Works to upgrade the Yatala South Interchange (Exit 41) in Queensland have now wrapped up.

The $82 million project has provided improvements to both safety and traffic flow through the connection. To increase capacity and improve network efficiency, a new bridge was built over the M1, and the roundabouts on both sides of the interchange were upgraded to traffic signals.

The on-ramps and off-ramps have been realigned and lengthened to improve safety by reducing queuing back onto the M1. More than 130,000 motorists use this connection daily.
