The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing (TSRC) is a proposed bypass route of Toowoomba City (located north of Toowoomba) and is considered a high priority project in Queensland. Part of the motivation for the TSRC is that the bypass will reduce the numbers of trucks in Toowoomba thus relieving congestion and improving safety on roads through Toowoomba. Trucks also tend to have difficulty getting up the range and end up causing delays for other vehicles travelling to and from Toowoomba. Therefore the bypass will reduce travel times and improve road safety for vehicles, not in just Toowoomba City, but those who are also travelling to and from Toowoomba up the range.

After the Expression of Interest (EOI) phase of the procurement process for the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project, three consortia were shortlisted to move onto the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage. The three shortlisted consortia were Nexus, RangeConnect and RangeLink.
