Toowoomba Second Range Crossing

Early works commence on Toowoomba Second Range Crossing

Published 17 December 2015

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA: Construction has started on one of Queensland’s highest priority road projects, the A$1.6 billion, 41 kilometre Toowoomba Second Range Crossing. 

The project is jointly funded, with the Australian Government contributing 80 per cent and the Queensland Government 20 per cent. 

Deputy Prime Minister and Federal Minister for Infrastructure and  Regional Development, the Hon Warren Truss MP, oversaw the commencement of works earlier this month in Toowoomba, southeast Queensland. 

Nexus Infrastructure Chairman John Witheriff said he was pleased to see the construction on this project underway with the support of the federal and state governments. 

“We have exciting times ahead of us as construction on this project progresses through to completion in 2018,” Mr Witheriff said. 

“The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing will improve driver safety and efficiency, as well as remove heavy vehicles from Toowoomba’s city centre and save them around 40 minutes of travel time. 

“When completed, this project will vastly benefit the region’s growth and development.” 

Major construction works are due to start in the first half of 2016 with the project expected to be completed in late 2018. 

The Nexus Infrastructure Consortium is contracted to operate and maintain the project for 25 years. 

Plenary Group, part of Nexus Infrastructure Consortium, is the financial advisor and equity investor for the project.
