The city of Toowoomba, Queensland is located on a major highway into the interior from Brisbane, with heavy truck traffic right through the middle of town on the old main highway. For several years the government has been developing plans for a bypass highway to climb the escarpment by going around the city, and work has just recently commenced on this massive project. The bypass will not be far from Rob & Marge’s home, so we were able to observe the work and trace the process of cutting through the gum tree forest to build an 800 meter long viaduct and four-lane highway to climb the hill and get around the city. The entire project will be 41 km long and should be finished by the end of 2018.
