The Gladstone-Benaraby Road project is funded through the High Risk Roads (HRR) initiative which forms part of the TRSP. This state funded initiative aims to address key safety concerns on the state-controlled network, identified for the whole of a road segment or route, instead of at individual discrete locations.

Funding from the HRR initiative will support construction of a range of safety treatments on Gladstone-Benaraby Road as well as the roundabout approached at Philip Street / Glenlyon Road.

Project info

Gladstone-Benaraby Road traverses urban, industrial and rural areas and provides an important local connection for commuter, industrial and recreational traffic to and from Gladstone. 

Through the High Risk Roads Program, The Queensland Government has invested $20.4 million to deliver 14km of wide centre-line treatment on Gladstone-Benaraby Road, remove safety hazards from within the road corridor to improve visibility and sight distance, and realign the Rifle Range Road intersection to improve safety for road users.

It will also include works around property accesses within the project extent to ensure traffic can safely travel around turning vehicles and resurfacing of the Philip Street and Glenlyon Road roundabout approaches.

The widening works are being delivered in 2 stages. Stage 1, between the Bruce Highway and Boyne Island Roundabout is currently in construction. Stage 2, between Boyne Island Roundabout and Dalrymple Drive is expected to be completed by December 2020.

The implementation of these road safety treatments will provide a consistent customer experience that meets driver and community expectation.
