As the largest Commonwealth Government commitment to a single regional road project in Queensland’s history, the $1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) is set to streamline the region’s transport and logistics capabilities
The TSRC will encompass a 42km bypass route that will link Brisbane, the Darling Downs and the Surat Basin, running from the Warrego Highway at Helidon in the east to the Gore Highway at Athol in the West via Charlton. The existing range crossing is currently operating well-over capacity with approximately 28,000 cars and trucks using the crossing daily. TSRC will significantly increase freight efficiencies and market availability across all sectors in the region, and compliment the Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport and the anticipated Inland Rail Project to bring together unprecedented road, rail and air connectivity in the region. As Australia’s largest inland road project and also the largest in Queensland, TSRC will offer the following benefits to Toowoomba and the surrounding regions, including: • 80% reduction of heavy and super heavy commercial vehicles on existing crossing. • 25% (approx.) reduction in commercial vehicle operating costs. • 40 minute reduction in travel time when crossing the range. • Driver safety improvements, relief of pressure on Toowoomba roads and enhanced liveability for city residents. • Capacity to cater for growth beyond 25 years.
