Our progress – Feb 2018
2 March 2018
The latest aerial drone footage is here – you will see plenty of changes as we get moving to upgrade your motorway.
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.

18 January 2018
On major construction projects like the Logan Enhancement Project, work crews often come across native fauna species that need to be safely relocated from work sites to appropriate new homes.
This relocation is always done by qualified professionals, either by our highly skilled environment team or fauna spotter/catchers, who have an extensive understanding of our local environment.
To-date, over 280 native animals have been safely relocated, including a Saw-Shelled Turtle, Krefft Turtle, Keelback Snakes and interestingly, mussels and prawns from areas within the project footprint, which include Scrubby Creek, unnamed waterways and eucalypti bushland ecosystems.
Many local residents would also be familiar with a white goose that would frequent the waterhole on Wembley Road near the Wembley Road Bridge. Rest assured that Gary the Goose was safely relocated to a new home in Beaudesert prior to construction commencing.
Transurban Queensland and CPB Contractors are committed to taking a sustainable approach to the construction of the Logan Enhancement Project to create the best outcomes for the environment, our neighbours and customers.
As part of this commitment, the project design includes numerous new fauna crossings to facilitate safe animal movements across the motorways.

It’s been a busy start to 2018, with construction ramping up all on aspects of the project. Our latest construction footage is now available.
Road resurfacing set to start
9 January 2018
Road resurfacing works on the Gateway Extension Motorway between Compton Road and Logan Road will commence in January 2018. The work will be undertaken each weekend from Friday 8pm to Monday 5am, and will take approximately nine months to complete. More information is available here.

The Logan Enhancement Project will shut down for the end-of-year holiday period from Friday 22 December 2017 and resume construction activities on Tuesday 2 January 2018.
The community relations team will be available from Monday 8 January 2018. For any urgent enquiries between the 22 December 2017 and 8 January 2018 please contact 1800 195 308.
From the entire project team, have a wonderful holiday season and please stay safe on the roads.
Team makes a difference this festive season
12 December 2017
The Transurban Queensland and CPB Contractors Logan Enhancement Project teams have rallied together to give those doing it tough some joy, hope and a reason to celebrate this festive season.
Transurban Queensland Project Director, Andrew Baker, said the teams filled 10 bags full of food to give to Queenslanders who would otherwise have very little this Christmas.
“During construction of the $512 million motorway upgrade project, we are committed to being a good neighbour by giving back to the local community,” Andrew said.
“We are proud to give back to such a worthy cause, and understand that Christmas isn’t always a happy time for some people.
“We hope the donated food brings some enjoyment this holiday season,” Andrew said.
