A new northbound bridge over Norris Creek on Mount Lindesay Highway in Queensland is now open, as part of the $75 million Mount Lindesay Highway Upgrade Program.

The section of the Mount Lindesay Highway between Stoney Camp Road and Chambers Flat Road at Munruben, which is part of the $75 million Mount Lindesay Highway Upgrade Program, is being upgraded.

As part of the upgrade, the highway section will be duplicated from to four lanes and will see safety barriers installed. A new southbound bridge will also be constructed to complement the now open northbound bridge.

The upgrade will aim to increase the capacity, efficiency and traffic flow of the connection while also providing a safer journey for motorists.

State Member for Logan Linus Power said the Mount Lindesay Highway was one of Queensland’s busiest highways.

“There are currently between 25,000 and 45,000 people using the Mount Lindesay Highway between Browns Plains and Jimboomba daily,” Power said.

“There is over $180 million invested in upgrades along the stretch as part of our 10-year strategic vision for the region.”

Other major works planned in the area include the $356 Logan and Gold Coast Faster Rail program which includes doubling the track capacity, 20km of new track, and station and signalling upgrades.

The $75 million Mount Lindesay Highway Stoney Camp Road to Chambers Flat Road upgrade is jointly funded on a 50:50 basis between the Australian and Queensland governments.

The highway upgrade is expected to be completed by the end of 2022, weather and conditions permitting.
