Infrastructure investment

Transport is a major contributor to economic outcomes. The transport sector represents 4.4 percent of GDP, and almost half of Australia’s major infrastructure construction is undertaken within the transport sector.

Investment in and delivery of publicly owned transport infrastructure is the responsibility of all three levels of government. The Australian Government has committed over $75 billion for the next 10 years to transport infrastructure across Australia. This investment is assisting in building more liveable cities, enabling better-connected regional communities, driving key productivity improvements and creating safer roads.

NICS will continue to be updated as specific project information and commitments are announced by the Australian, state and territory governments.

Construct to new sealed two-lane standard. Stage One proposed to construct a two-lane rural highway of approximately 11.3 kilometres in length between Stockroute Road and the intersection of the Bruce Highway and Bald Hill Road, which will allow traffic to bypass Mackay. The completed Ring Road will address the capacity limitations and accident risks of the existing route and improve the movement of freight traffic. This project will reduce the frequency of hazardous loads travelling through Mackay's city centre and significantly improve the operation of local, regional and national road networks.

Construct bridge/s and approaches. The Haughton River Bridge project will see construction of a higher level bridge and road approaches to improve flood immunity at the Haughton River. Safety will be further enhanced with the elimination of two at-grade rail crossings at the Bruce Highway intersections with Woodstock Giru Road and Hodel Road, south of Haughton. This proposed project will improve flood immunity, safety and network efficiency on this section of the Bruce Highway.
