The project will involve construction of a ring road in Mackay between Stockroute Road and the intersection of the Bruce Highway and Bald Hill Road.
The completed Ring Road will address the capacity limitations and accident risks of the existing route and improve the movement of freight traffic.
The Australian Government has committed up to $397.9 million towards the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.
A date for the commencement of construction will be determined through planning works but it is expected to be mid 2017, with construction expected to be completed in mid 2020, weather permitting.
