Warrego Highway Upgrade Program: Dalby Eastern Access Upgrade

Overview:

The department is planning to upgrade the Warrego Highway through the eastern half of Dalby.

Location:

The Warrego Highway on the eastern side of Dalby between just east of Winton Street and Nicholson Street (Moonie Highway).

Completion:

Construction of this project is expected to begin in August 2017 and take approximately 15 months.

Benefits:

Improved safety at intersections due to the provision of dedicated right turn lanes designed to accommodate growing traffic volumes on the eastern approach to Dalby.

Regions:
Downs South West Region

Project info

The proposed works will include a new four-lane section between from just east of Winton Street to Orpen Street.

Upgrading the existing four-lane section between Orpen Street and Moonie Highway will include:

  • new traffic signals
  • additional turning lanes
  • centre median strip
  • new kerb and channel
  • improved street lighting.

This project will reduce the conflict between local and through traffic by providing safer opportunities for turning manoeuvres and improving connectivity across the highway for local traffic.

Other proposed works include:

  • replacing/removing current parking arrangements on the Warrego Highway that do not meet safety standards and pose a hazard to highway traffic with alternative facilities on the adjacent local network
  • pavement reconstruction, which will provide a smoother driving surface and reduce road user and road maintenance costs.

Community info

Travel times will be impacted by these projects. Local, regional and statewide motorists and heavy vehicle operators using the Warrego Highway between Toowoomba and Miles will need to factor in extra travel time due to multiple Warrego Highway upgrade sites over the next 2 years.

The Warrego Highway Upgrade Program (WHUP) is a $635 million package of 15 approved projects between Toowoomba and Miles that are planned to be delivered between 2014 and mid-2019. The WHUP is funded 80% by the federal government and 20% by the state government.
