Project info

The department has upgraded the Boundary Road interchange on the Bruce Highway at Narangba.

The interchange upgrade provides improved safety, easing congestion and caters for future traffic volumes.

The contract to construct the project was awarded to BMD Constructions in March 2016.

Major construction works started in May 2016 and the project was completed 6 months ahead of schedule in September 2017. 

Benefits of the upgrade include:

  • a new 6-lane bridge over the highway to increase capacity and ease congestion 
  • longer on and off-ramps to improve safety for motorists entering and exiting the highway 
  • improved bridge clearance to avoid the need for high loads detouring on other roads 
  • a new shared user path increasing safety for pedestrians and cyclists. 

The new bridge has been constructed north of the former overpass and opened to traffic in April 2017. The new bridge enables motorists to use 4 through-lanes on Boundary Road, together with dedicated slip lanes feeding the northbound and southbound on-ramps.
