MORE THAN $7 MILLION FOR BETTER BRUCE HIGHWAY

14th April 2022

The Palaszczuk Government is ramping up investment in the Bruce Highway with more than $7 million of works to resurface 12 kilometres between Ninderry and Cooroy.

Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton said it was funded through the Palaszczuk Government’s
record $27.5 billion four-year roads and transport plan, which is creating 24,000 jobs and
driving Queensland’s economic recovery from COVID-19.

“This will make this section of the highway safer, once works are complete,” Mr Skelton said.

"Resurfacing plays a key role in maintaining our road network to improve its safety and
resilience.

“We know how vital the Bruce Highway is to the wider network and I'm sure the 27,000 motorists who travel this section each day will appreciate the result.

"The resurfacing is expected to take about four months, weather and construction conditions
permitting.”

Mr Skelton thanked the community in advance for its patience during the important works.

"To minimise disruptions, all work will be carried out at night, with occasional weekend work
if needed,” he said.

"We will also be resurfacing the Eumundi-Noosa Road off-ramp and the Bunya Road
roundabout at Eumundi and detours will be in place.

"Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, follow the directions of signs and traffic
control, and allow additional travel time."

This month, crews will begin resurfacing northbound from just north of the Ninderry Road overpass, Ninderry, to just south of the Cooroy Connection Road (Myall Street) interchange,
Cooroy.

Other works on the Bruce Highway on the coast included resurfacing works on approximately
five kilometres, from the Cooroy Connection Road interchange at Cooroy to the Eumundi Noosa Road interchange at Eumundi, completed in 2021, and other resurfacing works on
approximately eight kilometres between Bli Bli Road interchange and Eumuni-Noosa Road
interchange.
