$535 million Bruce Highway upgrades near completion in Cairns

In what has been the biggest infrastructure project delivered in Far North Queensland, 10.5 kilometres of Bruce Highway upgrades are set to open to traffic this week.

The $535 million Bruce Highway – Cairns Southern Access – Stage 3 – Edmonton to Gordonvale project  is nearing completion, with the brand new Menmuny Overpass to open this Saturday.

The upgrades are designed to provide a safer and smoother journey by connecting southern Cairns.

The Australian Government is also committed support for Cairns under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program. This includes $13.9 million across all four phases supporting Cairns Regional Council to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects.

A further $9.1 million will also go to the Roads for Recovery program, which supports construction and maintenance of local road infrastructure assets. This is in addition to over $900,000 for projects under the Black Spot Program, tackling high-risk road crash sites.
