One of the biggest road projects in the Moreton Bay Region will soon be finished.
The final upgraded ramps are now open at the Deception Bay Road interchange with the Bruce Highway in Burpengary.
It includes a 'loop' configuration of the northbound, and southbound entry ramps for motorists to the highway.
Transport and Main Roads (TMR) says the $162 million project will improve traffic efficiency and make access to the highway safer.
Opening the entry ramp loops marked another construction milestone for the upgrade, which is tracking to finish in coming months.
All four upgraded ramps at the Deception Bay Rd interchange upgrade are now open to traffic.
The first new bridge across the Bruce Highway opened last year and work is progressing on the second.
There will also be two signalised intersections on Deception Bay Rd and facilities for people walking and riding.
“I look forward to the milestones we’ll hit in the coming months, thanks to the hard work of teams on the ground,” State member for Bancroft Chris Whiting said.
Shane King, State Member for Kurwongbah, added: “I’d also like to thank locals for their patience as the roadworks have been happening.
“I know the reduced speed limits, lane and highway entrance changes have been at times frustrating, but I’m pleased to say there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
The upgrade is funded by the Australian Government $130.64 million and Queensland Government $32.66 million.
Major construction started in November 2020. For more information, click here
