Warrego Highway East master plan – Ipswich to Toowoomba

The Warrego Highway East master plan project will determine the future requirements of the Warrego Highway transport corridor.

The Warrego Highway East master plan builds on the Warrego Highway Upgrade Strategy released by the Queensland Government in 2012.

Master planning will inform how improvements to the Warrego Highway will be delivered over the next 30 years (and beyond). To allow the implementation of the master plan, we have protected a future transport corridor for the Warrego Highway between Dinmore and Helidon Spa. The future transport corridor follows the current Warrego Highway.

Consultation with landowners and stakeholders on the master plan and corridor protection has been completed between Dinmore and Helidon Spa.

Implementation of the master plan is expected to take place in stages and is dependent on funding.
