Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said in a statement that since the release of the preferred plan in 2013, an interactive tender process had produced innovative solutions to reduce congestion and improve safety on one of the state’s busiest motorways.

“The project will support more than 1,000 direct jobs during its lifespan, continuing the Coalition Government’s commitment to delivering national prosperity and a stronger national transport network,” said Mr. Truss.

Queensland Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports Mark Bailey said in a statement that motorists and the wider community will benefit from the increased capacity and safety upgrades.

“Major construction is expected to start early next year, and will involve widening an 11.3-kilometre section from four to six lanes between Nudgee and Bracken Ridge, upgrading the Nudgee Road interchange and widening the Deagon Deviation to two lanes in both directions,” he said.

The Australian Government has committed up to $929.6 million and the Queensland Government $232.4 million to the Gateway Upgrade North project.

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads and Transurban Queensland will jointly manage the delivery of the project.

Lend Lease Engineering will design and construct the project.
