Project info

The 5,400 motorists travelling the Bruce Highway south of Rockhampton daily have benefitted 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 has seen the Bruce Highway reconstructed to rebuild sections of highway at Bajool and Bobs Creek which were previously rough, potholed or corrugated.

In addition to the highway reconstruction, the works also included 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) were also 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 users and most importantly, will cater for the continued growth of Bruce Highway traffic into the future.

Construction commenced in February 2017 and the completed works opened to traffic in November 2018. An average of 20 direct jobs were supported over the life of the project.
