Pacific Motorway M1 Daisy Hill to Logan Motorway

We are undertaking a preliminary evaluation to investigate viable staging options for investment in the project that will meet the future traffic and transport needs of the M1 between Daisy Hill and the Logan Motorway (DH2LM).

This project will be the third stage of the M1 North upgrade program.

The M1 North upgrade program is being delivered in a 3-stage rolling program from north to south:


  • Improves safety
  • Increases traffic flow
  • Reduces travel time
  • Contributes to economy
  • Increases capacity
  • Improves network efficiency
  • Reduces peak hour congestion
  • Better road access
  • Improves flood immunity

Key features

The upgrade is expected to feature:

  • increased northbound M1 capacity from Daisy Hill to Loganholme 
  • consolidation of M1 entry and exit ramps 
  • smart motorways technologies.
