The construction of the Varsity Lakes Interchange in Queensland’s south has begun following a sod-turning ceremony at the site this week.

The new public transport infrastructure includes a new railway station at Varsity Lakes and 300 commuter car parks, situated off Exit 85 of the Pacific Motorway.

Roundabouts in the region will be replaced with synchronised traffic-signal controlled intersections to reduce queuing onto the motorway through Reedy Creek.

A pedestrian and cycle path will be built by widening the existing road bridge, providing safe access across the Pacific Motorway.

Probuild Civil (Qld) Pty Ltd was awarded the construction contract for the project in early June.

Work on the Nerang South Interchange (Exit 73) upgrade began in February 2008 and is expected to be finished in September, weather permitting.

The Mudgeeraba Interchange (Exit 79) upgrade started in February this year and is due for completion in mid 2010.
