The project will deliver targeted upgrades on the Newell Highway in New South Wales, between the Victorian and Queensland borders.
The Toowoomba to Seymour corridor, including the Newell Highway, is a critical link in Australia's freight transport network. It contributes to the competitiveness of Australia's agriculture and mining sectors by opening up access to essential freight networks in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
Addressing identified pinch points in the corridor will improve throughput, while targeted upgrades will increase access for higher efficiency freight vehicles, leading to an overall increase in the efficiency of the corridor. These upgrades will also increase safety for all road users.
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.
Planning is underway.
