Project Description

The project involves the upgrade of the Boundary Road Interchange approximately 30km north of the Brisbane CBD and will include a new six lane, four span concrete bridge over the Bruce Highway.


This project is expected to improve peak period operations and reduce delays and queuing currently being experienced at the Interchange.  The improvements will provide a reduction in travel time, improving road user safety by reducing congestion-related accidents.

Additional benefits of the upgrade include:

  • a new six-lane bridge over the highway to increase capacity and ease congestion;
  • longer on and off-ramps to improve safety for motorists entering and exiting the highway;
  • improved bridge clearance to avoid the need for high loads detouring on other roads;
  • a new shared user path increasing safety for pedestrians and cyclists; and 
  • upgraded interchange will accommodate future 8-laning of the Bruce Highway.


The Australian Government has committed up to $80.3 million towards the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government with the project being delivered under budget.


The project commenced construction in May 2016 and was completed in September 2017.
