Bruce Highway detail and contour surveys

RPS’ surveying specialists have worked together with the Department of Main Roads and Transport to improve road safety on several sections of the Bruce Highway, Queensland’s major highway.

Road widening and rehabilitation creating safer roads

Improving road safety, freight connectivity and productivity are top priorities for the Queensland Government’s $400 million Accelerated Works program.

As part of the priorities, widening the road centreline has been introduced as a new safety measure aiming to reduce head-on collisions. The treatment breaks the existing single centreline into two lines, creating a larger separation area between oncoming vehicles. To enable this treatment to be applied on a particularly vulnerable section of the Bruce Highway our surveying team provided detail and contour surveys for 4km of road near the Barratta Creek bridges in North Queensland.

Overall road widening to reduce collisions is another road safety measure of the program to reduce collisions. Our survey team provided expertise to enable the widening of a 5km section south of Townsville that has two overtaking lanes and a heavily used intersection turning into the popular Billabong Sanctuary.

Both surveys our team provided were also used to determine which sections of the road required pavement rehabilitation and included consideration of the utility services within the road corridor, culverts, signs and line marking.

Our team has been proud to be part of this value sharing project which is vital to improving the road safety, efficiency, capacity, and traffic flow of the Bruce Highway.
