Designs have been released for the southern section of the Coomera Connector in Queensland.
The Coomera Connector is South East Queensland’s largest road infrastructure project, with the Stage One package of works (North, Central and South) featuring 16 kilometres of new motorway between Coomera and Nerang.
The Coomera Connector (formerly known as the Intra Regional Transport Corridor) will be a key link in an expanded road transport network between Loganholme and the Gold Coast, where residential and business communities are growing rapidly.
A joint 2015 study between TMR and City of Gold Coast confirmed the corridor as a future strategic transport link that will relieve traffic congestion on the M1 and surrounding local roads.

- EOI’s called for Tonkin Highway extension
- LXRP’s fast-tracked for Melton
Stage One South connects from the Smith Street Motorway to a new interchange at Southport-Nerang Road, before crossing the Nerang River and finishing at a new intersection with Nerang-Broadbeach Road.
Based on previous community feedback, design changes have been made at the southern end of Nerang.
The Australian and Queensland governments have committed $2.16 billion on a 50:50 basis to plan and build Coomera Connector Stage One between Coomera and Nerang. Major construction on this section is expected to start in late 2024.
