Caboolture West

Early planning investigated three potential corridor options between Moodlu and Moorina through Caboolture West. The central option was identified as the preferred alignment for Stage 1 of the Bruce Highway Western Alternative (BHWA).

The central alignment starts from the D’Aguilar Highway and travels south towards Caboolture River Road, staying close to the existing power easement.

The Stage 1 alignment was protected for a future state-controlled road in June 2022.

Timeframes for more detailed planning, design and construction of the BHWA are unknown at this time and will depend on government priorities and future funding commitments.

The preferred alignment for Stage 1

The central option was selected based on a number of significant technical merits, including the following key high-level considerations:

  • impacts fewer existing properties when compared to the eastern option
  • enables better crossings of various waterways, reducing the corridor’s environmental and flooding impacts – additionally, it will not impact Sheepstation Creek Conservation Park
  • enables connectivity to the planned higher order road network within the Caboolture West Structure Plan – it supports high level access to the proposed town centre, key enterprise and employment areas, and access to and from the D’Aguilar Highway
  • has flatter terrain, meaning there is less need for bridge structures and less material will need to be removed during construction, reducing overall cost when compared to other options.
