Ipswich Motorway, Darra to Rocklea Upgrade Stage 1

The Ipswich Motorway is the principal corridor between Ipswich and Brisbane and connects the Warrego Highway, Cunningham Highway, Logan Motorway and Centenary Highway to the Brisbane traffic network and Port of Brisbane. The upgrade to this section of the Ipswich Motorway will reduce traffic congestion on this section of the motorway and improve travel times for motorway users between Brisbane and Ipswich particularly at peak times.

The motorway works will include an upgrade to six lanes between the Centenary Motorway at Darra and the Granard Road interchange at Rocklea as well as improvements to a number of interchanges including the Oxley Road interchange. This section of the motorway is proposed to be delivered in stages with Stage 1 ($558m) including upgrade of the motorway to three lanes (between Oxley Road and Suscatand Street) eastbound and westbound, northern service road across Oxley Creek, ramp rationalisation and smarter motorway treatments for the entire seven kilometre Darra to Rocklea section.
