As part of work on the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing, a grade separated interchange is being constructed at Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road at Wellcamp.

toowoomba-cecil-plains-road-wellcamp


What's involved?

Works involve constructing:

  • two on-ramps, enabling motorists to access the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing in both directions
  • two off-ramps, enabling eastbound and westbound motorists to exit the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing
  • a three-span bridge, with one lane in each direction taking the road bypass over Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road
  • two signalised intersections to allow road users to safety turn in and out of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing.

A 1.1km long section of Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road at Wellcamp is being upgraded to accommodate the new interchange.

Access to Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport

Construction of a direct off-ramp to Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport was not included in the State reference design and does not form part of Nexus’ design solution. The Toowoomba-Cecil Plains Road interchange will serve as a connection point and is located approximately two kilometres from the airport.
