Project Description

This project will upgrade priority sections along the Toowoomba to Seymour corridor (Queensland section). The project may include pavement widening and strengthening, and improved safety features. 

Upgrades along this corridor will contribute to the competitiveness of Australia’s agricultural and mining sectors, opening up access to essential freight networks in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.


The project is expected to deliver:

  • improved transport efficiency for key bulk commodity industries
  • connected agricultural production regions to domestic and international markets
  • improved linkages for drive-based tourism


The Australian Government has committed $510 million towards the Toowoomba to Seymour Corridor, of which $300 million has been committed to New South Wales, $160 million to Victoria, and $50 million to Queensland.


Construction on this corridor will commence in late 2020.
