Qld government aims to give Bruce Highway new name. The ‘100, 80, 60, 40, stop’ current front runner.

In a bid to attract more tourists to the Sunshine State, the Queensland Government is looking to rename our main highway with a ‘Spruce up the Bruce’ competition.

With no money for anything new, Queensland tourism figures this might be a cheap way to lure unsuspecting tourists into the mistake of driving instead of flying whilst spending zero dollars on tourism at the same time.

“We need a new and exciting name for the giant unfinished road that runs through our State,” said Premier Annastacia Palaszcuzk. “The people are over the occasional trivia signs – and we’re not coughing up dough for new ones – so we want to get them excited to get back on the road with this free competition.” And excited they are, with over 10 entries thus far.

Dale from Toowoomba suggested the ‘Will these roadworks ever end street’, Johnno from Mackay submitted the ‘Always under construction strip’, and Donnella from Townsville entered the ‘How many witches hats do we have in this state lane.’

At present though, the front runner seems to be the ‘100, 80, 60, 40, stop’ while the ‘Jesus tap dancing Christ highway’ is running a close second.
