The Gateway Motorway is a primary connection between the Bruce highway, industrial/commercial precincts in northern Brisbane and the Australia Trade Coast (ATC) and export markets via Port of Brisbane and Brisbane Airport. The main features of the project are:
- Widening of 11.3km of motorway from four to six lanes between Nudgee in the south to the Deagon Deviation in the North (Bracken Ridge).
- Reconfiguring the Nudgee and Deagon interchanges.
- Widening the Deagon Deviation between Depot Road and Bracken Ridge Road to provide two lanes in each direction.
- Providing a shared use (pedestrian and cyclist) path from Nudgee to Bracken Ridge, along with some additional local active transport connections.
Expected benefits of this project include:
- supporting economic growth through improving the transport network
- improving accessibility to the ATC, Port of Brisbane and Brisbane Airport Project
The Australian Government will provide a contribution of $901.80 million, in partnership with the Queensland Government.
Project early works commenced in September 2014. Major construction commenced in February 2016 and is expected to be completed by late 2018.
