Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road safety upgrades

Planning to improve safety on Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road has been completed.

The community 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. 

Community feedback has been collated into a business case which prioritises a number of low cost, high benefit safety treatments to improve transport efficiency and reliability whilst supporting economic development in southern Queensland and the Darling Downs.

The business case will be used to apply for construction funding.
