Funding:

An additional $2 million has been allocated to progress early planning. The project is funded on an 80:20 basis with the Australian Government contributing $1.6 million and the Queensland Government contributing $400,000.

The $2 million planning study is in addition to $8 million that was allocated for the Bruce Highway Planning Project (Pine River to Caloundra Road).

Project info

The planning study will investigate widening the Bruce Highway to 8 lanes and future upgrades required at Uhlmann Road, Buchanan Road and Caboolture-Bribie Island Road interchanges. The project will also consider upgrades to the Old Bay Road and Station Road overpass at Burpengary, and the connection between the Caboolture-Bribie Island Road interchange and the D’Aguilar Highway.

The planning study is in addition to planning already completed as part of the Bruce Highway Planning Project (Pine River to Caloundra Road).

Next steps

Planning between Deception Bay Road and the Caboolture-Bribie Island Road interchange is scheduled to be completed in 2020. There is currently no timing for construction of any upgrades on this section of the Bruce Highway.

Funding for future project stages, including a business case and detailed design are dependent on the planning outcomes and competing priorities.
