Cimic Group company, CPB Contractors, has reached contractual close with Transurban Queensland to design and construct the $512 million Logan Enhancement project in Queensland. The contract will generate revenue of approximately $420 million for CPB Contractors.

The Logan Enhancement project is an innovative and sustainable infrastructure solution that will have lasting value for Queenslanders by future proofing one of the state’s busiest motorways.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Román Garrido said: “We will be working closely with Transurban Queensland to ensure our design and construction methods achieve the project’s objectives and provide efficiency and reliability in its delivery. It is our privilege to contribute our major project experience in support of the expected growth of the region, including strategic procurement and partnering arrangements during the construction phase that will provide opportunities for local workers and businesses.”
Works include upgrading the Wembley Road, Beaudesert Road/Mount Lindesay Highway and Compton Road interchanges; realigning and widening the Logan Motorway to six lanes from Mount Lindesay Highway to the Wembley Road ramp; and widening the Gateway Extension Motorway from four to six lanes between Compton Road and the Logan Motorway.
