West End traffic study

Brisbane City Council is taking real action to make our suburban streets safer and more accessible for all.

As part of this, Council is undertaking a traffic review in the West End area, bounded by Montague Road, Vulture Street and Hardgrave Road, in response to concerns raised by the local community. 

Community feedback

In February, Council invited local residents and businesses in West End to provide feedback on traffic issues via an online engagement tool, Collabmap. Council received more than 430 submissions and more than 2200 votes on these submissions.

The feedback identified issues associated with pedestrian safety, parking, speeding and rat running.

Next steps

After reviewing the comments received from the community, Council is proposing to make a number of upgrades within the study area, including: 

  • a threshold treatment and kerb extension on Victoria Street at the intersection of Montague Road
  • a kerb build out on Victoria Street near Beattie Street to create a one-way section between Montague Road and Beattie Street
  • a pedestrian refuge facility on Montague Road north of Kurilpa Street and Harriet Street
  • installing a bike lane on the eastern side of Hardgrave Road between Mitchell Street and Whynot Street
  • improving the centre median pavement marking and yellow no stopping lines at the bend of Ida Street and Rogers Street
  • kerb build outs on Hoogley Street at the intersection of Jumna Street
  • a speed platform on Ryan Street east of Hoogley Street
  • kerb build outs and line marking on Ryan Street east of Lower Hardgrave Road
  • median islands and kerb build outs on Glenfield Street and Ryan Street at the intersection of Miller Street
  • kerb ramps and improving footpath facilities
  • improving line marking.
