The Toowoomba Bypass is not just a road….it is a pathway that delivers economic prosperity and a safer transport route for industry and our communities.  All levels of Government agree it needs to be built,
but every day we delay, its costing us millions.


The proposed bypass will span 42 km from the Warrego Highway at Helidon Spa to the Gore Highway at Athol.
