North west transport network

Brisbane City Council is committed to making Brisbane better by helping to reduce traffic congestion and get residents home quicker and safer.

As part of this commitment, Council is developing a business case to help reduce congestion on Brisbane's north west transport network. The business case study area extends from Bald Hills to Toowong. The Australian Government has committed up to $10 million to the development of the business case.

Community consultation

The Transport Plan for Brisbane - Strategic Directions consultation, held from November 2017 to April 2018, told us that residents want an easy commute, reliable and convenient public transport, and transport choices that minimise environmental impacts.

The north west transport network business case is the next step in exploring our city's transport future and identifying opportunities to enhance transport in Brisbane's north-west.

From Wednesday 27 November 2019 to Friday 7 February 2020, Council invited residents to share feedback about their travel behaviours and where transport services and infrastructure could be improved. More than 3400 pieces of feedback were received during the community consultation, which was the first step in gathering information to help Council identify transport challenges and opportunities to enhance transport in Brisbane’s north-west.

On Wednesday 22 July 2020, Council released the North west transport network consultation report. The consultation report summarises the community feedback received during the consultation period.

Council looks forward to seeking additional community feedback in late 2020 as part of stage two of the business case development.

Brisbane is the heart of a growing region. It’s estimated that by 2041, an extra 1.9 million people will live in South East Queensland.

That means more people living, working or passing through Brisbane’s north-west. That’s a big challenge for our transport network.

Brisbane City Council is making Brisbane better by helping to reduce traffic congestion and get residents home quicker and safer.

As part of this commitment, Council is developing a business case for the north west transport network, with funding committed from the Australian Government.

The business case study area extends from Toowong to Bald Hills.

The business case will help plan for the future of the north west transport network.

Have your say to help make our city Brisbetter.

We want to know how you get from A to B and what transport services and infrastructure could be improved so we can plan for a better transport future for Brisbane’s north-west.
