New England Highway realignment

As part of constructing the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project, the New England Highway at Mount Kynoch was permanently realigned.


What's involved?

Works involved:

  • permanently realigning one kilometre (dual-carriageway) of the New England Highway. The realigned New England Highway will improve road safety for motorists with a wider central median and by increasing the line of vision
  • constructing a dual arch bridge to enable the TSRC to pass 30m below the highway. The new bridges will carry two lanes of traffic (two lanes northbound and two lanes southbound) on the New England Highway.
  • constructing two protected U-turn areas.
