Work has started on the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of Gympie Road and Iindah Road intersection in Tinana, Queensland.
The intersection upgrade forms part of the $6.7 billion, 10 year Bruce Highway Upgrade Program.
Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Darren Chester, said the upgrade will improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
“The project has been an important step towards delivering a safer, more efficient Bruce Highway for motorists and industry.”
The new Tinana interchange opened to traffic in August 2017 and all interchange works were formally completed the following month.
Federal Member for Wide Bay, Llew O’Brien, said the new signalised intersection will cater for the additional motorists who are now using the new southbound off-ramp to Iindah Rd West, after the previous off-ramp to Gympie at the old interchange was removed.
SGQ will deliver the works, which were expected to be completed by April 2018.
