The Bruce Highway Upgrade – Deception Bay Road Interchange project has reached another milestone this week with the upgraded northbound entry ramp opening to traffic.
The jointly funded, $163.3 million upgrade will improve the highway with works on track for completion early next year, weather and construction conditions permitting.
The project includes building two new parallel bridges over the Bruce Highway, upgrading two signalised intersections on Deception Bay Road, increasing the length and capacity of existing entry and exit ramps, and providing active transport facilities for people walking and riding.
The existing heavy vehicle weighbridge facility will also be relocated with a new facility accessible via the upgraded interchange.
Major construction on the $163.3 million, Deception Bay interchange upgrade started in November 2020.
The project is jointly funded with the Australian Government contributing $130.64 million and the Queensland Government contributing $32.66 million.
