Project description

This project will provide various progressive upgrades for the Glenroy Road, near Rockhampton, including pavement sealing and widening and a new bridge at the Fitzroy River crossing. The road varies in condition, from unsealed to dual lane, and the crossing at Fitzroy River is currently single lane, in poor condition, with minimal flood immunity.

Led by Rockhampton Regional Council, this project will improve safety, access and flood immunity and reduce road closures. As Glenroy Road is important for servicing agricultural developments along the corridor, improving its useability will also support current and developing industry.

This project will support freight movements, regional growth and connectivity, and improve safety for all road users.

Benefits

Improved road safety for all road users, reduced congestion and improve travel times and improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets.

Funding

Total funding of $25 million (Australian Government contribution $20 million, Queensland Government contribution $5 million).

Timetable

This project is expected to commence construction in mid-2024 and be completed by mid-2028.
