Published at : 24 Oct 2020
Super: Getting you home sooner
V/O (to 22 second transition): The Queensland and Federal Governments are upgrading the Pacific Motorway – or M1 - between Mudgeeraba (Exit 79) and Varsity Lakes (Exit 85). This upgrade is designed to meet current and future traffic demands and includes new bridges, new barriers and improvements to major interchanges.

Super: Future proofing your M1 journey
V/O: The M1 is the busiest road in our State and is a vital transport link between Queensland and the southern states. This section of the M1 carries over 80,000 vehicles per day. This M1 upgrade will reduce travel time and congestion, improve safety and increase traffic flow. Access on and off the M1 will be improved and allow for better connectivity to your suburb.

Super: New structures and connectivity
V/O: New bridge structures over Mudgeeraba Creek will not only increase the capacity in what has been a notorious pinch point on the southern M1 journey, but will also protect this section of the M1 during times of flood.
Super: Making access to the M1 safer
V/O: There will also be extensions to on and off-ramps and enhancements at busy interchanges that will ensure access to the M1 is hassle free and safer than ever.
Super: more space = more reliability
Super 2: giving you travel time reliability
V/O: These additional lanes will increase capacity and traffic flow and will allow you to arrive home sooner and in a more reliable timeframe.
Super: Managed Motorways technologies
V/O: During the project, provisions for new smart technologies known as Managed Motorways will be installed. These smart technologies will allow for the management of traffic flows via variable speed limits and control the flow of traffic at interchanges via ramp metering.
Super: connectivity to the suburbs
V/O: By upgrading the Stapley Drive interchange you’ll find easier access to the surrounding suburbs of the M1, keeping you connected to the places you love.
Super: Building a better M1
V/O: Jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments, this upgrade is currently under construction.
It is expected to be complete by mid-2020, making your travel on the M1 smoother, more reliable and safer than ever before.
