For more than 30 years we have built, maintained and operated road, bridge and tolling infrastructure, essential for the growth of south-east Queensland.
We commenced operations as the Gateway Bridge Company in 1980. In 1987 the Logan Motorway Company was formed, followed by Port Motorway Company in 2002. Today, these companies are subsidiaries of Queensland Motorways Pty Limited.
Over the years we have amassed the expertise and capabilities to deliver major construction projects. These have created vital infrastructure, enhanced our motorways and implemented technology, equipping our network to meet future traffic growth. Our recent projects have included:
- the $34 million Paradise Road Interchange, which connects the Logan Motorway and Paradise Road in all directions. Completed in 2007, this infrastructure was designed to meet projected traffic growth in the Larapinta area and also provided the first unmanned toll plaza in Queensland.
- successfully implementing electronic tolling across our network. The delivery of this project in 2009 enhanced efficiency and safety across our network and was recognised by the International Bridge Tunnel and Turnpike Association with an Award for Excellence.
- the $2.12 billion Gateway Upgrade Project completed in 2011. This was one of the largest bridge and road projects in Queensland’s history, comprising the duplication of the iconic Sir Leo Hielscher Bridge (formerly known as the Gateway Bridge), 16 kilometres of road upgrades and widening, seven kilometres of new roads and the installation of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) technologies. The project was delivered on budget and ahead of schedule.
In 2011, the State Government transferred ownership of Queensland Motorways to the State’s Defined Benefit Fund (under the management of QIC Global Infrastructure). We operate under a 40-year Road Franchise Agreement with the State. This allows us to toll, operate and maintain our network until 2051.
