New Compton Road ramps
New south facing ramps
The current interchange
Compton Road currently has north-facing on and off-ramps, but none on the southern side. This prevents access to the Gateway Extension Motorway to and from Compton Road from the south.
Motorists wanting to access Compton Road from the south use local roads such as Wembley Road and Beaudesert Road, adding to the existing congestion along these routes.
South-facing on and off-ramps will be installed along the Gateway Extension Motorway to match the existing north-facing ramps. This will provide complete connectivity from the Gateway Extension Motorway to Compton Road, increasing direct access opportunities from the south and reducing traffic on Wembley Road and Beaudesert Road.
The bridge at Compton Road will be widened and will also accommodate cyclists and pedestrians. Additional turning lanes will be provided on the Compton Road bridge to accommodate the south-facing ramps. Existing signalised intersections will be upgraded to accommodate the new ramp connections.
