Consultation has begun on the business case for M1 upgrades between Daisy Hill and the Logan Motorway in the coming weeks.
Member for Springwood, Mick de Brenni, said his community has welcomed planning starting on the next stages of the South East Busway Extension.
“We’ve already delivered the M1/Gateway merge, extra lanes, and are in progress on the busway to Springwood and now we’re focusing in on the missing link to the Logan Motorway.
“I think once you start a job, it’s important to get it finished, so I thank the Transport and Main Roads Minister for commencing consultation to ensure we get the next stage done right.
“This important work keeps our community moving forward and is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s plan for economic recovery through local job creation.”
Member for Waterford, Shannon Fentiman, said that the Palaszczuk Government was getting on with the job and building vital infrastructure in Logan.
“It’s great to see that not only are we delivering $2.3 billion worth of upgrades to the M1 we are also delivering more jobs for your young apprentices and trainees during construction,” Ms Fentiman said.
“These upgrades will ensure our Logan community can get to where they’re going, faster and safer.
“This is all about keeping up with our growing community and investing in our State’s economic recovery.”
Member for Macalister, Melissa McMahon, said she was pleased to see community consultation getting underway on this important plan which would see the busway being extended all the way to Loganholme when constructed.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to have their say on what the M1 should look like between Logan Road and Loganlea Road.
“Your local knowledge is crucial to making sure we get the upgrades we need to bust congestion now and into the future,” she said.
Consultation on the first stage of the Daisy Hill to Logan Motorway (Logan Rd to Loganlea Rd) started on 31 August and will run to 18 September.
