Billion dollar Bruce Highway project on Sunshine Coast is funded to break two bottlenecks

Did you hear the news? 

More than a billion dollars-worth of works is about to start on the Bruce Highway between Caloundra Interchange and the Sunshine Motorway.  This is a huge funded project approved in last year’s Federal budget, to be spent upgrading the Bruce Highway on the Sunshine Coast – in addition to what is already being spent on the Cooroy-Curra upgrade.  

It will include fixing the notorious Sunshine Motorway interchange and Caloundra interchange and will improve congestion by providing better local service roads connections to take one-third of the traffic
movements off the highway.  

Of course we all want to see more done to improve this critical road link to the Sunshine Coast and I will work with my State and Federal colleagues to lobby for this to happen.  But this $1.134 billion project is taking place over the next four years and it will make a huge difference to our region.
