Wynnum Road corridor upgrade: Stage 1 - East Brisbane
Brisbane City Council is pleased to announce major construction is now complete on the Wynnum Road corridor upgrade stage 1 through East Brisbane.
The project was part of Council’s $1.3 billion commitment to more than 90 road improvement projects to take real action on congestion, by focusing on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting people home quicker and safer.
Stage 1b of the corridor upgrade complementing the works undertaken in Stage 1 were completed in August 2020.
These interim measures will improve traffic efficiency and safety along Wynnum Road, between Canning Bridge and Riding Road.
