This project widened the Ipswich Motorway to six lanes between Dinmore and the Ipswich/Logan Motorway interchange at Goodna - a length of approximately 8 km. The upgrade has improved access to rail stations, provided improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and provided service roads to remove local trips from the motorway.
The project has increased safety for users, improved transport efficiency and reduced congestion. The upgrade has addressed safety issues by providing an improved alignment and by separating local and long distance traffic through the removal of some access ramps and the addition of service roads.
The Australian Government provided $1.57 billion to the project.
Construction commenced in June 2009 and was completed May 2012, with the upgraded and widened Motorway fully opened to traffic six months ahead of schedule.
