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 Bruce Highway terminates in the Cairns CBD at the corners of Florence and Sheridan Street. The Cairns Ring Road would extend the Bruce Highway from its current terminus to the intersection of the Captain Cook and Kennedy Highways at Smithfield. This would create a ring road through Western Arterial Road connecting back to the northern most part of the Bruce Highway.

In April 2019, the Federal Government committed $287.2 million for the project with the Queensland State Government expected to contribute $82.8 million.
