Rockhampton Ring Road

Building Queensland is leading the development of a detailed business case for the Rockhampton Ring Road Project, working in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

The business case is investigating the construction of a new western link of the Bruce Highway to the west of Rockhampton, with a new Fitzroy River crossing and key linkages into the city at the Capricorn Highway, West Rockhampton Connector Road, Rockhampton-Ridgelands Road, Alexandra Street and Yaamba Road (Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road). The project will integrate with major infrastructure already completed, including Yeppen North and Yeppen South, and projects in delivery including the Rockhampton Northern Access Upgrade and Capricorn Highway—Rockhampton to Gracemere Duplication Project.

The project is expected to improve freight efficiency, safety, flood resilience and job opportunities, as well as improve connectivity between key employment and residential growth areas of Rockhampton.

The business case is expected to be completed in mid-2020.
