Words by Nick Crockford

Public consultation has opened on Stage 4 of the Bruce Highway Western Alternative (BHWA) from Beerburrum to Moodlu.

The northern-most of four sections of the proposed 50km BHWA will run from Beerburrum down to Bald Hills.

It is designed to take traffic off the Bruce Highway and service new growth areas such as Caboolture West, Morayfield South and Pine Valley.

Stage Four information sessions are being held in Wamuran (December 9 and January 16) and Beerburrum (December 12).
