Future stages map
This map shows the full study area from Beerburrum to north Brisbane.
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 north Brisbane.
This fast-growing region requires a proactive approach to ensure TMR are prepared for future transport needs. A new road will provide a ‘backbone’ for a transport network supporting growth in the area.
The future Bruce Highway Western Alternative (BHWA) will provide an alternative route to the Bruce Highway. It will help alleviate congestion and accommodate future growth in the area. Planning is a key initiative of the Australian and Queensland governments' jointly-funded North Brisbane Bruce Highway Western Alternative project.
Planning for the project will help to identify land that needs to be protected for the future road.
Stage 1 of the project looked at a section of a potential future corridor between Moodlu and Moorina, west of Caboolture.
Three options were investigated for the corridor through Caboolture West – an eastern, a central, and a western option.
TMR invited feedback on the concept options as part of the first phase of community consultation for this project. Submissions closed on 6 August 2021. A second phase of community consultation was undertaken between 12 November 2021 and 10 December 2021.
Thank you to everyone who attended the community drop-in sessions, provided comments on the interactive maps, completed the survey, provided feedback through a written submission, or shared their views over the phone. All feedback has been considered during this important phase of planning. We also thank those who have subscribed to receive project updates going forward so we can keep you updated as planning and consultation activities progress.
Timeframes for more detailed planning, design and construction of the BHWA project are unknown at this time and will depend on future funding commitments.
The central option has been identified as the preferred alignment for Stage 1 of the BHWA corridor.
Further details about the technical investigations and other considerations, including an overview of community feedback, is provided in the project newsletter. A detailed map showing the preferred central alignment corridor is provided below (under the Stage 1 tab).
TMR acknowledges the sensitive nature of planning for a new future road corridor and understands the community is highly invested in the outcomes of the planning.
TMR is now engaging with directly affected landowners within the central option alignment, with a view to protect Stage 1 of the corridor through Caboolture West in early 2022.
Consultation for Stage 1 has now closed, however TMR is still accepting early feedback on Stages 2, 3 and 4.
Consultation will be ongoing as planning for future stages of the project is progressed. Community consultation for Stage 2 is planned for the first half of 2022. The community will be updated when consultation opens.
