Bridges, tunnels, culverts and transport links

Brisbane City Council is working on major transport infrastructure and road projects across the city which will keep Brisbane moving. New infrastructure will fill gaps in Brisbane's road network by allowing traffic to bypass the CBD over bridges, through tunnels and via highway links.

Find local roads and major intersections that Council is working on in suburbs across Brisbane.

Airport Link

Airport Link was originally identified as part of Council's TransApex plan to increase connectivity and reduce congestion on Brisbane's roads. The 6.7km road - primarily a tunnel - connects to both the Clem7 and Legacy Way tunnels, the Inner City Bypass and the northern suburbs via Gympie Road, Stafford Road and Sandgate Road.

Local Government Tollways

Council has three individual tollway concession agreements with Transurban Queensland for the operation of Clem7, the Go Between Bridge and Legacy Way.

These roads are declared Local Government Tollways under the provisions of the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994 (Qld).

The concession documents for each of these tollways are publicly available for viewing. To view these documents, contact the tollway management team for more information.

Naming bridges, tunnels and culverts

Council recognises the value of naming significant transport structures such as bridges, tunnels and culverts. Naming of such facilities can produce a feeling of local community ownership and celebrate historic, social and cultural connections.

To propose a name for a significant transport structure which is owned by Council and has historical, cultural or navigational importance, you can write to Council’s Manager, Transport Planning and Strategy, to a local Councillor, or request an ePetition to gather community support.

Names of a deceased people and groups, and historical events and connections can be considered. Please ensure supporting documentation, such as letters of consent from family members, photocopies of historical records, consideration of cultural protocols and evidence of any community consultation that may have occurred, is attached with your letter.
