Building a safer community for you, your family and friends, is a top priority for me.

The same applies to your safety on the Bruce Highway.  Too many lives have been lost in horrific fatal accidents and too many people have suffered from serious injuries in crashes on the highway between Cooroy and Curra.

Since 2004 considerable planning and construction investment has gone into building a safer Bruce Highway between Cooroy and Gympie, but as for constructing the full four lane divided highway all the way to Curra, we’re only half way there.

The Cooroy to Curra upgrade is divided into four projects.  Sections A, B and C are completed and open to traffic.  We’ve all seen the benefits of this new four lane, fatality free, divided highway between Cooroy and Woondum.  We now need new investments to make the highway safer to finish the job and get Section D done.

Section D is a 26 kilometre project between Woondum and Curra that will transform one of the deadliest sections of the Bruce Highway into a safer, high capacity highway that will help connect Wide Bay communities even when the Mary River floods.

Following an entirely new route, Section D is a world class piece of transport and economic infrastructure and exactly what we need and deserve in Wide Bay. The Mayors from across the Wide Bay Burnett region, Bundaberg, Fraser Coast, North Burnett, South Burnett, and Gympie Local Government areas have united in support of the project.

Section D will deliver significant economic benefits.  For motorists travelling between Woondum and Curra, Section D will eliminate eight sets of traffic lights, better connecting the Wide Bay region to Brisbane and Maryborough.  Section D will take many heavy vehicles out of Gympie and be a big congestion buster for local motorists.

The Australian Government has already spent $52 million on planning, detailed design and acquisitions.  The Queensland Government is committed to the project. Section D is the final project along the Cooroy to Curra corridor and as your representative in the Australian Parliament, I need your support to finish the job and tell Canberra it must be built.

Please enter your details to join the call, help make history, and get Section D done.

Thank you for your support.
