Nothing is more important than your safety. We would like to understand your views on speed limits through roadwork zones – please take this short, three-question survey.

 

Giving back

25 May 2018

We recently donated two GoPros to the students of Pallara State School, for use in their Environmental Program. The students will use the cameras to monitor glider boxes installed in the bushland at the rear of the school. Great initiative that we’re happy to support.

Southern Wembley Road bridge takes shape

3 May 2018

Work on the new two-lane southern Wembley Road bridge over the Logan Motorway is starting to take shape. Last month we installed 14 Super-T girders for the structure. In mid this year traffic will switch over to this new bridge, and work will begin to demolish the existing bridge. The new two-lane northern bridge will then be constructed.

The two new, two-lane bridges will form part of the upgraded Wembley Road, which is being widened to four-lanes between Pagewood Street and Greenfern Drive, as a result of the project.

 

Getting on with the job…

Construction update

12 February 2018

Construction has commenced on the new free-flowing underpass from Beaudesert Road southbound to the Logan Motorway westbound, being delivered as part of Transurban Queensland’s $512 million Logan Enhancement Project.

“This new underpass will take approximately 10 months to construct and once complete, will provide a safer free-flowing movement for motorists – it’s a great outcome for the local community,” Transurban Queensland Group Executive Sue Johnson said.

“The construction required to upgrade the interchange is incredibly complex and in order to build the new underpass, the current right turn will be temporarily closed from Monday 5 February 2018, replaced with a new underpass opening later this year.

“With the temporary closure of the current right-hand turn, motorists wishing to travel onto the Logan Motorway towards Ipswich will continue through the interchange onto Mt Lindesay Highway, detour via the Brown Plains exit and complete a U-turn manoeuvre under the Johnson Road interchange, before travelling north on Mt Lindesay Highway, exiting onto the Logan Motorway westbound.

“Once complete, the new interchange will include an overpass for motorists travelling northbound on Mt Lindesay Highway to access the Logan Motorway eastbound,” she said.

Transurban Queensland Project Manager, Andrew Baker, said it was great to see work on the project progressing.
“The project design, including improvements to the Logan Motorway/Mt Lindesay Highway/Beaudesert Road interchange, was directly shaped by community feedback,” Mr Baker said.

“The upgraded interchange will feature nine new bridges, two new fauna crossings and nine new ramps.
“Once completed, the upgraded interchange will improve safety by eliminating the weaving and merging that currently exists. And with about 40% of traffic bypassing the interchange with the new overpass, it will provide significant capacity, efficiency and travel time improvements on this section of the motorway.

“During construction, we ask that people driving through the work sites are mindful of the changed traffic conditions, and obey the reduced speed limits and other signage for the safety of road workers and other road users.

“I encourage the community to keep up-to-date on construction progress and related traffic changes by subscribing to receive project updates at loganenhancementproject.com.au, dropping into the Visitor Information Centre or liking the project on Facebook (Facebook.com/LoganEP),” Mr Baker said.

Construction milestone achieved

2 February 2018

On 27 January 2018, a major construction milestone was achieved with the first bridge girder installed on the project.

In total, five bridge girders were installed as part of the new Beaudesert Road southbound on-ramp to the Logan Motorway eastbound.

It took a 500 tonne crane to lift and install the girders, each weighing 55 tonnes and measuring 1.5 metres high and 35 metres long.

In total there are nine new bridges to be built as part of the upgrade to the Logan Motorway/Beaudesert Road/Mt Lindesay Highway interchange.
