Project Description

The project involves widening 11.3km of the Gateway Motorway from four to six lanes between Nudgee and Bracken Ridge, upgrading the Nudgee Interchange and widening the Deagon Deviation to two lanes in each direction. The project also includes the construction of off-road cycle/pedestrian facilities and Intelligent Transport Systems.


Extra lanes on the Gateway Motorway and Deagon Deviation will reduce congestion and upgrading the Nudgee Interchange will improve access, traffic flow and driver safety on and off the motorway in each direction. The project will support economic growth by improving the transport network, including delivering improved access to the Australian TradeCoast (ATC), Port of Brisbane and the Brisbane Airport.


The Australian Government has committed $914.18 million to the Gateway Upgrade North project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.


An early works package involving earthworks, drainage and some service relocations to prepare for major works commenced in September 2014. Major construction works commenced in February 2016 with completion expected in late 2018, weather permitting.
