Project info

In April 2015, the Queensland Government announced funding for design and construction of the Beaudesert Town Centre Bypass to divert heavy vehicles around the town centre.

The Queensland Government partnered with Scenic Rim Regional Council to deliver the $27.5 million Beaudesert Town Centre Bypass.

The town centre bypass starts at the existing Mount Lindesay Highway, near the saw mill (Helen Street), and runs to the west of the town centre with an intersection at Bromelton Street (Beaudesert–Boonah Road) and includes:

  • a 2-lane, 1.5km urban road that will provide a heavy vehicle bypass of the town centre
  • 60km/h at the intersections, with an 80km/h speed limit along the bypass
  • at grade signalised intersections at Helen Street and Bromelton Street
  • Q50 flood immunity, a 50m bridge across Spring Creek and major drainage culverts particularly at Fisher’s Gully.
