State Member for Logan Linus Power and Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey announced today that construction on the next section of four laning the Mount Lindesay Highway from Stoney Camp Road interchange through to Chambers Flat Road interchange would start construction in the first half of 2021.
The project is part of the State Government’s plan to invest in the Mount Lindesay Highway over ten years and is a jointly funded project with the Federal Government.
“This is the largest section of four lane construction to be built on the Mount Lindesay Highway, four times as long as the last section.” Linus Power said.
“It will mean there is plenty of room to overtake slower moving trucks and the divided four lane road will also mean a safer journey home.”
Minister Bailey said this project will greatly improve travel on the Mount Lindesay Highway.
“We have invested a total of $165 million in improving the Mount Lindesay Highway and this is the largest investment yet,” Minister Bailey said.
“Linus has been a strong advocate for his community and urged us to help create local jobs, and that is why this project will start in the first half of next year.”
The project builds upon the four lanes currently being constructed from Rosia Road and takes four lanes down to the Chambers Flat Road intersection, connecting to the North Maclean service lane and improved four lane intersection at Greenbank Road.
Construction is also continuing on the four lanes and new northbound bridge between Johanna Street and Camp Cable Road in Jimboomba.
