    An initial round of community consultation was undertaken in November and December 2021 to enable the department to understand the key issues and invite suggestions for improvements on Deception Bay Road.

    Read more about the 2021 community consultation results.

    The department invited feedback on the preferred planning layout from November 2022 to January 2023. Comments reflected the 2021 feedback, highlighting similar themes that active transport, general safety, environment and road capacity need to be considered.
