The Gateway Motorway is an integral part of the go via network. It provides:
- an efficient and safe Brisbane city (CBD) bypass
- north south connection between the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, as well as access to the busy port of Brisbane and airport precincts.
We operate the Gateway Motorway from Nudgee Road in the north to the Pacific Motorway in the south, including the iconic Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges.
The first bridge (formerly known as the Gateway Bridge) was constructed in 1986 as an additional crossing for the Brisbane River. The duplicate bridge was constructed as part of the $2.12 billion Gateway Upgrade Project, completed in 2011. The bridges are named to honour Sir Leo Hielscher, who contributed 68 years of public service to Queensland.
The Gateway Extension was constructed in 1997 to provide a critical connection between the Gateway Motorway and the Logan Motorway. It provides an efficient network by connecting the:
- Logan Motorway
- Gateway Motorway
- Pacific Motorway
- major suburban roads including Compton Road, Logan Road and Miles Platting Road.
