Project Description

The Australian and Queensland governments jointly funded the $30 million Pacific Motorway Upgrade, Coomera Interchange project.

The upgrade included:

  • Construction of a link road between the northbound exit ramp (Exit 54) and Abraham Road;
  • Provision of traffic signals at the Link Road / Abraham Road intersection; and
  • Construction a left turn slip lane from Abraham Road to Days Road.


The Pacific Motorway Upgrade, Coomera Interchange project will improve safety and ease congestion. The project will reduce the level of traffic circulating around the western roundabout interchange thereby reducing the length of queues on the northbound exit ramp.


The Australian and Queensland governments each provided $455 million, a total of $910 million towards upgrading the Pacific Motorway between the Gateway Motorway and Tugun. Of this $910 million, this project was allocated $30 million. The Australian Government provided $15 million to the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.


Construction commenced in August 2009 and the project was completed on 11 September 2010.
