Construction of a four lane bypass to the east of the town of Tiaro which provides improved flood immunity at flood prone areas and reduces the heavy vehicle traffic from the Tiaro township, improving safety and congestion for residents.
The benefits include improved flood immunity, increasing safety for people living in Tiaro as well as road users, capacity increases and reductions in peak hour congestion.
The Australian Government has committed $268.6 million towards the project in partnership with the Queensland Government.
Construction is expected to commence early 2023, and is expected to be completed in late 2024, weather permitting.
