Project Description

This project involves pavement widening and strengthening works, including wide-centre line treatments, on high priority sections of the Bruce Highway between Home Hill and Ingham.


The pavement widening will be combined with the application of wide centre line treatments to separate vehicles on two lane sections of the Highway, greatly reducing the risk of head on type crashes.


The Australian Government has committed up to $87.24 million to the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.


Works commenced in June 2016 and will be completed progressively through until late 2023, weather permitting.
