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 10 minutes saved in the afternoon peak
  • 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 mid-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.
