End of Calliope Crossroads work gets closer

WORK on the Calliope Crossroads is drawing to a close, with drivers on the Bruce and Dawson highways soon set to enjoy safer travel.

Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss is in Gladstone on Wednesday with Federal Member for Flynn Ken O'Dowd to inspect the final stages of work on the $105 million project.

"The Australian Government fully funded the Calliope Crossroads upgrade, a major construction project that has significantly improved the intersection of the Bruce and Dawson highways," Mr Truss said.
