Caboolture-Bribie Island Road, Hickey Road to King Johns Creek

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is undertaking planning for the future duplication of Caboolture-Bribie Island Road between King Johns Creek and Hickey Road, including signalisation of the Hickey Road intersection.

The upgrade will ease congestion and improve safety in critical areas.

A business case will be developed to confirm the scope of the project. This is expected to be completed in 2022.

This project forms part of the Bribie Island Road Upgrade Strategy which outlines the Queensland Government's long-term plan to upgrade the road to provide a 4-lane, median-divided cross section for the length of the corridor.
