Caboolture-Bribie Island Road Upgrade Program

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is planning sequential upgrades to improve safety, ease congestion and improve traffic flow and connectivity on critical sections of Caboolture-Bribie Island Road.

The road will be upgraded to 4 lanes, with a median-divided cross section for its entire length.

The department has developed the Bribie Island Road Upgrade Strategy which identifies a program of works to deliver upgrade projects sequentially on Caboolture-Bribie Island Road. 

As projects are progressed, consultation with key stakeholders and the community will be undertaken.
