Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road safety upgrades

Planning is underway to improve safety on Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road.

The community have had their say to help identify opportunities for safety improvements that will reduce the risk of fatal and serious injury crashes on Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road.

Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road is an important rural road in the Darling Downs, connecting agricultural communities with markets and services in Southern Queensland.  

This planning aims to identify low cost, high benefit safety treatments that will improve transport efficiency and reliability while supporting economic development in southern Queensland and the Darling Downs.
