Draft Adelaide Street Vision

Brisbane City Council has released a draft vision for Adelaide Street’s evolution into a walkable, tree-lined boulevard, weaving together retail and key civic spaces with a world-class public transport experience.

Construction of Brisbane Metro provides the opportunity to deliver improvements to Adelaide Street including pedestrian and streetscape upgrades. The City Centre Master Plan 2014 also identifies the need to develop a streetscape master plan for Adelaide Street.

Council is now seeking feedback on the draft vision. Find out how you can have your say.

Get to know Brisbane Metro

Brisbane City Council is getting you home quicker and safer with more travel options, less congestion and better public transport. Brisbane Metro will be a key part of Brisbane’s greater transport network and link the city to the suburbs, making it easier for you to connect to the people places you love.

New University of Queensland to PA Hospital fly-through video

Council has released a new fly-through video between the University of Queensland and PA Hospital, showing how Brisbane Metro will make travel easier within a growing health and knowledge precinct. New high-capacity and high-frequency Metro services will run on dedicated busways and link with suburban bus and train services, as part of a better planned network.

Procurement moves ahead

Council has recently announced the shortlisted tenderers for the Metro vehicle fleet and Collaborative Partnership for the inner city infrastructure works, responsible for the new underground Cultural Centre station and Adelaide Street tunnel. Procurement activities commenced in July 2018 with successful tenderers announced late 2019.

On Wednesday 20 March 2019, Council will host a briefing to industry representatives for the design and construction of the Brisbane Metro depot and maintenance facility.

Early construction works 

The Peel and Merivale Street intersection upgrade has now been completed at South Brisbane, helping to mitigate traffic changes from converting Victoria Bridge to a ‘green’ bridge. Council will continue to deliver the remaining intersection upgrades in 2019, ensuring cross-river connections are easy and convenient to access.

Draft Design Report Consultation Outcomes

In September 2018, Brisbane City Council released the draft Design Report Consultation Outcomes document which provides a summary of the key feedback themes identified through consultation and Council's response to this feedback. 

A detailed Consultation Report, including a summary of the consultation process, feedback received, and Council's response to comments raised in formal submissions are also available.

A key concern raised during consultation was the proposed access for cyclists and pedestrians on Victoria Bridge and Melbourne Street. In response to this feedback, Council has announced a revised design that provides a separated two-way cycleway across Victoria Bridge, dedicated pedestrian pathways, and three lanes for Metro and bus services, as well as cycle lanes on either side of Melbourne Street.

A fly-through animation has been developed which shows the revised design for Victoria Bridge.
