Brisbane City Council is building smoother streets and improved road and transport networks. A range of key projects including major road construction and intersection upgrades are helping tackle road congestion. Council is improving access to major transport networks and safety in local areas. By constructing intersections, corridor upgrades and minor road projects, Council is helping residents get home quicker and providing more travel options.

We're delivering better roads and improving safety and traffic flow on suburban roads through the Better Roads for Brisbane Fund. It's one of the many ways we're making Brisbetter. Find out more.
