The first section of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing was inaugurated on 8 December; this is a milestone in one of the largest infrastructure projects in the state of Queensland and Cintra’s first project to come into service in Australia.
The 24-kilometer western section of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) connects Mort Street in Toowoomba with Gore Highway, providing new connections for cars and light commercial vehicles between Athol, the Charlton logistics hub and the Toowoomba CBD, via Mort Street.
Speaking at the inauguration, John Hagan, CEO of the concession company, said: “I am proud to be able to deliver this infrastructure, which the region has been eagerly awaiting, and I hope to be able to repeat the feat in 2019 by inaugurating the entire road and celebrating it with the local community.”
Michael McCormack, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, said: “Completion of the work is fantastic news for residents and visitors in the Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley regions.”
Construction of this newly-inaugurated section of road involved moving 12.6 million cubic meters of earth, pouring 60,000 cubic meters of concrete, installing over 500 deck units, and building an emblematic 800-meter viaduct.
