The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is investigating options to improve safety and reduce the number of fatal and serious injury crashes.

This planning project aims to identify and develop solutions to address safety issues on the Gore Highway and Toowoomba-Athol Road, between Wyreema-Athol Road and James Street in Toowoomba.

This section of road varies from a two-lane rural highway to a heavily trafficked four-lane urban highway. Safety improvements will aim to benefit all road users including pedestrians, bike riders and motorists.

Have your say

As part of the planning process, TMR asked the community about safety issues on the Gore Highway and Toowoomba-Athol Road.

Hearing the experiences of road users is important to help TMR understand local safety issues and inform the development of appropriate safety improvements.

Upgrade options are prioritised based on their ability to deliver the greatest road safety benefits, reduce fatal and serious injury crashes and provide a consistent experience for road users on state-controlled roads in urban environments.

Priority safety improvements options will be included in the business case and put forward for future construction funding.
