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.

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.

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:
    Transport Planning and Operations
    Brisbane City Council
    GPO Box 1434
    Brisbane Qld 4001.

Community consultation sessions

Council held 19 community consultation sessions about the north west transport network in a number of key locations.

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.

Have your say to help grow Brisbane’s north west transport future.

For more information, visit Council’s website and search ‘north west transport network’.

This is Brisbetter.
