Pacific Motorway, Varsity Lakes, Queensland Get Directions

Pacific Highway – Mudgeeraba to Varsity Lakes

The M1 Pacific Motorway is the principal road link between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Currently, daily traffic volumes exceed 135,000 vehicles resulting in congestion and traffic incidents during peak hour. This upgrade would provide an important part of the national freight network improving the level of service for commercial vehicles.

It would improve the commute between the Gold Coast and Brisbane by increasing the lanes to eight between the Gateway Motorway and Smith Street, and to six lanes between Gaven and Tugun.

$280 million
