General Information:

M/A2 is the main link from Brisbane to the northern territory. It varies from motorway standard in the Brisbane metropolitain area, to dual carriageway rural highway standard between Brisbane and Toowoomba, and rural highway standard beyond Toowoomba. The route is the only sealed link between Flinders Highway and Capricorn Highway apart from Gregory Development Road between Emerald and Charters Towers.

The Landsborough Highway runs through vast tracts of land that was once occupied by William Landsborough, an Australian explorer of the 19th century. The Barkly Highway is the only major route connecting Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The route features ALT-A2, an alternate route via the town centre of Charleville. ALT-A2 is formed by Warrego Hwy and Mitchell Hwy. Charleville is important town in the southern centre of Queensland. Through traffic follows A2 via Landsborough Highway from Morve to Augathellla.
