Bruce Highway to receive $4 billion upgrade

Bruce Highway to receive $4 billion upgrade

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has announced $4 billion in funding, over 10 years, to upgrade Queensland’s Bruce Highway.

The aim is to make the road more flood resistant and reduce traffic delays, with federal funding expected to be allocated in the May budget.

The state government has said it will spend $1 billion on the Bruce Highway, if the Commonwealth delivered the federal funding over the next decade.  

Ms Gillard says room has already been made in the budget for a continued investment in infrastructure.
