Ten bridges to flood-proof highway

By Tanayah Wakefield

Work is underway, following the torrential rains, to improve flood resilience, safety and capacity on the Bruce Highway north of Caboolture.

Ten three-lane bridges are being built at five creek crossings between Caboolture-Bribie Island Rd and Steve Irwin Way to withstand a one-in-100-year flood event.

This includes the area where significant flooding led to the Bruce Highway being cut during the torrential rain in late February.

“We’re working to make highway closures through this section far less common,” Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said.
