Works have started on the upgrade of the Mount Lindesay Highway between Stoney Camp Road and Chambers Flat Road.
The $75 million project will widen the highway from two to four lanes, build new northbound and southbound bridges across Norris Creek, install safety upgrades and improve fauna connectivity and protection.
This is all about getting Queenslanders home sooner and safer while we create more jobs during this difficult economic time. This investment is part of our $110 billion, 10-year infrastructure plan, which is laying the foundations for the nation’s ongoing recovery from COVID-19.
I welcome the start of the upgrades and new safety measures on the Mount Lindesay Highway which will provide twin benefits of less time in the car and a safer road. The benefits flowing from this Government’s infrastructure investments will leave a lasting legacy that will serve us all into the future.
The project is jointly funded, with the Australian and Queensland governments each committing $37.5 million.
