The Palaszczuk Government has announced $12 million to upgrade the D’Aguilar Highway between Caboolture and Wamuran.
The project will tackle head-on and run-off road crashes in the region, with road widening, one-metre wide centre lines and new signage.
State member for Morayfield Mark Ryan said wide centre lines along the D’Aguilar Highway between the Bruce Highway and King Street exit had already proven extremely successful.
“More than 12,000 people use this stretch of road every day,” Mr Ryan said.
“This is about improving safety and reducing the potential for crashes in this growing area.
“It’s part of the Palaszczuk Government’s $3.13 billion road and transport program for our region, which includes the $662 million Bruce Highway widening between Caboolture and Steve Irwin Way.”
Design is already underway, with construction to take place next year, weather and construction schedule permitting.
To improve sight distances roadside vegetation will also be removed.
Mr Ryan said the Department of Transport and Main Roads would engage with locals and stakeholders as the design process progressed.
