Project info

The planning project is investigating and prioritising upgrade works to increase safety, ease congestion and improve flood immunity for the 60km link of the Bruce Highway between the Pine River and the Caloundra Road interchange.

  1. Bruce Highway Upgrade - Managed Motorways Stage 2 
  2. Bruce Highway Upgrade - Caboolture-Bribie Island Road to Steve Irwin Way (Exit 163)
  3. Bruce Highway Upgrade - Deception Bay Road Interchange
