Townsville Ring Road Stage 5
The Townsville Ring Road link is a 22-kilometre section of the 36-kilometre Bruce Highway route through Townsville, forming part of the National Highway which is Queensland’s primary freight, passenger, and tourism corridor. It also connects Townsville’s suburbs to key employment nodes and essential services.
Most of the Townsville Ring Road is four lanes wide, however around 6km is currently only two lanes wide.
The TRR5 project will duplicate this remaining two-lane section to four lanes and will provide an interchange with Beck Drive which connects to the growing Upper Ross area.
When the TRR5 project is complete, the entire 36 kilometre Bruce Highway link through Townsville (extending from Stuart in the south to Jensen in the north) will be at four lane standard (that is, two lanes in each direction).
