Bruce Highway (Townsville - Ingham); Cattle and Frances Creeks; Flood Immunity Upgrade from Pennas Road to Pomona Road
Value of project
$100M - $250M
Construct bridge/s and approaches.
On this 5km section, about 4km suffers from frequent and prolonged flooding every year. In addition to affecting inter-regional freight and passenger trips, this flooding cuts off Ingham from Townsville which is the main industrial and urban centre in North Queensland. Also, Cattle Creek Bridge is very narrow which is a safety issue.
Construct a new high-level bridge over Cattle and Frances Creeks and higher flood immunity road along this 5km section.
This proposed project will improve flood immunity, safety and network efficiency on this section of the Bruce Highway.
