HDR | WSP Joint Venture Selected for M1 Pacific Motorway Upgrade

Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads is embarking on several strategic projects that form part of the Pacific Motorway M1 upgrade program from the Gateway Motorway to Tugun.

The M1 is one of Australia’s busiest highways and an integral component of the national freight network. The upgrade program will provide additional capacity to meet current and future traffic demands, reduce congestion, improve travel time reliability and access, and enhance the overall safety of the motorway.

TMR has appointed the HDR | WSP Joint Venture (HWJV) to provide detailed design for the Burleigh Interchange to 19th Avenue project, a 2.5km corridor along the M1 on the Gold Coast. The project is challenging from both a technical and stakeholder perspective. It requires an experienced design team with the right collaborative culture that provides full confidence of delivery to TMR, the community and road users.
