new higher viaduct

This project, wholly financed with federal funds, is part of the upgrades planned by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads for the section of the Bruce Highway between the towns of Caboolture and Caloundra.

Prior to the construction phase, more than 50,000 vehicles used to cross the interchange every day. The clearance between the existing viaduct and the road was just 4.5 metres, which meant that the heaviest goods vehicles had to divert from the Bruce Highway.

The project involved construction of a new and higher viaduct over the highway, with features that included a pedestrian route and a cycle lane, the extension and straightening of the four entry and exit ramps, upgrading the junctions with local roads, and construction of pedestrian and cyclist installations. Construction of the viaduct was completed in 2015.
