PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

Increases in travel demand and expected developments along parts of the Cunningham Highway are expected to create additional safety considerations and capacity constraints, particularly at the intersection of Ipswich–Rosewood Road.

PROPOSAL DESCRIPTION

The objective of the proposal is to meet current and forecast travel demand, driven by development in the south-western corridor, including the Aerospace and Defence Support Centre, Ripley Valley and Greater Springfield residential developments.

The Cunningham Highway—Yamanto to Ebenezer Creek proposal involves strategic upgrades to a 4.75 kilometre section of the Cunningham Highway between Warwick Road at Yamanto and Ebenezer Creek, to the south west of Ipswich.

The proposal will deliver a highway interchange and new alignment connecting the Cunningham Highway, Centenary Motorway extension and the Western Ipswich Bypass.
