Logan Motorway upgrade officially opened

Posted on August 19th, 2019

Transurban Queensland’s $512 million Logan Enhancement Project will be completed within a week, with the newly upgraded sections of the Logan and Gateway Extension motorways officially opened today.

Transurban Queensland Group Executive, Sue Johnson, said the Logan Enhancement Project responded to a clear call for action.

“This significant motorway upgrade was needed to maintain freight productivity and to get people where they want to go safely and quickly,” Ms Johnson said.

“The project has provided 15km of new lanes and unlocked two of the south east’s busiest motorway interchanges.

“The project, which was fully financed and delivered by Transurban Queensland, is a great example of the State Government working with industry to deliver benefits for the community,” Ms Johnson said.

Project Director, Andy Richardson, said the upgrade to the Logan and Gateway Extension motorways had made it the quicker, safer choice for the 170,000 motorists that use them each day.

“Thanks to the project, motorists are now getting 20 minutes back in their day by taking the Logan Motorway,” Mr Richardson said.

“With the roadworks set to be completed within a week, speed limits will return to 100km/hr – there’s never been a better time to take the Logan Motorway.”
