Project info

The planning project will complete preliminary planning for priority upgrade works to the 60km link of the Bruce Highway between the Pine River and Caloundra Road Interchange. 

The planning will investigate and prioritise upgrade works to increase safety, ease congestion and improve flood immunity.

Planning for priority projects is due to be completed by late 2017, with the remainder of planning to be completed by mid-2018.

The following projects have been identified as priorities for acceleration:

The Australian and Queensland governments have committed $662.5 million (Australian Government $530 million/Queensland Government $132.5 million) for the six-laning of the Bruce Highway between Caboolture and Steve Irwin Way.

This funding will allow for the acceleration of planning and construction of widening the highway from 4 to 6 lanes and flood immunity improvements between Caboolture and Steve Irwin Way.

Preliminary planning is due to be complete by late 2017.  

Bruce Highway/Deception Bay Road Interchange Upgrade

The Australian and Queensland governments have committed $150 million (Australian Government $120 million/Queensland Government $30 million) to upgrade the Bruce Highway/Deception Bay Road Interchange.

Preliminary planning is due to be complete by late 2017.
