The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is planning for a new transport corridor in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay regions between Beerburrum and Bald Hills.

With more people expected to be calling the region home, a proactive approach is required to prepare for future transport needs. The future Bruce Highway Western Alternative (BHWA) will provide a new alternative route to the Bruce Highway. It will help alleviate congestion and support future growth in the area.

Early planning and community consultation for the approximately 50-kilometre corridor is progressing in 4 stages and will identify land that needs to be protected for the future motorway.

Early planning for Stages 1 and 2 is complete, and 22 kilometres of the corridor from Moodlu to Narangba is protected for the future Moreton Motorway.

Early planning for Stage 3 between Narangba and Bald Hills is ongoing and early feedback on the study area continues to be invited.

Early planning for Stage 4 between Beerburrum and Moodlu is ongoing. Feedback was sought on possible corridor options from 30 November 2023 to 9 February 2024.

Timeframes for more detailed planning, design and construction are not known at this time and will depend on government priorities and future funding commitments.
