Project feedback shapes design changes

Logan Enhancement Project
23 November 2016

Thank you to the more than 600 stakeholders and community members that provided feedback on the Logan Enhancement Project initial concept design throughout the detailed proposal phase.

The following key changes to the design have been directly shaped by stakeholder and community feedback:

  • replacing the uncontrolled right-hand turn from Beaudesert Road southbound to the Logan Motorway westbound with a free-flowing underpass, eliminating the need for traffic signals
  • replacing the existing Mt Lindesay Highway northbound to Logan Motorway eastbound cloverleaf ramp arrangement with a free-flowing connecting ramp which removes up to 40% of traffic prior to entering the interchange – this greatly improves the through northern movement along Mt Lindesay Highway / Beaudesert Road.
  • extending the scope at Wembley Road to include relocating both the Logan Motorway eastbound and westbound on and off-ramps, replacing the existing bridge over the Logan Motorway and upgrading Wembley Road from Greenfern Drive to Pagewood Street to provide four lanes (two through lanes in each direction)
  • providing numerous initiatives that will significantly improve environmental outcomes through the project, including new fauna crossings.

The final concept design will deliver greater benefits than the original concept design, at a minor increase to the original project cost. More detail about the final concept design is available here.

New community complex at Heathwood

Logan Enhancement Project

To celebrate the Logan Enhancement Project and to create a lasting legacy for the community, Transurban Queensland will donate up to $2 million to create a community complex adjacent to the Logan Motorway at Heathwood. We will work with various stakeholders, including elected representatives and community groups, to ensure the ultimate use of the site provides the best outcome.

This initiative forms part of Transurban Queensland’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we operate. More information about this initiative will be available in 2017.

New proposal set to reduce congestion on the Logan Motorway

Logan Motorway
28 October 2015

Congestion black spots on the Logan Motorway and Gateway Extension could be eliminated following the Queensland Government’s decision to progress Transurban Queensland’s proposal to deliver vital upgrades.

The proposed $450m project includes upgrades to congested interchanges at Beaudesert Road/Mt Lindesay Highway and Wembley Road, widening parts of the Gateway Extension Motorway and constructing new south-facing ramps at Compton Road.

While the announcement does not commit the parties to the project, Transurban Queensland will now partner with the State Government to develop a final business case, select a preferred contractor as well as undertaking community and stakeholder engagement.

Transurban Queensland Group General Manager Wes Ballantine said the significant infrastructure project would deliver a safer, more efficient motorway and drive jobs and economic growth for Queensland.

“The project proposal includes interchange upgrades at key congestion and crash hot spots on the Logan Motorway, widening parts of the Gateway Extension Motorway and constructing new south-facing ramps at Compton Road,” Mr Ballantine said.

“The project will deliver a safer and more efficient motorway network by relieving local traffic congestion, reducing travel times and enhancing connectivity with other major road networks,” he said.

“The project will generate more than $1.2 billion in economic benefits for Queenslanders and support more than 1,300 jobs throughout the life of the project.”

In just over a decade traffic volumes on the Logan Motorway have doubled with an 800% increase in commercial vehicles, largely due to the strong population and employment growth to the south-west of Brisbane.

“There is a compelling need for action to keep traffic moving in this region and to enhance safety for motorists through better designed roads,” Mr Ballantine said.

“We will work with the Queensland Government to identify and investigate possible funding solutions. The proposal does not envisage any changes to car tolls,” he said.

The proposed scope for the project has been released. The project is expected to be delivered with no private land acquisition, no new land disturbance and with the potential to rehabilitate and give back elements of the existing corridor for community use.

Subject to receiving final government approval, construction is expected to begin in 2016 and be completed by early 2019.
