Brisbane Valley Highway safety improvements

Design work is now underway to improve safety for the Brisbane Valley Highway.

Improvements to approximately 14km of the Brisbane Valley Highway will reduce the rate and severity of crashes and improve traffic efficiency.

The Brisbane Valley Highway provides a busy route for motorists travelling to Brisbane and Ipswich. Traffic incidents currently result in significant delays or road closures. The proposed road treatments will help to address these issues and provide a safer road network.
