• The LNP will build the Second M1 to bust congestion on the Pacific Motorway, getting Gold Coasters home safer and sooner
  • LNP commits $250 million towards $500 million new four-lane arterial between Nerang and Stapylton in partnership with the Federal Government
  • Only the LNP will build the roads, bridges and dams Queensland needs

Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington has announced a plan to end the traffic chaos on the M1 Pacific Motorway to get Gold Coasters home safer and sooner.

The LNP has committed $250 million towards building a Second M1 which will act as an alternative to the existing Pacific Motorway running between Nerang-Broadbeach Road and Stapylton-Jacobs Well Road.

Ms Frecklington said the M1 was regularly crippled by traffic and accidents and an alternative was needed.

“Gold Coasters are sick of sitting in traffic day in, day out. Our plan for a Second M1 will get people home from work sooner,” she said.

“Labor isn’t interested in fixing the M1, instead they have focused on political brawls with the Federal Government and have dismissed an alternative route out of hand.

“By contrast, we will work constructively with the Federal Government to build this new four-lane arterial.”

“The LNP will build the roads, bridges and dams we need to Build a Better Queensland.”
