The 1,700 kilometre Bruce Highway is Queensland's major north-south road corridor, connecting coastal population centres from Brisbane to Cairns and supporting around 58 per cent of Queensland's population.

The Cairns Southern Access Corridor - Stage 3, will involve duplicating 10 kilometres of the Bruce Highway between Edmonton and Gordonvale from two to four lanes. This will incorporate an exising four lane section at Meringa, and will see existing local road intersections with the Highway be partially or fully closed; diverting traffic to safer access points. A section of the North Coast Rail Line will also need to be moved to accommodate the works.

The Federal Government has committed $384.8 million to the project with the State Government providing the remaining $96.2 million in an 80/20 split.

Funding is committed from 2019, therefore construction is expected to commence from 2020.
