The Federal and State Governments have announced funding for the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC). Read the Treasurer's media statement and the Deputy Premier's media statement for more information.
The procurement phase started with the release of a Registration of Interest document (PDF 465 K). The ROI closed at 2 pm on Friday, 7 March 2014 and 63 submissions were received, ranging from international and Australian consortia through to smaller local construction companies. The Expression of Interest will be released in the near future.
For more information, read the Treasurer's media statement about the ROI process.
The TSRC is a bypass route to the north of Toowoomba, approximately 41km in length, running from the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east to the Gore Highway at Athol in the west via Charlton.
The project is the largest Commonwealth Government commitment to a single regional road project in Queensland history.
Once delivered, the TSRC will:
- remove trucks from Toowoomba city
- decrease travel time
- increase safety.
