Warrego Highway Upgrade Program: Jingi Jingi Creek culvert


The department has improved highway safety by replacing these culverts with a new bridge to facilitate freight and traffic volumes anticipated to travel along this section of the Warrego Highway.


Approximately 52.5km west of Dalby on the Warrego Highway.


Upgrade works were completed in August 2017.


Project benefits included:

  • improved safety on the Warrego Highway by providing approved safety barriers on the new structure
  • improved transport efficiency and productivity, supporting and contributing to economic growth through reduced road-user costs and travel times.
  • promotion of regional development through improved supply chain efficiency and strengthened connectivity to key export points and markets for the agricultural and resource sectors
  • opportunities for greater employment by providing a safe, efficient and reliable route to support local, regional and tourist traffic, and
  • improved reliability of travel on the highway.

Project info

The project involved works on a 1.3 kilometre section of the Warrego Highway, commencing 7 kilometres west of the town of Warra and extending to approximately 8 kilometres east of the town of Brigalow.

The asset had further deteriorated due to the high proportion of multi-combination vehicles travelling on the highway (approximately 10% of all vehicles).

This project replaced the structurally deficient 40 cell reinforced concrete boxed culvert with a new structure and approaches (11 metres wide) where Jingi Jingi Creek crosses the Warrego Highway.

Work at the Jingi Jingi Creek crossing included:

  • a new structure of similar length and lane configuration to the existing structure at 150m long, with approximately 1150m of approach road works on a two way single carriageway
  • 11 metre pavement width, comprising 2 x 3.5 metre traffic lanes and 2 x 2 metre shoulders
  • expected pavement life extended to 20 years.

Community info

The $635 million Warrego Highway Upgrade Program (WHUP) is funded 80% by the federal government and 20% by the state government.
