Ingham Road Four-lane Upgrade

Investment $600,000
Goal 1. A city that connects you to what you need at the time you choose.
Improve traffic flow and heavy vehicle safety in the Bohle industrial area.
Status Design and planning underway

Project Background

Townsville City Council plans to upgrade Ingham Road to four lanes between Enterprise and Mathers Streets.

Council has engaged a local engineering company, SMEC, to undertake the preliminary and detailed design. Complying with the Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Road's current design standards, Council intends to apply for State and Federal funding to deliver this project as future works.

In preparation for future upgrades, Council has completed three intersection upgrades along Ingham Road to improve traffic flow and heavy vehicle safety in the Bohle Industrial Area. State and Federal funding through the Transport Infrastructure Development Scheme and the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program also contributed to this portion of the project.

As part of this project, Council intends to:

  • improve safety and efficiency of the road network
  • allow for A-Double and B-Triple traffic movements
  • increase safety for passenger vehicles
  • increase safety for pedestrians and cyclists
  • maintain stormwater immunity in the local area.


Council invited initial feedback on the upgrade proposal from Monday 17 October 2022 through to Monday 14 November 2022. Further consultation will occur as the planning and design of this project progresses.
