Project info

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will widen the 11-kilometre stretch of the Bruce Highway from 4 to 6 lanes between Caboolture-Bribie Island Road and Steve Irwin Way (Exit 163). This will include upgrading creek crossings to improve flood immunity at Lagoon, King John, Six Mile, Rose and Beerburrum Creeks.

This upgrade will:

  • improve safety, reliability and flood immunity
  • increase highway capacity
  • reduce travel times and congestion
  • raise the highway at flood-prone locations to reduce delays during flooding.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2020 and will be completed by 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting.

This project was identified as 1 of 3 priority projects during the planning for future upgrades to the Bruce Highway, between Pine River and Caloundra Road interchange.
