Following the opening of the new northbound lanes on the M1, the Gateway Motorway northbound is becoming heavily congested with motorists now queuing back on to the new M1 lanes between Sports Drive and the Gateway Motorway off-ramps at Eight Mile Plains.
Motorists often choose to use local roads as a result, seeking to travel north through Springwood and Rochedale South, on into Rochedale, to access the Gateway northbound, beyond the merge, creating safety problems in our neighbourhood.
We are calling on Transurban, the operator of the Gateway Motorway to:
- Upgrade the Gateway Motorway
- Alleviate congestion on the M1
- Make local roads safer
