M1 Pacific Motorway – Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill
Building Queensland developed a detailed business case for the 16-kilometre stretch of the M1 Pacific Motorway between Eight Mile Plains and Daisy Hill. Working in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads, Building Queensland investigated widening of the motorway from six to eight lanes to align with the motorway standards upstream and downstream of the project location. In addition, a 6.6-kilometre dedicated bus lane and 7.5-kilometre bike and shared pathway incorporating a grade-separated cycleway crossing of Logan Road were also investigated.
The detailed business case was endorsed by the Building Queensland Board in Q3 2018.All Completed Business Cases
