Project info

The 5,400 motorists travelling the Bruce Highway south of Rockhampton daily will benefit from 9.5km of highway reconstruction, widening and intersection upgrades between Bajool and Midgee (Rockhampton).

The Bruce Highway is Queensland's major North-South freight and tourism route, providing the economic lifeblood for communities across the state.

This investment will see the Bruce Highway reconstructed to rebuild sections of highway at Bajool and Bobs Creek which are currently rough, potholed or corrugated.

In addition to the highway reconstruction, the works will also include shoulder widening and wide centre line treatment, to add to the near 200km of wide centreline safety works completed on the Bruce Highway in Central Queensland in recent years.

The intersections at Upper Ulam Road, Comino Road, Mogilno Road, Gavial-Gracemere Road and Roope Road (Midgee) will also be upgraded within the project scope to provide new turning lanes at these intersection, a major safety improvement for all road users at these locations.

The Bruce Highway works south of Rockhampton will result in significant safety and traffic flow improvements for all road uses and most importantly, will cater for the continued growth of Bruce Highway traffic into the future.

Construction commenced in February 2017, with the works to take up to 12 months to complete, weather permitting.

An average of 20 direct jobs will be supported over the life of the project.
