Civil construction projects in South East Queensland
Bampak specialises in complex, large-scale concrete structures, successfully delivering some of the most iconic projects in Queensland and Australia-wide. Our expertise and proven experience in civil structures and the management of our Clients’ program and budget, gives us a competitive edge over the marketplace.
Our team of project managers, formwork carpenters, steel fixers and concreters have delivered a range of civil projects including:
Logan Enhancement Project – Logan
Construction is underway on the $512million Logan Enhancement Project, upgrading key parts of the Logan and Gateway Motorways. It is an integrated transport solution that will unlock the economic potential of the Logan region as well as the business/freight hubs in Brisbane’s west and north.
Bampak has been awarded six bridge structures, 5 in the key hotspot area of the Logan Motorway/Beaudesert Road/Mt Lindesay Highway intersection upgrade. With 3 bridges already complete, traffic has been switched on to the newly constructed Beaudesert Road southbound bridge to accommodate the demolition and new construction of the northbound carriageway.
So far Bampak has poured more than 6,000m3 of concrete, tied over 1,000t of steel, and installed 92 precast bridge girders. Check out the video of our installation of the 60t, 32m long Super-T girders over the Logan Motorway
Mayes Canal Pedestrian & Cycle Bridge – Mooloolaba
The connection between Mooloolaba and Minyama is an important link in the Sunshine Coast Council’s Cycle Network Plan and is the first separated bikeway within an urban/business area on the Sunshine Coast. Stage 5 of construction provides the vital link between Bindaree Crescent and River Esplanade, completing the Coastal Pathway and separating pedestrians/cyclists from the busy Brisbane Road.
Bampak has been awarded the construction of the Mayes Canal Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge. The 66m long bridge features decorative panel elements, coloured bridge decks, exposed pattern approaches as well as “glow in the dark” footpaths and will be an entry statement into the Mooloolaba area. Construction is on target to be completed on schedule despite some unique challenges such as building suspended headstocks over a channel open to vessels and water craft.
Despite the unique challenges of working above a large body of water, the project is on target to be completed on schedule.
Inner-City Bypass – Brisbane
More than 105,000 vehicles use the ICB every weekday making it one of the city’s most important routes. It is a vital link in keeping Brisbane moving with connections to Lutwyche Road, Clem7, and two other Bampak Projects – AirportlinkM7, and Legacy Way.
Bampak constructed the new westbound on-ramp to allow general traffic from Bowen Bridge Road as well as buses from the Inner Northern Busway to connect directly to the ICB. The structure consisted of eight spans including one that joins the existing bridge and is supported by 8m high blade walls and a 115m3 concrete U-shaped headstock.
Prior to the upgrade, the ICB was operating at up to 90% capacity and would have been severely over capacity by 2021. The upgrade has now transformed Brisbane’s busiest arterial road providing increased capacity, improved travel times and safety for all road users. You can find out more about the project here
Cooroy to Curra Section C – Bruce Highway
The Bruce Highway Upgrade (Cooroy to Curra) Project involves a 62km upgrade and realignment of the Bruce Highway, including a bypass of Gympie, and is one of Queensland’s highest priority road projects.
In one of our biggest projects to date, Bampak delivered thirteen bridge structures along the $384 million Section C (Traveston to Woondum) segment, including eight major waterway crossings and five overpasses constructed over live traffic. Reaching a total of 70 direct control employees at the peak of construction, Bampak delivered the project within the 12 month timeframe aided by our fleet of lifting and access equipment – 20t rough terrain, 18t franna, manitou and knuckle boom.
The new 10.5km highway section has delivered a new 4-lane divided highway on a new and improved alignment, supporting safe and high speed travel while also providing a 1 in 100 year flood immunity.

Legacy Way Tunnel – Brisbane
The Legacy Way Tunnel consists of two separate 4.6km parallel road tunnels, connecting Brisbane’s western suburbs to the Inner City. Bampak was engaged by Transcity JV to manage and construct the FRP works for the Eastern Tunnel Ventilation shaft.
Upon the successful completion of these works, Bampak was awarded further FRP works for the Structural Fitout of the Eastern Portal. The package was again for the full management and delivery of construction while also maintaining full time access through the extremely tight work corridor.
