Brisbane's new Gateway Bridge progressing
By Richard High19 March 2010
Construction of the new Gateway Bridge, Brisbane is progressing with the Leighton Abigroup Joint Venture currently working on pavements and drainage in the old toll plaza area.
The bridge is part of the AU$ 1.88 billion (US$ 1.45 billion) Gateway Upgrade Project.
The second Gateway Bridge will open to southbound traffic in mid-2010, followed by refurbishment of the existing Bridge under partial lane closures.
Both bridges will be fully opened to traffic by early 2011, with six lanes for southbound traffic and six lanes for northbound traffic.
The project is being delivered by Queensland Motorways with design and construction by the Leighton Abigroup Joint Venture.
