Project info

The project aims to improve road safety and freight efficiency and support the ongoing development of the Surat Basin by constructing 7  overtaking lanes (4 westbound and 3 eastbound), at 4 locations between Dalby and Miles.

The new lanes will provide additional opportunities for safe overtaking and reduce road congestion for road users.

Community info

Travel times will be impacted by these projects. Local, regional and state-wide 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.

This project is to be delivered as part of the $635 million Warrego Highway Upgrade Program (WHUP) to be implemented between 2014 and mid-2019. The WHUP is funded 80% by the federal government and 20% by the state government.
