The Cairns Southern Access - Stage 5 project involves a grade separation upgrade at the Bruce Highway and Foster Road intersection in Cairns.
This project will build on the existing commitments made along the Cairns Southern Access Corridor, including upgrades between Edmonton and Gordonvale, Robert Road and Foster Road, and Kate St (renamed Links Drive) and Aumuller Road.
This project will improve capacity and traffic flow including movements in and out of nearby suburban streets. It will also improve road safety by reducing congestion around the intersection.
The Australian Government has committed up to $180 million towards the project.
The delivery schedule will be determined in consultation with the Queensland Government.
