Moggill Road and Western Freeway interchange upgrade update
As part of work for the Legacy Way tunnel project, the Moggill Road and Western Freeway interchange will be upgraded prior to the tunnel opening in 2015.
In preparation for works starting on the interchange upgrade, Transcity will establish a worksite on the corner of Rennies Road and Moggill Road in Indooroopilly (see map, right).
Once built, the worksite will be used for staff parking until construction activity on the upgrade starts which is expected in late 2012. Transcity expects the worksite to be in place until 2014.
Activities to establish the worksite will start in late May and be undertaken from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Mondays to Saturdays. Transcity expects this work will take approximately two weeks to complete (weather permitting).
Activities will include:
- erection of safety fences and barriers
- deliveries of materials to site
- asphalting to seal the site
- set-up of temporary site office.
What to expect:
- some noise from the use of machinery during set-up
- some short-term odour due to the required asphalting.
Interchange upgrade timing update
Transcity is currently developing the detailed design for the upgrade of the Moggill Road and Western Freeway interchange. This design is due to be completed in the coming months. Once finalised, Transcity will inform the local community and road users.
Construction of the interchange upgrade is expected to start in late 2012 and will take approximately
18 months to complete.

Why is the upgrade needed?
The upgrade will ensure future traffic demand at the interchange is managed when Legacy Way opens. It is required as part of the Queensland Coordinator- General’s approval of Legacy Way.
About Legacy Way
Legacy Way is a 4.6km road tunnel that will connect the Western Freeway at Toowong with the Inner City Bypass (ICB) at Kelvin Grove. It will provide an alternative route to local roads for traffic leaving the Western Freeway and travelling to and from the ICB. When it opens, Legacy Way will reduce, by up to 44%, the peak hour travel time of journeys from the Centenary Bridge to the ICB.
Working with you
Transcity is committed to minimising impacts on local residents during the construction of Legacy Way and we look forward to working with you throughout the duration of the project.
