CLEM7 Tunnel

The Clem Jones Tunnel is a fast and safe way to travel across Brisbane. The CLEM7 is a tolled motorway linking the Pacific Motorway (M3) and Ipswich Road at Woolloongabba to Lutwyche Road and the Inner City Bypass (ICB) at Bowen Hills. 

The 6.8 kilometre toll road includes twin, two-lane 4.8 kilometre tunnels. The Clem Jones Tunnel is the first critical component of Brisbane City Council's TransApex vision that aims to reduce deficiencies in Brisbane's city and suburban road network.

Opened in March 2010, six months ahead of the contract completion date, CLEM7 allows motorists to enjoy faster, safer and more reliable travel. By using the CLEM7 you will avoid up to 24 sets of traffic lights and save up to 30% travel time on a cross-city trip.

The CLEM7 is operated by Queensland Motorways. Tolls are collected electronically through either a tag fitted inside motorists’ vehicles, or through number plate recognition technology. Linkt is the preferred tolling service provider for the CLEM7.
