This project is well overdue and is going to be fantastic upon completion. Be good to get this road up to real freeway status around the airport. Now all they have to do is stop the bit to the North from getting potholes in it every 2 months!!

The old section will remain.


If anything I am very curious to see how or what they do with the Airport Link connection. Surely they will have to put an underpass under that set of traffic lights so that it is a not stop connection....

With the new deviation, will the existing motorway on the north side be torn up and redeveloped? Surely it would happen as it would be essentially redundant.

The old MWY stays. This will feed traffic to and from Kingsford Smith Drive, East-West Aterial (in the future the Airport link) and Toombul Road.

in the video i didnt see a southbound access to the new bridge from the existing mwy allignment. this area is such a grey area of the project as no one from the public actually knows wats going to happen.

Watch it again.
The northbound split is on the video. 3 lanes on existing alignment and 3 lanes on the new. I presume that would be the same for the southbound merge.

Im pretty sure two of those projects have been conceived by the Lord Mayor and financed to some extent.
Also, indirectly most of state government revenue comes from the Federal Government (i.e. QLDs large share of GST revenue vs the (low) contributions QLD makes to company profits and (low contribution to total) GST expenditure).

Watch carefully, the southbound section goes underneath the new north and south sections to merge on the right side about 250m before the bridge.

Yeah sorry, the Airport link and the Gateway upgrade is funded partly by the state gov.

Neither do I. It's too long a stretch, without any huge demand right now. Maybe a second link to Bribie Island, but not all the way to Caloundra.
