Construction of Townsville Ring Road; Section Four. The Townsville Ring Road Section Four (TRR4) project is a proposed new infrastructure on the northern outskirts of Townsville. Once constructed, the link will become part of the Bruce Highway (Brisbane - Cairns Corridor). TRR4 will complete the overall 20km Townsville Ring Road link, which has been developed in stages since 2005, and is part of the National Network route through Townsville. TRR4 will replace the interim and existing National Network routes: Shaw Road and Bruce Highway (Shaw Road - Mt Low Parkway). The project will connect to the existing National Network via: - the Townsville Ring Road Sections Two and Three in the south, and - the Bruce Highway to the north (in the vicinity of Mt Low Parkway - Veale's Road). The project provides for 10km of two-lane, undivided carriageway. It is a limited access route and will include two intersections only, southern (grade-separated) and northern (at grade) connections. The project will include appropriate bridging and drainage structures to provide Q50 flood immunity. The scope also includes appropriate design standards for a Higher Mass Limits (HML) route and a 110 km/hr operating vehicle speed. The project will protect the National Network’s primary function (through traffic) by: - protecting the link from uncontrolled local traffic, maximising the economic life of the overall Ring Road link, improving freight efficiency (for through and Port freight), - providing a more direct route for inter-regional freight and an alternative northern access for Port-related freight, support economic growth, - minimising disruptions to business and industry, providing flood immunity at agreed corridor standards, meeting contemporary safety and design standards, improving travel-time reliability, improving amenity and safety (by reducing Port freight on arterial and local road networks), improving separation and managing of traffic types.

Widen from four to six lanes. This project involves the widening of a 16km section known as Gateway Motorway North, extending from Nudgee Road (northern end of the Gateway Upgrade Project) to Bracken Ridge and rehabilitation work from Bracken Ridge to Bruce Highway. The project includes the construction of an additional northbound traffic lane between the Sandgate Road Interchange and the existing five lane section to the south of the Deagon Deviation. The upgrade of the Gateway Motorway North project aims to increase efficiency, assist in reducing congestion and improve safety for all road users.

Construct bridge/s and approaches. This project is Stage Two of a multi-stage master-plan for access between the M1 and the Coomera area. The project will deliver the following: - a new structure to the north of the existing structure over the M1 for eastbound traffic, - minor modifications to the spill through on the western abutment and new line marking, - replacement of the existing roundabouts on the east and west with signalised intersections, - new loop road under the Foxwell Road overpass bridge connecting to the western intersection, - new connection from the motorway service centre to the northbound M1 on-ramp, - realignment and extension of northbound on-ramp, and - realignment of the southbound off-ramp to intersect with the Old Pacific Highway (service road). This project will deliver additional service capacity improving travel time, reduce occurrence of rear end crashes on exit ramps, provide connectivity to the V1 Cycleway and improve safety for pedestrian and cycle accessibility.

Construct deviation - sealed standard. This project involves the design of a new alignment for the Eton Range crossing. Field works are being undertaken to provide design inputs including survey, geotechnical, environmental and archaeological investigations. The realignment is aimed at improving safety, accessibility and freight efficiency on the Peak Downs Highway.

Gold Coast Light Rail (Stage 2)

This project is under construction

Gold Coast Rapid Transit Parklands Drive - Helensvale Rail Station Stage 2 will connect the existing light rail system at Southport to heavy rail at the Helensvale station. The 7.3km route runs from Helensvale heavy rail station adjacent to the Gold Coast Line, then adjacent to the Smith Street Motorway to connect with Stage 1 at the Gold Coast University Hospital light rail station. The Stage 2 alignment uses existing road and rail corridors, reducing impacts on the community and the environment. The alignment extends from Helensvale station adjacent to the Gold Coast Line, then adjacent to the Smith Street Motorway to connect with Stage 1 of the light rail at the Gold Coast University Hospital. With the opening of Stage 2, public transport users will not only have a seamless, one-transfer journey between the Gold Coast and Brisbane, they will also have the option of stopping at any of the 19 light rail stations with bus connection at key activity centres along the corridor between Helensvale and Broadbeach.

Construct to new sealed four lane standard - This project involves the construction of 41km bypass road to the north of Toowoomba, running from the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east, to the Gore Highway at Athol in the west. Key features of the project include: - four lanes (two lanes each way) from Warrego Highway East interchange to Warrego Highway West; - grade separated interchanges at Warrego Highway East interchange, Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road and Gore Highway; - a grade separated connection to Mort Street; - 30 metre cutting at the top of the Range will be constructed as an alternative to the tunnel solution as detailed in the reference design to allow all heavy vehicles including dangerous goods and over dimensional vehicles to use the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing; - an 800 metre viaduct constructed over the existing Queensland Rail line; and - continuity of the New England Highway through a new bridge over the cutting. The project will deliver the following benefits to the region and the state: - up to 1800 full-time jobs during the construction and maintenance of the project; - improved road and driver safety; - reduced travel times across the Range by up to 40 minutes for heavy commercial vehicles; - avoiding up to 18 sets of traffic lights; - relieved pressure on Toowoomba's local roads by redirecting trucks away from Toowoomba's Central Business District; - increased freight efficiencies; and - enhance the liveability of the Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley areas.

Construct to new sealed four lane standard. This is Section C of the Cooroy-Curra upgrade which involves the construction of a four lane 9.5km road corridor east of the Bruce Highway plus 1.8km of safety improvements to the existing alignment in advance of the four-laning works. This project will see the realignment of the Bruce Highway between Traveston Interchange at the end of Section B and Keefton Road. This project will meet the strategic transport needs of the Sunshine Coast and Gympie regions into the future.
