Port of Brisbane Motorway open ahead of schedule

The multi-million dollar Port of Brisbane Motorway upgrade is open to traffic eight months ahead of schedule. Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson and member for Lytton Neil Symes commissioned the $385 million project, and thanked crews for completing the project much earlier than anticipated. A large section of the new motorway opened to motorists in September last year, and today marked the official completion of the whole upgrade. The BMD Seymour Whyte Joint Venture began construction of the upgrade in early 2011. The project has delivered a duplication of the existing three–kilometre, two-lane motorway, as well as a three-kilometre, four-lane extension and construction of six bridges. This upgrade will help to minimise traffic disruption and maintain smooth traffic flow for freight and local road users. ______________________________________________________________________________
