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 Cooroy to Curra project involves a 62 kilometre upgrade and realignment of the Bruce Highway between Cooroy and Curra, including a bypass of Gympie, and is among Queensland's highest priority road projects. The project has four parts:             

  •  Section A: Cooroy southern interchange to Sankeys Road;
  •  Section B: Sankeys Road to Traveston Road;
  •  Section C: Traveston to Woondum; and
  •  Section D: Woondum to Curra, including the Gympie bypass.

Sections A and B are already completed.

Section D, a 26 kilometre highway section, includes a bypass of Gympie with the corridor running east of the town, close to the railway line until Old Maryborough Road. It will then travel through the edge of Curra State Forest to minimise the impact on private land.

Preliminary planning commenced in March 2014 and was completed in early 2016.
Detailed Design began in May 2016 and is anticipated to be complete by late-2017/early-2018. Construction of Section D is still subject to funding.
