With construction expected to begin by early this year and completed in mid-2018, I believe the Toowoomba Bypass is the most important economic project for our region.
Modelling shows over the next 30 years, the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing will help bring about a
- $2.4 billion increase in productivity in the Toowoomba region alone , and
- Create more than 1,800 new jobs during the project
With up to $1.285 billion in federal funding, and the Queensland Government’s allocation of $321.25 million to the project in the 2014-15 budget, the Toowoomba bypass is the single largest regional road infrastructure investment in Queensland’s history.
