The Bruce Highway is a major north-south transport route along Queensland’s east coast. The Bruce Highway serves an important role as the primary route for inter-regional general and freight traffic between Brisbane and Cairns. This national highway is progressively being upgraded under the Bruce Highway Upgrade Program (BHUP) which aims to improve safety, flood resilience and capacity along the Bruce Highway.
This project, Dohles Rocks Road Northern Connections (DNC), forms part of the BHUP and aims to provide a staged upgrade towards an ultimate whole-of-network solution for the Bruce Highway and its surrounding road network. The project consists of a stretch of the Bruce Highway from the Dohles Rocks Road interchange to Anzac Avenue interchange. It includes new north-facing ramps at Dohles Rocks Road interchange and the addition of fourth lanes onto each carriageway of the Bruce Highway.
