Bruce Highway Upgrade—Deception Bay Road Interchange
The Deception Bay Road interchange project is being delivered as part of the Bruce Highway Upgrade to improve safety, ease congestion and cater for future traffic growth.
The department has developed a preferred planning layout for the future widening of Deception Bay Road from 2 to 4 lanes, between the Bruce Highway and Park Road/Lipscombe Road intersection.
The preferred planning layout shows how future upgrades will improve safety, ease congestion and cater for future traffic growth.
The section between the Bruce Highway and Park Road is the last remaining two-lane section of Deception Bay Road. Duplicating this 3.3km section will provide a seamless transition from the Bruce Highway Upgrade – Deception Bay Road interchange which will be completed in early 2023.

An initial round of community consultation inviting community opinion was conducted during November-December 2021.
Further consultation inviting community feedback on the preferred planning layout occurred from 28 November 2022 to 11 January 2023.
TMR would like to thank everyone who provided feedback during the consultation periods. All feedback received will be considered as the planning phase is finalised.
Although consultation has closed, you can find out more on the Community Consultation page.
Timeframes for detailed design and construction of this project are not known at this time and will depend on future funding commitments and competing statewide priorities.
The map shows a 3.3km section of Deception Bay Road from the Bruce Highway to Park Road/Lipscombe Road intersection. For community consultation, the project area was divided into 2 sections:
Section 1 – from Bruce Highway to Zammit Street
Section 2 – from Zammit Street to Park Road.
