The Stage 2 corridor runs approximately 16 kilometres between Moorina and Narangba, west of the emerging communities of Pine Valley and Morayfield South and the existing communities of Burpengary and Narangba.

Early planning for Stage 2 is complete and the preferred alignment and corridor requirements have been identified.

The community provided feedback on alignment options for Stage 2, between 29 July 2022 and 9 September 2022. This feedback helped inform the preferred alignment alongside a broad range of technical investigations.

A second phase of community consultation on the preferred alignment was undertaken between 22 November 2022 and 12 February 2023.

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback.

Now consultation has closed, TMR will complete a review of feedback received before progressing protection activities for the Stage 2 corridor for a future State-controlled road. This is expected to be finalised by mid-2023.

The preferred alignment for Stage 2

The preferred alignment continues south from the Caboolture River towards Narangba. It allows for future connections with Forest Hills Drive and Raynbird Road, providing accessibility to the existing communities of Morayfield, Burpengary, and Narangba as well as the emerging communities of Pine Valley and Morayfield South. Another connection is planned north of Caboolture River Road which lies within the Caboolture West Structure Plan area.

The preferred alignment combined refined elements of the options that were presented to the community for consultation between 29 July 2022 and 9 September 2022 and considers feedback received and further technical work.

It has the following key benefits:

  • allows construction of dedicated fauna passage infrastructure and mitigation measures to minimise impact on environmentally sensitive areas
  • provides better crossing locations of significant waterways in the area minimising the impact on fish passage and simplified bridge construction
  • maintains connectivity of local roads the corridor crosses 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.

Preferred alignment map

To display the Stage 2 preferred alignment presented for community consultation between 22 November 2022 and 12 February 2023, online it has been split into two sections.

Section 1 starts at the northern end of the alignment near Caboolture West and heads south towards the emerging community of Pine Valley. Section 2 continues south from Pine Valley to the end of the Stage 2 preferred alignment at Browns Road, Narangba.

This map is indicative and subject to minor refinement following consultation with the community and directly impacted property owners and reviewing feedback received.

Have your say

Community consultation on the Stage 2 preferred alignment closed on 12 February 2023.

Community feedback will continue to be an important consideration to understand key constraints, opportunities and concerns for future planning.

What would you like TMR to consider in future project phases for Stage 2?

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
