The Boundary Road upgrade has reached a key milestone this week as the installation of concrete girders for the new Boundary Road overpass began.
The installation of the bridge girders will unlock a major congestion point and will improve safety for all motorists.
“This project will help relieve congestion for the 20,000 vehicles using the interchange on a daily basis. Piling for the new six-lane bridge has been completed and the first asphalt layers are already starting to be laid on the new ramp alignments,” said Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth.
Weather and construction conditions permitting, girder installation work will continue up until the Christmas break and should be complete in January. Detours and diversions will be in place for motorists at night while work is undertaken and delays may be experienced. Traffic control and signage will be in place to help motorists navigate detour and diversion routes.
“We ask that local motorists use routes other than Boundary Road where possible during the works, and that motorists on the Bruce Highway take care when travelling through the construction area. I appreciate the impacts for the local community and thank everyone for their patience and cooperation,” said State Member for Murrumba Chris Whiting.
The project is estimated to support approximately 100 jobs during the construction period and is on track for completion by mid- 2018.
