Moorina–Narangba

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 two viable 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.

Themes raised during community consultation included:

  • the future corridor location and need
  • the future location for connections to the existing local road network
  • land and property impacts
  • lifestyle and amenity impacts
  • environmental and cultural considerations
  • planning considerations including population growth, existing and future land-use, traffic congestion, public and active transport.

TMR is now prioritising liaising with landowners identified as being directly impacted by the preferred alignment. Community members are also invited to information sessions to view project displays, provide feedback, and meet with the project team. Information sessions can be booked in 45-minute timeslots. Book via the 'Information sessions' section on the right sidebar.

The Stage 2 corridor is expected to be protected for a future State-controlled road 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 combines refined elements of the options that were presented to the community for consultation and considers feedback received and further technical work. It more closely aligns with Option 2 in the northern section and Option 4 in the southern section.

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 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.

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.

CLF says:

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

State government need to make land of equivalent amenity available to displaced resident. People have worked very hard to acquire them.

JLangbridge says:

TMR must protect the amenity of the rural areas that the road passes through. e.g. sound barriers, visual/ vegetation buffers

Add a train line down the centre of the highway to create an effective public transport corridor, Perth/WA has similar ideas that work great

jfors says:

Don't put a highway in without any mass public transport options. The highway will only destroy everyone's habitat and lifestyle!

How is it that to attend a meeting we have to book tickets thru a USA based system? This is a Qld Govt Dept? A better system is a must!

It looks like the traffic filters out eventually to Dohles Rocks Road, it and the gateway will be a huge bottleneck - what is the plan?
