What's Happening 

 New PSP under Redcliffe Bridge is now open

The Principal Shared Path (PSP) across the river, underneath the new Redcliffe Bridge has just opened. The team will be finalising work during the coming months.

 Widening works continue along Tonkin Highway

We are continuing works to widen Tonkin Highway between Dunreath Drive and Collier Road. This includes bulk excavation, drainage installation and asphalting along Tonkin Highway. We will have lane and ramp closures at night on Tonkin Highway between Collier Road and Dunreath Drive. Keep an eye on this page and the Tonkin Gap Facebook group for details as we progress with the works.

 Great Eastern Highway upgrade continues

Have you been on the new Great Eastern Highway underpass? Finishing works including patching and painting will continue.

In late March, we will start work for the new directional signage over Great Eastern Highway. During installation, we will need to close the footpath on Great Eastern Highway eastbound between The Ascot Apartments and Tonkin Highway for approximately two months. Stay tuned for details and a detour map.

 Redcliffe Bridge progress

We are planning to open the new Redcliffe Bridge Principal Shared Path (PSP) this month. Following the opening of the PSP, the existing path will need to close so we can start installing noise walls. Stay tuned for the opening date.
