The Exit 49 interchange upgrade will deliver significant improvements in safety and traffic flow efficiency by keeping traffic moving through the improved interchange and thereby reducing queuing.
Rapid industrial and residential development in the northern Gold Coast area is adding pressure to already busy Pacific Motorway (M1) interchanges. In response to this, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is upgrading the Pimpama Interchange (Exit 49).
The project will deliver a number of safety benefits to motorists using the M1 and the surrounding local road network, including Attenborough Boulevard, Yawalpah Road, Rifle Range Road, Waverley Drive and Bull Road. The upgrade will improve traffic flow and increase efficiency at the interchange and improve the reliability of access conditions for freight movements and transit times for all motorway users.
Improvements will be achieved by including a new bridge across the M1 with additional lanes, removal of existing roundabouts and installation of traffic signals, relocation of on-ramps and off-ramps away from the main interchange with signalised intersections that work in coordination with the rest of the interchange.
This project is jointly funded by the Queensland Government and the Australian Government (AusGov Infrastructure).
Community consultation on the preliminary design will be undertaken in mid-2021. Register your interest in receiving updates by emailing the project team.
