Construction works have commenced on the 16-kilometre Coomera Connector Stage 1, which will create a ‘second M1’ to remove up to 60,000 local trips a day from the M1 Pacific Motorway, south of Brisbane.

The $2.16 billion project will support 1,000 jobs during construction. The first stage of the project will be delivered in three construction packages:

  • Stage 1 North: Shipper Drive, Coomera to Helensvale Road, Helensvale (now underway)
  • Stage 1 Central: Helensvale Road, Helensvale to Smith Street Motorway, Molendinar (expected to start later this year)
  • Stage 1 South: Smith Street Motorway, Molendinar to Nerang-Broadbeach Road, Nerang (in design).

Stage 1 North is being delivered in a joint venture between RA members ACCIONA and Georgiou, and will be built to 4 lanes to meet medium-term traffic needs. Key major structures will be future-proofed to 6 lanes, to help minimise future construction impacts to adjacent residents and the travelling public.

The Coomera Connector is set to open progressively from 2025.
