Construction has commenced on the A$1 bn ($729 m) Section D: Woondum to Curra (C2CD) highway project in the Gympie Region, Queensland, Australia, to improve traffic flow and safety.
The C2CD project is a part of wider Bruce Highway-Cooroy to Curra realignment to improve safety and flood resilience along the highway between Brisbane and Cairns.
Split into four sections, the Bruce Highway-Cooroy to Curra project involves the realignment and upgrade of the 62 km Bruce Highway to four lanes between Cooroy and Curra.
The sections A to C were completed over the past 10 years, while section D involves the construction of a new 26 km, 4-lane highway between the existing Bruce Highway interchange.
The C2CD project is being delivered in two major construction contracts with the first contract recently awarded to a joint venture between Bielby Holdings and BMD. The Cooroy to Curra – Section D project is slated for completion by mid-2024.
