$70M Bells Creek Arterial Road now open

The $70 million Bells Creek Arterial Road project in Queensland is now complete, with traffic now flowing across the connection.

The project saw an eight-kilometre extension of Bells Creek Arterial Road, wrapping up works on the 11.9km link between the Bruce Highway and Caloundra Road.

The brand-new road provides a secondary access to the Bruce Highway for the 50,000 motorists that use Caloundra Road daily.

The new road will help to reduce travel times and provide a more efficient connection. The $70 million project also delivered significant economic benefits, including the creation of over 300 direct jobs and 550 indirect jobs over the life of the project. Sunshine Coast business Shadforth Civil Contractors were appointed to build the road.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the State Government was working to provide improved infrastructure across Queensland.

“The population of the Sunshine Coast is booming – one of the reasons our government put funding on the table to bring its construction forward from 2030,” Palaszczuk said.

“More than 50,000 drivers use Caloundra Road every day so this brand new road will give those people a crucial second access to the Bruce Highway.”

The $70 million project was co-funded by Stockland and the Queensland Government.
