Bruce Highway: Deception Bay Road Interchange Construction Details
The scope of the project is as follows:
- construction of parallel bridges over the Bruce Highway
- improvements to the capacity and length of on and off-ramps
- upgrades to Deception Bay Road signalised intersections
It is estimated that evening peak-hour traffic speeds at the interchange will be increased from 23km/h to 50km/h by 2031. Additionally, projected traffic accidents are estimated to be reduced by over 40%. The key benefits of the project are improvements to freight transit and reduction in congestion levels.
Bruce Highway: Deception Bay Road Interchange Jobs & Community Plan
The Bruce Highway is a pivotal north-south connection between Cairns and Brisbane along the east coast of Queensland and represents a segment of the National Land Transport Network. The Deception Bay Road Interchange is located around 12 km south of Caboolture and 35 km north of the Brisbane CBD. An important connection point for both freight between Moreton Bay and Brisbane and the Moreton Bay resident commuters as well, the interchange experiences significant congestion during peak-hour.
With off-ramps creating congestion on the Bruce Highway, there is also a safety concern at the interchange. With the Moreton Bay and surrounding areas expected to see continued population growth, the demands on the road network are likely to be heightened in the coming years.
