Infrastructure minister Warren Truss says ramp signals and communication technology will help to improve traffic flows at key congestion points on the Bruce Highway in Queensland.

Ramp signals will play the same role as traffic lights, but will only operate in high-demand periods, ensuring incoming vehicles are able to merge smoothly with through traffic.

The signals will apply at the Dohles Rocks Road, Anzac avenue, Boundary Road, Deception Bay Road and Uhlmann Road on-ramps.

Truss says the technology is part of a wider Australian Government initiative to improve the important road link between Brisbane and Cairns.

"The $34.8 million Bruce Highway Managed Motorways project includes a suite of smart technologies to maximise capacity in peak periods, improve travel times and enhance driver safety," he says.
