Project Description

This major upgrade of the Smith Street Motorway and Olsen Avenue included construction of a freeflowing loop ramp at the interchange. The GC Connect Joint Venture, a design and construct joint venture between Seymour Whyte and Parsons Brinckerhoff, was unique. Both constructor and designer shared the risks and opportunities presented by the project, allowing for a greater focus on collaboration and delivery through the design and construction phases. The project was the third phase of a series of staged road upgrades and improvements to provide access to the Gold Coast University Hospital, cater for expansion of the Griffith University campus and service the Gold Coast's first light rail public transport system.
