Construction Has Started On Boundary Road

Construction on Boundary Road in North Lakes has begun! According to Luke Howarth MP, The boundary Road congestion around Costco at North Lakes was causing huge commuter delays and frustration.

“There’s a lot of congestion at peak times with so many motorists using the existing two-lane bridge to cross, enter or exit the Bruce Highway,” he said.

“I’ve been listening to locals and effectively campaigning for an upgrade to Boundary Road since my election. This is about efficiency and productivity – allowing locals to get to work faster and home sooner and making sure the trucks that deliver goods to and from our local businesses can travel smoothly”.

According to Mr Roy, last year it seemed like the State Labour government were going to withdraw from supporting the project. That is when Mr Howarth and Mr Roy launched a “Just Build it” campaign. The State LNP “pledged the balance of Fund to ensure this incredibly important piece of infrastructure was built” Mr Roy said.

“However, after the election, and despite my writing to the new Premier seeking her assurances on the future of the Boundary Road upgrade, the Labor state government would give me no such commitment. So Luke and I launched our campaign, rallying grassroots support from our communities to call on Labor to just build it”.

“We have now reached the starting line – we have begun to build the new Boundary Road overpass – only because together, our local communities helped get those state funds put back on the table. We have achieved a great outcome.”

The Boundary Road upgrade will be completed in 2018 and the six lane overpass will replace the existing two-lane bridge which links North Lakes with Narangba/ Dakabin.
