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.
Initial planning for the busway extension from Eight Mile Plains to Springwood was undertaken as part of the Pacific Motorway Upgrade (Gateway to Logan Motorway) in 2006-07. Since then, the department has refined design options and selected a preferred location for the extension based on community and stakeholder feedback. Refer map below.
