The Bruce Highway Upgrade Program is the largest road infrastructure program Queensland has ever seen. It is aimed at improving safety, flood resilience, and capacity along the length and breadth of the highway between Brisbane and Cairns.
Bruce Highway Upgrade—Deception Bay Road to Caboolture-Bribie Island Road
We are undertaking a planning study to investigate future upgrade requirements on the Bruce Highway between Deception Bay Road and Caboolture-Bribie Island Road.
The planning study will investigate widening the Bruce Highway to 8 lanes and future upgrades required at Uhlmann Road, Buchanan Road and Caboolture-Bribie Island Road interchanges. The project will also consider upgrades to the Old Bay Road and Station Road overpass at Burpengary, and the connection between the Caboolture-Bribie Island Road interchange and the D’Aguilar Highway.
The planning study is in addition to planning already completed as part of the Bruce Highway Upgrade—Pine River to Caloundra Road planning project.
