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 $10 million to the development of the business case.
Community consultation for Brisbane's north west transport network is now closed.
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.
To help inform the business case, residents were invited to share feedback about their current travel behaviour and where transport services and infrastructure could be improved. Consultation ran from Wednesday 27 November 2019 to Friday 7 February 2020, with residents invited to have their say by:
- completing the online survey or quick poll
- talking to a Council officer in person at one of our consultation sessions (see table below)
- emailing the project team
- writing to Council:

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.

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.
