Project Description

The Bruce Highway Safety Upgrades package provides for a variety of specific road safety infrastructure initiatives to target known crash sites along the Bruce Highway. The projects identified under these safety initiatives are providing intersection upgrades, pavement widening works, wide centreline markings, overtaking lanes, rest areas, road operational issues and addressing known black spots.


The Bruce Highway Safety Upgrades package through the road safety infrastructure initiatives will improve safety, deliver reduced traffic congestion and travel times, improve freight efficiencies and increase flood immunity.


Under the current 10 year Infrastructure Investment Programme (2013-14 to 2022-23), the Australian Government is funding over $1.3 billion towards road safety infrastructure initiatives on the Bruce Highway.


The road safety infrastructure initiatives are being delivered progressively from July 2009 through to 2019-20 onwards.
