It's still months from starting and years from completion, but a Brisbane company has won the job of widening the Ipswich Motorway. 
It will make 6 lanes between Rocklea and Darra, at a cost of $400 million...funded 50-50 by the State and Federal governments and creating 470 jobs. 
Motorists will have to be patient though...stage one of the project won't be finished until 2020.
