GYMPIE BYPASS: What suburbs will boom, what will bust?

AT LEAST 87 Gympie businesses with direct Bruce Highway frontage could be compromised when the final stage of the Bruce Highway bypass is completed in approximately three years.

With $800 million in Federal Government funding being granted in late April for the Section D project, traffic will be diverted around Gympie's central business district as the link-up from Cooroy to Curra is finished in approximately 3 years.
