Project Description

This project will develop a business case to upgrade Anzac Avenue to Uhlmann Road on the Bruce Highway. The business case will consider configuring 12.9 kilometres of this section of road and converting from six lanes to eight lanes, utilising the previously upgraded interchanges at Boundary Road and Deception Bay Road. This will adjoin the Gateway Motorway Bruce Highway Upgrade at Anzac Avenue, providing much needed capacity upgrades and enabling the benefits of the southern upgrades to be fully realised. The business case will also consider addressing traffic capacity and congestion with continued growth of freight and passenger movements. It will take account of forecases which show this section will be operating at 148% of existing 6-lane capacity by 2031 as well as safety issues that have been identified within the project area, including high crash sites, poor travel time reliability, and delays for freight vehicles.


Improved road safety for all road users, reduced congenstion and improved travel times, improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods wiht markets.


The total project cost is $9.6 million (Australian Government has committed $9.6 million towards this project and the Queensland Government has contributed $2.4 million towards this project).


The business case is expected to commence in early 2023 and be completed by late 2024.
