THE Gympie and Rockhampton mayors have been recruited to the group responsible for fixing the troublesome Bruce Highway.

Last month, the State Government established the Bruce Highway Crisis Management Group to prioritise the highway's upgrade projects.

A report will be delivered to Minister for Roads Scott Emerson in six months.

The group is comprised of local MPs, the head of the RACQ and Queensland Police traffic branch and the Queensland Trucking Association.

Following the local government elections, Gympie mayor Ron Dyne and Rockhampton mayor Margaret Strelow also have been added to the team.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Development Jeff Seeney said the mayors brought local expertise to the group.

"(The mayors) brought local knowledge to the group, which was committed to making safety and flood immunity the priorities for the LNP Government's 10-year Crisis Action Plan for the Bruce Highway," he said.

Gympie MP David Gibson said he was glad Mr Dyne was on the committee to provide Gympie another voice to get the highway fixed.
