The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking a planning project for future improvement to the flood immunity of the Bruce Highway at Goorganga Plains and Myrtle Creek.

The project will plan and preserve the road corridor and investigate options to improve accessibility, efficiency and safety of the highway in this location, especially during wet weather events.

A business case for preferred options is expected to be completed by early 2023.

The project is not currently funded for design or construction.
