The Bruce Highway Safety Package will upgrade high-risk safety locations with appropriate treatments such as wide-centre line treatments, line markings, safety barriers, roadside clearing, hazard removal, intersections improvements, rest areas, signage, line marking and signals improvements.
These treatments will improve safety along the entire length of the Bruce Highway.
The Australian Government is providing up to $631.4 million to the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.
The first of the safety works commenced in January 2015. The package will be progressively rolled out through to early 2024.
