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 Haughton River Floodplain Upgrade (also known as the Haughton River Bridge Project and the Haughton River and Pink Lily Lagoon upgrade) will see construction of a higher level bridge and road approaches, including replacing the Haughton River Bridge, to improve flood immunity,across a 14 kilometre stretch of the Bruce Highway from south of Horseshoe Lagoon to Palm Creek, south of Townsville.

Safety will be further enhanced with the elimination of two at grade rail crossings at the Bruce Highway intersections with the Woodstock Giru Road and Hodel Road, south of Haughton.

Planning works are underway with tenders called for in May 2017. In July 2017 the Federal and Queensland Government announced two consortia had been shortlisted for the project, comprising:

- Seymour Whyte-John Holland joint venture with AECOM; and
- The Infrastructure Group joint venture between Bielby, BMD Constructions, JF Hull and Albem  with ARUP Group and HDR.

Construction is expected to commence in mid-2018, nine months ahead of the original schedule. Project completion is forecast for mid-2021.
