Toowoomba Connection Road, Hursley Road intersection, business case

Planning is underway to improve safety and efficiency at the Toowoomba Connection and Hursley roads intersection.

Feedback is being sought from the community and road users who regularly use this busy intersection. 

This section of Toowoomba Connection Road is locally known as Tor Street. Tor Street is the key east-west arterial route through Toowoomba for local traffic and freight, and is approved for use by type 1 road trains.  

Planning will assess the current and future transport requirements at the intersection and investigate options to improve safety and efficiency for all road users.

This planning project will deliver a business case for the preferred option in November 2022 and then seek to protect a transport corridor to allow for future upgrades of the intersection.

This is a planning project only, there is no timeframe for construction.
