Tenders have been released to market for works on the $95 million Mount Lindesay Highway in Queensland, with the detailed design for the new south bound bridge now finalised.

Tenders for the construction of upgrade works on the Mount Lindesay Highway between Johanna Street and South Street in Jimboomba will deliver safety improvements, ease congestion, and reduce travel times by widening the highway from two to four lanes, including construction of a new south bound bridge over the disused rail corridor.

The construction tender process is expected to take approximately three months and major construction is expected to start in late 2024 and expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.

A construction tender was released to market in early 2023 but then withdrawn pending the outcome of the Australian Government Infrastructure Investment Program Review.

Early works on the project were completed in 2023. The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has a 10-year forward plan (2018-2028) for the Mount Lindesay Highway, with construction projects being delivered as funding becomes available.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Bart Mellish said the works would help to increase the efficiency of transport in and around the area.

“This upgrade will not only support population growth in the area but provide freight vehicles with a more reliable journey on this very important B double route,” Mellish said.

Pedestrian and bike riders will also benefit with new active transport shared paths being installed and upgraded across the scope.
