Rockhampton Ring Road Project
Building Queensland led the development of a detailed business case for the Rockhampton Ring Road Project, working in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
The business case investigated the construction of a new Bruce Highway link to the west of Rockhampton, with a new Fitzroy River crossing and key linkages into the city at the Capricorn Highway, West Rockhampton Connector Road, Rockhampton-Ridgelands Road, Alexandra Street and Yaamba Road (Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road). The project will integrate with major infrastructure already completed, including Yeppen North and Yeppen South, and projects currently being delivered, including the Rockhampton Northern Access upgrade and Capricorn Highway—Rockhampton to Gracemere duplication project.
The detailed business case was developed using Building Queensland’s Business Case Development Framework and aligns with the Queensland Government’s Project Assessment Framework; the Infrastructure Australia Assessment Framework; and the Australian Transport Assessment and Planning Framework. The application of these frameworks has delivered a comprehensive and robust analysis of the preferred option for addressing the service needs in accordance with the Bruce Highway Upgrade Program.
