The Queensland Government is seeking community feedback for the second stage of a major new transport corridor in the Moreton Bay region, west of the Bruce Highway.
The project forms part of the $20 million North Brisbane Bruce Highway Western Alternative project, which is jointly funded on a 50/50 basis between the Federal and Queensland governments.
The roughly 60-kilometre Bruce Highway Western Alternative will connect Steve Irwin Way, Beerburrum with northern Brisbane, and is expected to increase capacity across the network and reduce long-term reliance on the Bruce Highway.
The stage one corridor has been identified from Moodlu to Moorina within the Caboolture West development area.
The second stage will be a roughly 15-kilometre section from Moorina to Narangba, located west of the fast-emerging communities of Kinma Valley and Morayfield South.
This stage is now open for community consultation, with two options being presented for both the northern and southern sections of the alignment.
Mark Bailey, Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads, said the project would help future-proof the Moreton Bay lifestyle, and encouraged the community to have their say.
“Community consultation is an important part of major projects like this to ensure we are delivering the best outcome for residents,” he said.
“I encourage locals to have a look at the plans, jump online to provide feedback or drop into one of the face-to-face sessions.”
Planning for stages three and four will be progressed once stage two has been finalised.
The community can provide feedback online, or attend drop-in sessions in August to speak with the project team.
