Progress Road Upgrade

Project Overview

The project involved upgrading Progess Road between Boundary Road and the Centenary Motorway in Wacol, improving safety, increasing flood immunity, and increasing traffic capacity to cater for future traffic growth. The upgrade between Boundary Road and the Centenary Motorway was the final stage on Progress Road to be upgraded between Ipswich and Centenary highway. It is a primary access route for freight transport as well as a B-Double route. Research found the road has over 15,000 vehicles a day and up to 700 during peak hour.
