Bruce Highway (Caboolture to Sunshine Coast)

There is a current commitment by the Federal and Queensland governments to upgrade the Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway section of the Bruce Highway, and to undertake planning for priority upgrade works between the Pine River and Caloundra. The Sunshine Coast community is seeking a clear commitment to include the Caboolture to Caloundra Road six lane upgrade in the Bruce Highway Action Plan for delivery by 2025.

The upgrade will address safety concerns and significant congestion, assist in managing traffic flows and increase economic benefits for business and industry in improving connectivity and capacity. The largest share of the Sunshine Coast’s visitor market is derived from locations within a 3 hour drive of the region, making the six lane upgrade of the Bruce Highway potentially the most critical tourism infrastructure project for the Sunshine Coast.
