Building Queensland Role: Assisting with Preliminary Business Case
Estimated Cost of Delivery: To be determined*

The existing section of the Bruce Highway from Pine River to Caboolture/Bribie Island Road lacks capacity to accommodate current morning and afternoon peak demand, resulting in congestion and an increase in motor vehicle incidents. This section of the Bruce Highway is also prone to flooding.
The proposal for the 60-kilometre section of the Bruce Highway from Pine River to Caloundra Road is being progressed as a number of packages. Flood mitigation, road safety and capacity improvements will be investigated for this section of the highway.
The Pine River to Caboolture Road Package 3 (Stage 1 and Stage 2) includes upgrades to existing infrastructure to improve flood immunity and new assets, such as building additional lanes.
This package is expected to:
- improve transport system reliability and efficiency
- improve safety outcomes through a reduction in the number and severity of crashes on the highway
- improve flood immunity
- support economic growth in the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions by more efficient transport.
