About the project

Council proactively upgraded the road infrastructure between Bancroft Road and Marine Road in Pinkenba, to cater for the anticipated increase in traffic movements that will come with the future development of Pinkenba and the new international cruise terminal.

The Brisbane International Cruise Terminal roads upgrade involved completing minor road works to support this future development. The works included widening existing narrow sections of the road to improve safety as well as raising the level of some road sections to improve flood resilience.

The upgrade was jointly funded with Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd and will support local growth and tourism in Brisbane by improving the connection for local residents, businesses and visitors to the city via Main Myrtletown Road and Kingsford Smith Drive.

The sections of roads that were upgraded include:

  1. Main Beach Road between Lewandowski Drive and Marine Road
  2. Bancroft Road and Brownlee Street bend
  3. Main Beach Road and Marine Road intersection
  4. Brownlee Street and Main Beach Road bend
  5. Extension of Marine Road to the Port of Brisbane entrance.

At these road sections, the works involved:

  • widening narrow sections to improve safety
  • raising the road level in sections to meet current overall road network flood resilience
  • relocating utility services
  • road resurfacing works.
