The road to Far North Queensland’s future.

Edmonton to Gordonvale road upgrade

The major upgrade of the Bruce Highway between Edmonton and Gordonvale, south of Cairns, will make travelling safer and more reliable and improve flood resilience in the area.

The $481 million project is a much-needed infrastructure investment in the future of Far North Queensland. 

The project is creating hundreds of new jobs for locals and upon completion will boost capacity and reduce congestion on one of the most important and busiest roads in Queensland.

The project will include a 10.5km upgrade including duplication of all existing two-lane sections to four lanes, new service roads, the relocation of 4.4kms of Queensland Rail line, the construction of two new active level crossings and the relocation and construction of 8.8kms of cane rail.
