Better Roads for Brisbane

Brisbane City Council is getting you home quicker and safer by delivering better roads for Brisbane and keeping the suburbs moving.

We’re making Brisbane better by taking coordinated action to fix congestion, build better transport networks and improve safety and traffic flow on suburban roads through the Better Roads for Brisbane Fund.

A joint $500 million commitment with the Australian Government will deliver congestion-busting projects and safety improvements right across Brisbane. This means you can spend less time on the road and more time doing what’s important.

Upcoming road projects

We're upgrading major corridors with more lanes and better intersections to improve safety and traffic flow in Indooroopilly, Rochedale, Ransome, Newstead, Mount Gravatt and Bracken Ridge.

Recently completed:

Currently in planning and design:

Open level crossings

We've also committed up to $40 million to improve safety at each of the open level crossings located at Boundary Road, Coopers Plains, Kianawah Road, Lindum and Beams Road, Carseldine. This is subject to the completion of business cases for each location by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Other road solutions

Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade

The Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade will reduce traffic congestion, improve safety and create an entry statement to Brisbane. In addition to providing increased road capacity to accommodate future traffic volumes, the upgrade will deliver significantly improved pedestrian and cyclist facilities.

Local streets

We're improving more than 1000 local roads to reduce congestion and create smoother streets.
