Western end of Toowoomba Second Range Crossing officially opened

The Queensland Government has officially opened 24km of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC).

The western end of the $1.6 billion project, between Mort St, Cranley and the Gore Highway in Athol, was opened to traffic on 8 December 2018, marking a major milestone for one of Queensland’s largest infrastructure projects.

The Nexus consortium, which comprises Broadspectrum and partners, has delivered a world-class road design and construction solution. Broadspectrum’s scope of work includes a 25-year contract to operate and maintain the TSRC.

Contract Manager Scott Cain said: “This newly-formed team has performed exceedingly well with the best interests of our client and the safety of the travelling public at the forefront of our minds.

“With mobilisation activities nearing completion, our team is shifting its focus to hands-on operations and maintenance activities that will ultimately form the core responsibilities of our role.”

The entire 41km of roadway will open in late 2019.
