Features

The key features of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing include:

  • four lanes from Warrego Highway East Interchange to Warrego Highway West
  • grade separated interchanges at Warrego Highway West, Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road and the Gore Highway
  • grade separated connections to Mort Street and Boundary Street
  • an approximately 30m deep cutting at the top of the Toowoomba Range, to ensure all classes of dangerous goods and heavy vehicles can be accommodated
  • an 800m long viaduct built east from the New England Highway, crossing over the existing Queensland Rail line
  • continuity of the New England Highway through bridges over the cutting.

In order to deliver the 41km road project, works will be undertaken across three areas: east, central and west. Each area features major construction works critical to the overall road design.

Boundary Street, Cranley to Gore Highway, Athol

Central
Mount Kynoch to Boundary Street, Cranley

East
Warrego Highway, Helidon Spa to the New England Highway, Mt Kynoch
