Planning for the Mareeba Heavy Vehicle Bypass started more than 30 years ago. These activities resulted in a proposed alignment for a bypass on the western side of Mareeba.

In May 2022, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) started a new planning project to confirm the alignment of the bypass and identify a viable delivery strategy. This planning is necessary to allow TMR to seek funding for design and construction of the bypass.

Have your say

TMR sought feedback from the Mareeba community and road users for input on traffic issues in Mareeba and on the proposed bypass, which will be used to inform the project planning outcomes.

Submissions closed 27 February 2023.
