Ipswich Motorway Upgrade Has Finally Begun!


South East Queensland is getting some serious upgrades!

This $400 million project is one of the biggest infrastructure projects to date. It will provide 400+ jobs as well as provide less congested and safer roads for travelers. The first step in the construction phase will be the closing the northern side of the Donaldson Road exit ramp for construction of the new service road connection over the Oxley Creek floodplain. This project is expected to be finished in 2020.

“Upgrading this section of the motorway from four to six lanes will improve safety and travel times for over 85,000 motorists, including 12,000 commercial vehicles, who use this stretch of the Ipswich Motorway each and every day,” Mr Fletcher said.

Major projects like this require a lot of machinery. This includes machines like our 6 Tonne Capstan Winches. Our 6 Tonne Capstan Winches have all the diesel powered features you need for pulling power cables through conduit, trenches or cable trays with the added convenience of trailer mounted mobility. A heavy duty diesel engine powers hydraulic transmission for smooth controlled pulling. It’s fitted with digital tension and distance gauges to accurately measure and maintain appropriate line pull for the entire pull and data download application.
