This project will upgrade the section of the Pacific Motorway between Varsity Lakes to Tugun which may include six laneing of both the north and southbound lanes, a direct northbound off-ramp from the M1 to Southport – Burleigh Road, ramp upgrades with ramp controls, auxiliary lanes, pavement reconstruction works, and better active transport connectivity between centres.
It is expected this commitment will deliver the following benefits:
- additional lanes and other capacity improvements to reduce congestion
- shorter travel times for high volumes of freight, commuter, commercial, and tourist traffic
- potential busway extensions to improve public transport connectivity
The Australian Government has committed $1 billion towards two projects along the Pacific Motorway - between Varsity Lakes and Tugun and between Eight Mile Plains and Daisy Hill.
