Moorina to Narangba

The Stage 2 corridor runs approximately 15 kilometres between Moorina and Narangba, west of the emerging communities of Pine Valley and Morayfield South and the existing communities of Burpengary and Narangba.

The community provided feedback on alignment options for Stage 2, between 29 July 2022 and 9 September 2022. A second phase of community consultation on the preferred alignment was undertaken between 22 November 2022 and 12 February 2023.

The Stage 2 alignment was protected for a future state-controlled road in June 2023.

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

The preferred alignment continues south from the Stage 1 alignment towards Narangba and has the following key benefits:

  • allows construction of dedicated fauna passage infrastructure and mitigation measures to minimise the impact on environmentally sensitive areas
  • provides better crossing locations of significant waterways, minimising the impact on fish passage and simplified bridge construction
  • maintains local road connectivity by using over and underpasses
  • reinstates private property access by reconfiguring or providing new local roads where necessary
  • provides connections to the local road network via future interchanges with Forest Hills Drive and Raynbird Road
  • lessens the road footprint by following more suitable terrain, reducing the amount of earthworks and number of structures
  • reduces traffic on the Bruce Highway, preserving its function to service long-distance travel and move freight
  • reduces travel time and increases travel reliability on the surrounding road network
  • reduces impact to private property by using some land that is already owned by the Queensland Government.

Refinements were made to the preferred alignment following consultation with property owners along the corridor.

Building a HW 3 metres from Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park boundary. Please be ethically responsible and euthanise wildlife.

Sad to see TMR & MBRC committed to waste ALL our money on this 'solution'. No money left for real solutions.

In regards to the "future" fauna underpasses, why not just actually construct them now, rather than later? They shouldn't be delayed.

What will this do to traffic on already high-use arterial roads such as New Settlement Road and Oakey Flat Rd? Public Transport options?

Please plan for community amenities, such as sports fields, alongside the road - to buy out more land and give remaining residents a buffer.

TMR have noted the BHWA will alleviate 20% of the traffic off the Bruce Hwy, how can that justify the cost, there must be a better way

Why use existing roads as feeder roads when a new, purpose built one can be constructed through the new Kinma Valley.

This 'alternative' will not fix the traffic issues. We need a true ring road/bypass from south Brisbane to Sunshine Coast.

This project will not "fix" traffic. Building more Lanes Or building more highways never has and never will fix traffic.

You're forcing everyone to live in a shoebox is it any wonder the roads are so packed on the weekends.

This is not a Western Alternative its a band-aid fix for the poorly planned and scoped Bruce Highway. We are 30 Years behind other countries
