Project Description

This is one of the 15 projects being delivered as part of the Australian Government's $508 million commitment to the Warrego Highway - Toowoomba to Miles - Upgrade Programme.

Funding

The Australian Government is providing up to $25.8 million to the project in partnership with the Queensland Government.

Timetable

Construction commenced in July 2016 and is expected to be completed in mid 2017.
