The Gateway Motorway North between Nudgee and Deagon is a four-lane motorway providing a critical transport corridor for more than 83,000 vehicles each day. It also services the Brisbane Airport, Port of Brisbane and the Australia TradeCoast precinct. This section of the Gateway Motorway is already highly congested and is facing demands from:
- south-east Queensland population growth
- continued expansion of the Australia TradeCoast.
The $1.143 billion Gateway Upgrade North project (Nudgee to Bracken Ridge) is being jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments and will not only reduce this congestion but improve safety and increase efficiency of the motorway network.
The Gateway Upgrade North project (Nudgee to Bracken Ridge) is being jointly funded by the federal and state governments and includes:
- widening the motorway from four to six lanes from Nudgee to Deagon
- reconfiguring the Nudgee interchange including a new Nudgee Road overpass
- widening the Deagon Deviation between Depot Road and Bracken Ridge Road to provide two lanes in each direction
- modifications to the Bicentennial Road interchange including extended on and off-ramps
- construction of an off-road cycle/pedestrian facility
- Intelligent Transport Systems including:
- variable speed limit signage
- variable messaging signs
- traffic monitoring cameras
- ramp metering (which involves traffic signals to help control the flow of traffic entering the motorway and relieve congestion).
