To mark an important milestone on the $190 million M1/M3 Gateway Merge project, a part of the Pacific Motorway Upgrade, major construction work on a new Underwood Road bridge in Queensland is set to commence, with piling works now underway.
Lendlease was awarded the contract to build the M1/M3 Gateway Merge project in October of last year. Works under this project include up to five southbound lanes on the Pacific Motorway between Eight Mile Plains and Rochedale South, relocating the existing bus entry from the Eight Mile Plains Bus Station onto the Pacific Motorway, replacing the Underwood Road bridge to new four lane overpass, and managing motorway technologies from Klumpp Road to Rochedale Road.
Other projects include $749 million upgrade between Eight Mile Plains and Daisy Hill, the $1.030 billion upgrade between Varsity Lakes and Tugun, and the $194.5 million upgrade between Mudgeeraba and Varsity Lakes.
Due for completion in mid-2020, the project is expected to support up to 131 jobs during construction.
