Every day thousands of families from our neighbourhood use sections of the M1 and the M1/M3 Gateway Merge is currently operating over maximum capacity - you know how bad it can get!
The Palaszczuk Government is deliveing this project to deliver faster travel times, safety and reduce congestion - getting you back home safer and faster.
Practically this means you will see up to 5 southbound lanes on the Pacific Motorway between Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale South; replacement of the Underwood Road bridge to a new 4 lane overpass; the relocation of the existing bus entry from the Eight Mile Plains Bus Station onto the Pacific Motorway; managed motorway technologies from Klumpp Road to Rochedale Road - and it can be expected to be delivered by mid-2020.
I am doing regular video updates on Facebook to bring the M1 construction progress your homes - readily accessible, and there for you to see as it happens.
