Pacific Motorway M1 Watland Street to Sports Drive

Bielby Secures Watland Street to Sports Drive M1 Upgrade

Bielby Holdings, in a joint venture with JF Hull Holdings, is delighted to have secured the Pacific Motorway M1 Watland Street to Sports Drive Upgrade. Already on-site delivering the Sports drive to Gateway Motorway upgrade, this is our second package of works on the Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill Upgrade Project.

The project will see significant enhancements made to the M1, designed to improve traffic flow, safety and connections for bus and cycle commuters. Work will include widening the M1 up to four northbound lanes between the Watland Street overpass and the existing Sports Drive on-ramp,  a new M1 on-ramp at Lexington Road and widening Rochedale Road to three southbound lanes from the Rochedale Road off-ramp (Exit 19) to Springwood Road.

In addition, the South-East Busway will be extended to Springwood bus station and the V1 Veloway will be extended from Sports Drive to Watland Street.

Managing Director Adam Edwards, welcomed the project win “We are delighted to have secured a second package of works on the M1 Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill upgrade. It is a part of Queensland we know well having been involved in the original M1 Springwood South to Daisy Hill construction from 2009-12 and our current involvement in the upgrade of the M1 from Sports Drive to Gateway Motorway.”

“This is an exciting project for the region that will see significant investment made in improving road, bus and cycle infrastructure and introducing new smart motorway technologies that will reduce ‘stop-start’ travel on the motorway.”

“As a Queensland business, it is fantastic to continue our relationship with the Department of Transport and Main Roads and to deliver a key upgrade to one of the state’s most important pieces of infrastructure. We are also delighted to be able to help support businesses and employ locals as we undertake the project,” said Mr Edwards.
