Project info

Works to improve safety on the Bruce Highway between the Pine River bridge and Anzac Avenue are now underway.

The project involves installing wire rope barriers on the inside road shoulders in both directions on the highway. The new barriers will link in with the existing barriers which extend to Caboolture. These works will improve safety for road users by helping fill the 'missing gaps' in the Bruce Highway's existing barrier network, and will prevent and reduce median crossing crashes.

This work commenced in June 2016 and is expected to be complete in December 2016, weather permitting. Works are being carried out at night between 7pm and 4.30am, Monday to Saturday. Work restrictions apply during school and public holidays, and major events. Changed traffic conditions including reduced speed limits and lane closures are required while works are carried out, but are returned to normal at the end of each shift.

This project is jointly funded by the Australian Government and Queensland Government under the Bruce Highway Safety Package. It is the first project in a program of similar works to be carried out along the Bruce Highway between the Pine River and Gympie.
