Project Description

The project involves the upgrade of the Yamanto and Amberley intersections with the Cunningham Highway, and construction of a new two-lane deviation off the highway connecting with the northern end of Amberley Road. In addition, a range of safety works will be undertaken along the route that could include safety barriers, channelised right turn intersection upgrades, wide centreline treatment to separate opposing traffic, and overtaking lanes.


Improved Connectivity and Capacity:

  • improved transport linkages and road capacity to facilitate major economic and defence-related developments
  • improved transport connectivity between residential and industrial developments
  • improved capacity on the Cunningham Highway to meet the needs of regional freight and commercial traffic movements 

Improved Safety Outcomes:

  • provide a roadway and intersection that comply with contemporary safety and design standards and meet community expectations and the needs of all road users.


The Australian Government has committed up to $170 million towards the project.
