East

The East work front for the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing extends through the Lockyer Valley to Toowoomba, from the Warrego Highway at Helidon Spa to the New England Highway at Mount Kynoch.


To construct the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing and tackle some of the difficult terrain throughout the Lockyer Valley, a number of changes will be made to the local road network. This includes:

  • entry to the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing via an overpass from the Warrego Highway at Helidon Spa. View Warrego East page
  • closure of the median strip between Postmans Ridge Road and Twidales Road at Helidon Spa
  • cul-de-sac of Postmans Ridge Road on the western side and construction of a new Postmans Ridge Road alignment along the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing on the eastern side at Postmans Ridge
  • construction of a new Murphys Creek Road overpass bridge at Postmans Ridge. View Murphys Creek overpass page
  • creek crossings at Gatton Creek and Six Mile Creek, Postmans Ridge
  • construction of underpasses at Paynter Road, Postmans Ridge, Gittins Road and McNamaras Road, Withcott, and Morleys Road, Ballard
  • construction of an 800m long viaduct bridge along the escarpment between Wallens Road, Ballard and the New England Highway, Mount Kynoch. View Viaduct page
