Project info

The Oxenford Interchange (Exit 57) is located at the junction of the Pacific Motorway (M1), Hope Island Road and Tamborine Oxenford Road.

Since the interchange opened 20 years ago, Oxenford and the surrounding suburbs have experienced exponential growth with both commercial and retail precincts in the immediate vicinity.

The current configuration of the interchange experiences heavy congestion and queuing on the M1 shoulder to avoid through traffic. The Queensland Government has committed $25 million to upgrade the Oxenford Interchange and currently planning is progressing to design elements of the project.
