We operate six roads in Brisbane and we have two major projects on the go: Gateway Upgrade North and Logan Enhancement.
 

AirportlinkM7

The AirportlinkM7 is a 6.7 kilometre twin tunnel in Brisbane’s northern suburbs. The road has six lanes, three outbound and three inbound.

This road connects the Clem7 and Legacy Way tunnels (via the Inner City Bypass) to Brisbane Airport and the Australia TradeCoast precinct.

When you travel on AirportlinkM7, you can avoid up to 14 sets of traffic lights and reduce your travel time by up to 88 per cent.

The road’s world-class safety features include:

  • variable speed and message signs
  • advanced fire safety systems
  • cameras that automatically detect traffic flow variations

Completion date

AirportlinkM7 opened to traffic in July 2012.

Ownership

Transurban Queensland bought this road in March 2016. It is 62.5 per cent Transurban owned and is under concession until 2053.

Clem7

The Clem7 is a 6.8 kilometre road and tunnel connecting Brisbane's inner north with the southern and eastern suburbs, and bypassing the central city.

Clem7’s 4.8 kilometre twin-tunnel travels under the Brisbane River and links with AirportlinkM7.

Motorists travelling on the Clem7 avoid up to 24 sets of traffic lights – it’s safer, quicker and more reliable than alternative routes.

Completion date

Clem7 opened to traffic in March 2010.

Ownership

Transurban Queensland bought this road in July 2014. It is 62.5 per cent Transurban owned and is under concession until 2051.

Gateway Upgrade North

We are making significant upgrades to the Gateway Motorway between Nudgee and Bracken Ridge, a section of road now carrying more than 83,000 vehicles a day.

This work is being delivered on behalf of Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads. Lendlease Engineering Pty Ltd is designing and constructing the project.

The project includes:

  • widening the Gateway Motorway from four to six lanes from Nudgee to Deagon, with capacity for future expansion to eight lanes
  • reconfiguring, widening and improving interchanges, on and off ramps, and road surfaces
  • building an off-road shared cycling and walking path
  • installing intelligent transport systems such as variable speed limit signage, variable messaging signs, traffic monitoring cameras, and ramp metering
  • building new noise barriers and upgrading existing barriers

The Gateway Upgrade North has been awarded an ‘Excellent’ Design Rating by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.

Benefits

Once completed, the Gateway Upgrade North project will improve travel times and safety for drivers.

Timing and cost

Work on the $1.143 billion Gateway Upgrade North started in February 2016 and is set for completion in late 2018.

The Australian Government has committed up to $914.18 million to the project; the Queensland Government has committed $228.54 million.

Logan Enhancement Project

The Logan Enhancement Project is upgrading parts of the Logan and Gateway Extension motorways. 

Project work includes:

  • upgrades to key interchanges
  • new access ramps
  • road widening
  • new cycling and walking paths
  • better protection and new habitat for wildlife

The project has been awarded an ‘Excellent’ Design Rating by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.

Benefits

The Logan Enhancement Project is creating more than 1,300 direct construction jobs and will deliver benefits to the economy, community, industry and environment, including:

  • enhanced safety – up to 59 per cent reduction in accidents caused by merging, weaving and stop-starting
  • travel-time-savings – up to 90 per cent reduction in travel times
  • reliability – more consistent journey times
  • enhanced connectivity via new south-facing ramps

Timing and cost

Detailed design started in early 2017 and construction began in June 2017. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2019.

This project is being delivered at no cost to the Queensland Government. Transurban Queensland is financing 100 per cent of the project’s $512 million cost.
