Case Study- M1Slab Replacement Project

A recent case study produced by Volumetric Concrete Australia

The M1 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, is the key route between Tugun near the New South Wales-Queensland border to the Sunshine Coast hinterland via the following corridors:

• Pacific Motorway between Tugun and Eight Mile Plains

• Gateway Motorway between Eight Mile Plains and Bald Hills

• Bruce Highway between Bald Hills and Cooroy

The Pacific Highway continues on south from the M1 into New South Wales, while the Bruce Highway continues further north from the M1 up the Queensland coast. Both of these roads and the M1 itself are part of the line of route of National Highway 1, although M1 signage is used for that part of the corridor.

Since its completion, the M1 has saved Queensland motorists countless hours and millions of dollars, reduced air, noise and water pollution and made travelling faster and safer for everyone.

Currently, Roadtek is upgrading the M1 motorway including asphalt re-sheeting of on/off ramps and vegetation maintenance whilst also rehabilitating slab sections which have fallen below substandard

conditions due to heavy trafficking.
