Project Description

The project will  involve pavement widening and strengthening works, including wide-centre line treatments, on high priority sections of the Bruce Highway between Caboolture to St Lawrence.


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 is providing up to $85.56 million to the project, in partnership with the Queensland Government.


Works commenced in early 2015 and were completed in late 2018.
