NEED

The existing section of the Bruce Highway from Pine River to the Caloundra Road Interchange lacks capacity to accommodate current peak demand, resulting in significant congestion and potential increases in motor vehicle incidents. This section of the Bruce Highway is also prone to flooding.

PROPOSAL

The proposal is investigating flood, safety and capacity improvements spanning the 60 kilometre section of the Bruce Highway from Pine River to the Caloundra Road Interchange.

A number of options are being considered including:

  • non-asset (e.g. improved signage and variable messaging)
  • improvements to existing assets (e.g. flood immunity, safety and operational improvements)
  • new asset (e.g. new road corridor).
