Proposal Stage of Development: Preliminary business case underway
Planned Stage End Date: Q 3 2019
The Rockhampton Ring Road aims to resolve a number of challenges for transport infrastructure through Rockhampton, including safety, efficiency and reliability.
The proposed project includes the preservation and investigation of a ring road and rail corridor, including works to divert the Bruce Highway between the Capricorn Highway and the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road.
The project benefits include:
- improving safety and capacity issues on this section of the Bruce Highway
- reducing congestion, improving network efficiency and reducing travel times through Rockhampton
- improving network functionality, accessibility and regional capacity to support future development in the Rockhampton region
- improving the reliability of freight and private vehicle trips by reducing the potential for severance of the Bruce Highway during flood events.
