Bruce Hwy break hailed

A CRISIS group formed by the State Government to tackle the Bruce Hwy has been hailed as a "significant breakthrough" by Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss.

Premier Campbell Newman has announced a commitment of $10 billion over 10 years for the highway, as well as the formation of the new Bruce Highway Crisis Management Group.

Mr Truss, who helped form a Bruce Highway Action Group after the 2010 federal election, has been selected to be part of the committee. "I'm very pleased to see the new Queensland Government taking the issue seriously," Mr Truss said.

"The new state body will fit very well in the context of the work we are already doing in Canberra. It's a significant breakthrough because the previous state government resisted every effort to put in its share."

Premier Campbell Newman said as a priority, the government would task the Department of Main Roads to compile a proper engineering based 10-year Crisis Action Plan to address the Bruce Hwy crisis.
