Project Description

The project involves planning and construction for the extension of the Gladstone Port Access Road from Stage 1 (completed in 2005), including an upgrade of the Glenlyon Street and Port Access Road intersection, and the duplication and upgrade of minor roads.

The project will create an alternative route for heavy vehicles accessing the Port of Gladstone, providing consistent trip times for freight vehicles, a safer environment for all road users and protection of future road corridors. This is consistent with the Australian Government's objective of supporting the freight sector through coordinated and targeted investment.


The project will join up with the existing Port Access Road to provide an alternative route for heavy vehicles accessing the Port of Gladstone. The project will also improve road safety for all motorists by alleviating the impact of large vehicles and hazardous goods movements on local roads and general commuter traffic.


The Australian Government has committed up to $100 million towards the project.


The delivery schedule will be determined in consultation with the Queensland Government.
