Legacy Way Tunnel

The Legacy Way Tunnel is a key part of Brisbane City Council's plan to tackle traffic congestion on the city's roads. Legacy Way is Council’s 4.6 kilometre road tunnel that connects the Western Freeway at Toowong with the Inner City Bypass (ICB) at Kelvin Grove and was opened on Thursday 25 June 2015.

Legacy Way was named by Council in honour of the not-for-profit entity, Legacy.

Supporting Legacy

Supporting Legacy

Legacy Way was named by Council in honour of the not-for-profit entity, Legacy, that has been providing services and caring for veterans’ families since 1923. Their vision is that no Australian family will ever face the challenges of life alone after a veteran’s death or incapacity.
