The Logan Enhancement Project, a two-year, $512 million Transurban Queensland initiate to remove bottlenecks on the Logan Motorway, is now complete.
Works have delivered 15 kilometres of new lanes, unlocked some of the south east’s busiest motorway interchanges and provided new connections to the Gateway Motorway at Compton Road.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the project, which provided 1300 jobs during construction, would mean quicker trips and fewer traffic jams for cars and trucks.
“We know Queenslanders want to spend less time in traffic and more time at home with their families and friends, and that’s what projects like this do,” Ms. Palaszczuk said.
“This extra bridge at Wembley Road will fix the notorious jams and cut travel times for locals crossing the motorway between Browns Plains and Logan Central.”
Ms. Palaszczuk said the upgrade would also improve freight productivity and support local businesses and jobs.
“Berrinba has quickly established itself as an important southside freight hub,” Ms. Palaszczuk said.
“Those businesses need quick and convenient access for trucks to connect with major highways heading north and south of Brisbane, and that’s what this project has delivered.”
Transurban Queensland Group Executive Sue Johnson said the upgrade to the Logan and Gateway Extension motorways had made it the quicker, safer choice for motorists.
“Thanks to the project, motorists are getting 20 minutes back in their day by taking the Logan Motorway,” Ms. Johnson said.
“With roadworks now complete, speed limits are back to 100 kilometres an hour – there’s never been a better time to take the Logan Motorway.”
