This project involves planning, design and landowner compensation for the future upgrade of a 65 kilometre section of the Bruce Highway from Cooroy to Curra, including a bypass of Gympie.
The future upgrade will reduce travel times and improve the safety and efficiency of the Bruce Highway through the Cooroy to Curra section, supporting the needs of local communities, long distance road freight and tourist traffic.
The Australian Government is providing $200 million to the project.
Planning and design works and land acquisition towards the future upgrade of the highway are ongoing.
