Project Description

This Business Case will examine the viability of constructing a western alternative corridor parallel to the Bruce Highway in north Brisbane.

An alternative corridor would relieve congestion and improve safety outcomes for commuters and businesses in the growing northern Brisbane region. It would also reduce local trips from the Bruce Highway.


If constructed, this project is expected to:

  • improve road safety and reduce congestion for all road users along the current Bruce Highway corridor
  • improve connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets, to and from Brisbane


The Australian Government is contributing $10 million towads the project.


The delivery of the business case will be determined in consultation with the Queensland Government.
