Off-ramp upgrade on track

Work is now well underway on the widening of the Exit 32 off-ramp, which connects the Centenary Motorway southbound to the Springfield Greenbank Arterial.

The existing off-ramp lanes will be doubled from two to four lanes, and the current roundabout will be upgraded into a major intersection.

$6.5 million in has been committed by the Queensland Government for this project.

Exit 32 runs alongside the smaller entry-exit lanes of the Springfield Central Park ‘n’ Ride, which opened last year.

The finished off-ramp intersection will support drivers heading left or right along the Springfield Greenbank Arterial (SGA).

It will also facilitate safer and easier crossing onto Main Street towards Orion shopping centre.

Jordan MP Charis Mullen said she was pleased with the progress Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has made so far.

“TMR has confirmed the exit will widen from two lanes to four lanes,” Ms Mullen said on Facebook.

“This will align with the duplication of the SGA.”

She also confirmed plans to replace the roundabout with a signalised intersection.

Ms Mullen said she will share final traffic engineering designs once they have been approved for public release.

Assuaging concerns

“In the meantime, I wish to thank everyone for their patience as there are a lot of roadworks happening at the moment with the upgrades of the Centenary Motorway, Springfield Parkway, and the SGA.”

Ms Mullen also addressed a related query about the potential for a pedestrian overpass to connect the Park n Ride with the train station.

“It would be too close to the current Centenary Highway overpass, and would also impact planned duplication of the highway,” she said.

“There are sound engineering reasons for these decisions.”
