A joint venture have been awarded the contract for $75 million worth of works on the Mount Lindesay Highway.
Construction has now begun and the HullSee Joint Venture, comprising J.F. Hull Holdings and SEE Civil, will widen the highway from two to four lanes and build new north and southbound bridges across Norris Creek. They will also install safety upgrades and improve fauna connectivity and protection in the area.
Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport and Federal Member for Wright, the Hon Scott Buchholz MP, said the Morrison Government was delivering a more reliable road network through life-saving treatments.
“As a former transport operator, I know first-hand that any upgrade, no matter how big or small, is critical to ensuring a quicker and safer journey for motorists,” Buchholz said.
“My residents from Beaudesert to Greenbank and everywhere in between will welcome this congestion busting upgrade on the Mount Lindesay Highway.”
He said the project is part of the $4 billion nationwide investment through the Urban Congestion Fund.
State Member for Logan, Mr Linus Power MP, said the highway is a critical connection for thousands of families in the growing region, and that the upgrade would make the trip quicker for people travelling between Jimboomba, Logan and Brisbane, as well as those who regularly used the Stoney Camp Road and Chambers Flat Road interchanges.
“Upgrading the capacity and safety on the through this stretch delivers massive benefits for our community’s families and tradies, and will provide a critical shot in the arm for our region’s recovering economy.”
This project is being jointly funded by the Queensland and Federal Governments on a 50:50 basis.
