$65m highway upgrade to improve Queensland freight connections

The Queensland government has announced it will spend $65 million to transform the Sumners Road Interchange on the Centenary Highway to improve freight connections.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has said the upgrade would improve safety and cut travel times for drivers in Ipswich, Springfield and the surrounding Centenary suburbs.

“This upgrade, which will also create 50 jobs, will reduce congestion on the daily commute, and cut travel times for 5,500 heavy trucks that use this interchange daily, improving freight connections and supporting local businesses,” said Palaszczuk.

According to the Queensland government, works for the project are expected to commence within 12 months, following the completion of design and tenders for construction – construction of the upgraded interchange is then expected to take two years to complete, weather permitting.
