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.

Queensland Government

Widen from four to six lanes. This project involves the widening of a 11.3 kilometre section of the Gateway Motorway, extending from Nudgee Road (northern end of the Gateway Upgrade Project) to Bracken Ridge and pavement rehabilitation and safety works from Bracken Ridge to the Wyampa Road Overpass. The project also includes the construction of new interchanges at Nudgee and Deagon, construction of a new northbound carriageway to remove the Deagon Deviation traffic from the Gateway Motorway, and construction of a full length shared use path with connectivity to local active transport networks. The Gateway Upgrade North project aims to increase efficiency, assist in reducing congestion and improve safety for all road users.

Construct to new sealed four-lane standard. This project involves the construction of a 41 kilometre bypass road to the north of Toowoomba, running from the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east, to the Gore Highway at Athol in the west. Key features of the project include: - four lanes (two lanes each way) from the Warrego Highway East interchange to the Warrego Highway West; - grade-separated interchanges at the Warrego Highway East interchange, Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road and the Gore Highway; - a grade-separated connection to Mort Street; - 30 metre cutting at the top of the Range will be constructed as an alternative to the tunnel solution, as detailed in the reference design to allow all heavy vehicles including dangerous goods and over dimensional vehicles to use the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing; - an 800 metre viaduct constructed over the existing Queensland Rail line; and - continuity of the New England Highway through a new bridge over the cutting. The project will deliver the following benefits to the region and the state: - up to 1800 full-time jobs during the construction and maintenance of the project; - improved road and driver safety; - reduced travel times across the Range by up to 40 minutes for heavy commercial vehicles; - avoiding up to 18 sets of traffic lights; - relieved pressure on Toowoomba's local roads by redirecting trucks away from Toowoomba's Central Business District; - increased freight efficiencies; and - enhance the liveability of the Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley areas.

Bruce Highway six-laning. Staged upgrade of the existing Sunshine Motorway and Caloundra Road section of the Bruce Highway to a six lane motorway with improved interchanges, service roads and removal of all at-grade intersections. The primary objective of the project is to improve safety; however, the project will deliver a wide range of benefits to the transport network and community, impacting on economic efficiency and transport user safety.

Rocklea to Darra Stage 1, Package 1 (Granard Road to Oxley Road). Stage 1 is the 3 kilometre upgrade of the Ipswich Motorway, between Granard Road, Rocklea and Oxley Road, Oxley. Stage 1 includes: - upgrading the motorway from four to six lanes; - higher bridges over Oxley Creek, including seven new bridges; - new southern service road connection from Rocklea industrial precinct to the Oxley commercial and retail areas; and - new traffic signals at the Suscatand Street intersection. Benefits include: - Reliability – improved traffic flow and reduced congestion creating more reliable, consistent travel times. - Safety – upgraded road safety on the motorway with improved sight distances, safer access to and from the motorway. - Connectivity – enhanced local connectivity for all road users, pedestrians and cyclists with new service road connectors, reducing the need for local trips on the motorway. - Flood immunity – improving the motorway’s flood immunity by constructing higher bridges over Oxley Creek.

Duplicate from two to four lanes. Duplicate a four kilometre section from two to four lanes between Charlton (Leeson Road) and Kingsthorpe (Kingsthorpe - Haden Road), west of Toowoomba. The works include the Kingsthorpe-Haden Road grade-separation. This project will extend the four lane highway from the Stage 1 project, west of Charlton, a further four kilometres westward to Kingsthorpe. This project will deliver improvements to road safety and reduce delays on the western approach to Toowoomba.

Construct bridge/s and approaches. On this five kilometre section, about four kilometres 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 5 kilometre section. This proposed project will improve flood immunity, safety and network efficiency on this section of the Bruce Highway.
