Feedback sought over Bruce Highway options

The community is invited to share its thoughts for stage two of a major new transport corridor in the Moreton Bay region, west of the Bruce Highway. 

Two options are being presented for both the northern and southern sections of the alignment.

The new road will increase capacity across the network and reduce congestion and long-term reliance on the Bruce Highway.

This project forms part of the $20 million North Brisbane Bruce Highway Western Alternative project with $10 million each committed by the Australian and Queensland governments.

The future Bruce Highway Western Alternative will be about 60 kilometres and connect Steve Irwin Way, Beerburrum with northern Brisbane.

It is being planned in stages.

The stage one corridor has been identified from Moodlu to Moorina within the Caboolture West development area.

Stage two from Moorina to Narangba is the subject of the current community consultation.

This section is about 15 kilometres and located west of the fast-emerging communities of Kinma Valley and Morayfield South.

Determining a preferred alignment and locations for future interchanges is critical to support future growth in the area.

Planning for stage three from Narangba to Kallangur, and stage four from Beerburrum to Moodlu, will be progressed when stage two has been finalised. 

The corridor is not being planned to specifically get motorists to the University of Sunshine Coast Moreton Bay campus at Petrie.

 The corridor serves a more strategic purpose in providing an alternate route to the Bruce Highway and to help alleviate congestion and accommodate future growth in the region.

Transport and Main Roads will keep the community informed on planning and consultation for these stages.
