Gold Coast to share in huge road funding boost

Gold Coast roads are set to receive an upgrade following the announcement of a fast-tracked $140 million worth of major road projects to be shared with Logan.

Of that funding, $31.9 million will be rolled out in 2016-17 on the Gold Coast and Logan.

Roads Minister Mark Bailey says the project will also boost jobs for the region, when they’re rolled out over the next year and a half.

“The fast-tracked program will include road re-surfacing, pavement and structures rehabilitation, minor culvert replacement, signage renewal, managing land slips as well as intersection and traffic enhancements”, Mr Bailey said.

“Importantly, it will also mean more jobs opportunities will be available sooner.
“The funding opportunity was identified in the Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program (QTRIP) which is delivering record funding for road and transport projects of more than $20 billion over four years and creating nearly 16,000 jobs.”
