$12 Million Investment for the Bruce Highway
The Queensland Government committed a $12 million investment to resurface about 15km of busy highway between Pine River Bridge and the Sunshine Coast, with works already underway. These works support the Bruce Highway Upgrade Program which is Queensland’s largest road infrastructure program. In addition, the works will be completed in seven key locations to improve the road surface conditions.
The programmed resurfacing of key arterial roads are important for extending road durability in addition to providing safer driving conditions for people travelling north of Brisbane. The Queensland Government noted that the major infrastructure upgrade is required to support growing populations Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast which are forecast to grow more than twenty per cent over the next ten years.
The key locations are Murrumba Downs (near Dohles Rocks Road), Elimbah (near Pumicestone Road), Beerburrum (near Red Road), Coochin Creek (near Johnston Road) and Parklands (near Nambour Connection Road), Forest Glen (near Mons Road) and Rosemount (near Petrie Creek Road).
Works have just begun and will be progressively completed throughout the 2018-19 financial year. The Queensland Government noted the project would be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible, with the least amount of disruption to traffic, residents and businesses. Works will be conducted at night, from Sunday to Thursday to minimise the impact as much as possible.
