The $500 million Haughton River Floodplain upgrade on the Bruce Highway south of Townsville is surging towards completion, following the final traffic switch recently.

State Member for Thuringowa Aaron Harper said the final stage of the project would see the intersection of Woodstock-Giru Road and the Bruce completed.

“Drivers have now been using the new bridge for about a month and are already reaping the benefits of a smoother, safer drive,” Mr Harper said.

“It’s great to see big projects like this supporting local jobs and industries – providing training opportunities for the next generation.

“This is a big win for locals now and well into the future.”

The $514.34 million Haughton River Floodplain Upgrade project is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments on an 80:20 basis, representing commitments of $411.47 million and $102.87 million respectively.

The project is being delivered by The Infrastructure Group (TIG), a joint venture between Bielby, BMD Constructions, JF Hull Holdings and Alben Operations, on behalf of the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Key features include:

  • The Horseshoe Lagoon, Pink Lily and Haughton River bridges have been replaced with new, wider, higher-level bridges.
  • New crossings over Healey’s Lagoon and the Reed Beds. 
  • 13.5km of the Bruce Highway upgraded, in some areas on a new alignment.
  • Two highway overpasses of the nearby cane tramway network
  • Rural intersections within the project area upgraded to improve safety.

Federal Member for Dawson George Christensen said the project was due to be complete later this year.

“North Queenslanders are all too familiar with flooding closing the Bruce Highway over the Reed Beds area, with this section of highway typically closing every couple of years during the wet season, forcing transport operators and the travelling public to wait for waters to recede,” Mr Christensen said.

“Traffic across the national network is now using a safer, more flood resilient crossing of the Reed Beds area.”
