The Bruce Highway Queensland

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has awarded the design concept contract for the Bruce Highway Tiaro Bypass in Queensland, a project that is expected to support around  490 direct jobs over the project lifecycle.

Arup and SMEC have been awarded the detailed design contract for the four-lane bypass.

The Federal and Queensland governments are investing a total of $336 million in the project, with the Federal Government providing $268.8 million.

The draft concept design includes nine kilometres of new four-lane highway, a concrete centre median barrier, interchanges north and south of Tiaro and improved highway flood immunity.

Arup and SMEC will now work with TMR to deliver:

  • Further detailed investigations including environmental, hydraulics, noise, geotechnical, pavement, traffic and safety assessments
  • Development of detailed road and bridge design drawings including drainage, lighting, signage, property accesses and public utility relocations
  • Preparation of detailed cost estimates, construction drawings and contract and procurement documents for the construction phase

    I think the Bruce hwy from Cairns to Rockhampton is far more important. The whole Bruce highway is a disgrace
