The Australian Government has provided Brisbane City Council with funding to develop a business case to help reduce traffic congestion through Brisbane’s north-west.

Our vision is that wherever you are in Brisbane, you’re connected to an integrated network that gets you where you want to go.

About the business case

The north west transport network business case study area extends from Bald Hills to Toowong and considers surrounding areas such as the Moreton Bay region.

The business case will consider potential transport infrastructure ideas within the network to help reduce traffic congestion and get residents home quicker and safer.

The Australian Government has committed up to $10 million to the development of the north west transport network business case. Funding through the Major Project Business Case Fund is supporting Council to investigate the transport needs of this growing region, including opportunities to utilise the existing North West Transport Corridor, to inform future government investment in road, public and active transport.

The business case is being prepared in line with the Infrastructure Australia Assessment Framework for initiatives and projects to be included in the Infrastructure Priority List.

Community consultation

In late 2019, residents were invited to share feedback about their travel behaviours and where transport services and infrastructure could be improved.

A range of potential transport infrastructure ideas have now been developed to help address transport challenges identified by residents. The transport ideas consider improvements to roads, public transport and active ways of travelling, to help you move around our city with more travel options.
