Bruce Highway Upgrade—Deception Bay Road Interchange

We are delivering the Deception Bay Road Interchange project as part of the Bruce Highway Upgrade to improve safety, ease congestion and cater for future traffic growth.

Benefits

  • Improves safety
  • Improves network efficiency
  • Increases traffic flow
  • Reduces peak hour congestion
  • Reduces interchange queuing

Key features

Key features of the project include:

  • providing 2 new parallel bridges over the Bruce Highway and removing the existing 2-lane bridge
  • upgrading 2 signalised intersections on Deception Bay Road, 1 immediately west of the interchange at Old Gympie Road, and 1 immediately east of the interchange at Eastern Service Road
  • increasing the length and capacity of existing on and off ramps
  • providing active transport facilities for pedestrians and bike riders.

Funding

The project is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments on an 80:20 (federal:state) basis

Total investment
$150 million
Australian Government
$120 million
Queensland Government
$30 million

Current status

We are currently undertaking Early Works to relocate public utility services such as water, power and telecommunications infrastructure. Motorists may experience minor delays and are encouraged to drive to the changed traffic conditions, obeying signage, reduced speed limits and traffic controller directions at all times. 

Construction is scheduled to start in late 2020, weather and construction conditions permitting.
