Project description

The Rockhampton Northern Access Upgrade currently under construction by the Rockhampton Northern Access Joint Venture (McIlwain Civil Engineering Pty Ltd and SGQ Pty Ltd) incorporates a duplication of the Bruce Highway north of Rockhampton and will cater for increasing traffic demand for adjacent industrial, commercial and residential developments and provide amenity, access and road safety outcomes for all road users.

The project also includes upgrades to the Bruce Highway, north of Rockhampton and will include provisions for cyclist and pedestrian traffic between Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road and Ramsay Creek.

The $121 million Rockhampton Northern Access Upgrade will widen the Bruce Highway to four lanes between Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road intersection and Ramsay Creek, north of Rockhampton.

When combined with a $36 million Bruce Highway Safety Package project at Terranova Drive, the full scope of works will result in the duplication of 4.9km of highway through the northern suburbs of Parkhurst and Glenlee.

Rockhampton Northern Access Upgrade Project Manager Mark Stone provides an update on the projects progress and how we have adapted to COVID-19.
