Bruce Highway – Cairns Southern Access Corridor Stage 3 (Edmonton to Gordonvale)

The 9-kilometre section of the Bruce Highway from Edmonton to Gordonvale experiences significant delays during morning and evening peaks and has a high crash rate.

  • four-lanes between Edmonton and Gordonvale
  • 4 kilometres of new two-lane carriageway
