Project milestone

Posted on May 31st, 2018

The first new off-ramp constructed as part of Transurban Queensland’s $512 million Logan Enhancement Project opened to traffic over the weekend.

Transurban Queensland Group Executive, Sue Johnson, said the opening of the Logan Motorway westbound off-ramp to Mt Lindesay Highway southbound was a great milestone for the project.

“I have been really impressed with the project’s pace since major construction started in mid-2017, and it’s great to see the benefits starting to be realised with the opening of this new off-ramp,” Ms Johnson said.

“The project is delivering more than just roads. In July, work will start on a new dedicated 2km shared bike and pedestrian path over the Logan Motorway at the Mt Lindesay Highway and Beaudesert Road interchange, providing an important connection between Illaweena Street in the north to Acacia Street in the south.

“Delivering this missing link between two existing shared paths is another terrific example of how the Logan Enhancement Project benefits all road users.”

Transurban Queensland General Manager – Delivery, Ian Sinclair, said despite a wet first quarter of the year, construction was pushing ahead.

“The community will soon start seeing several new ramps opening to traffic, including the Mt Lindesay Highway northbound on-ramp to the Logan Motorway westbound, and the new Logan Motorway eastbound on-ramp from Beaudesert Road southbound,” Mr Sinclair said.

“Construction is about 30% of the way there, with more than 1,000,000 construction hours worked to date. On average, 600 people sign on to work each day, dedicated to getting on with the job of upgrading our network to provide better roads for our customers.”
