Updates to automatic pedestrian traffic signals

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise that pedestrian traffic signals within high demand areas will be automatically triggered to help prevent the transmission of coronavirus.

This means pedestrians do not need to press the button when wanting to cross the road.  

This has been implemented 24 hours a day, seven days a week at intersections in the following areas:

  • CBD
  • Fortitude Valley
  • South Bank
  • South Brisbane
  • Spring Hill
  • Areas around hospitals, including Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Mater and Queensland Children’s Hospitals, Princess Alexandra Hospital,  Westside Private Hospital, RiverCity Private Hospital and St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital.  

Educational stickers have been put in place on traffic poles in many of these locations to notify residents and visitors. 

Council will continue to review locations with high pedestrian activity and will assess their suitability to receive automatic pedestrian signals.

For more information visit www.brisbane.qld.gov.au or call Council on (07) 3403 8888.

Council is working closely with Queensland Health and the Australian Government and will continue to be guided by these agencies on all matters of public health.
