Coomera Connector – Stage 1 Central

The Coomera Connector Project is part of the Pacific Motorway M1 Upgrade Program, broken down into two stages.

The project will relieve congestion and safety issues along with queuing along interchanges. Connections for local traffic will be improved to access northern Gold Coast regions, rather than impeding the M1, thus improving travel times along the Pacific Motorway.

Stage 1 Central includes the section between Helensvale Road to Smith Street Motorway, Molendinar.
