LNP promises to fix Gateway-Pacific Motorway bottleneck
QUEENSLAND's peak motoring body has welcomed plans to fix the Gateway-Pacific Motorway junction bottleneck.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said a re-elected Newman LNP Government would upgrade the Gateway-Pacific Motorway junction.
"The $170 million upgrade will include two additional southbound lanes at the merge, getting traffic flowing and drivers home to their families more quickly.
"There will also be enormous benefits for bus users as we will need to lengthen the existing busway - creating an extra 350 park 'n' ride spaces for passengers."
Member for Springwood John Grant said the project was a major priority for families in Logan and the southern suburbs of Brisbane.
Mr Emerson said the merge upgrade was just one of the congestion-busting projects under the LNP's Less time on better roads, more time with family plan and further projects would be announced across south east Queensland in the coming weeks.
The $80 million Sumners Road overpass, $105 million upgrade to the Boundary Road interchange, and the $74 million Exit 54 improvement will also be delivered under a re-elected Newman Government.
The RACQ's general manager for advocacy Paul Turner welcomed the announcements.
Mr Turner said the RACQ would be putting its case to the ALP today for extra road funding for Queensland.
