Left Turn on Red project | Brisbane City Council

Left Turn on Red project

Following a successful pilot at five intersections between November 2013 and April 2014, Brisbane City Council was approved by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to extend the trial of Left Turn on Red facilities across Brisbane to 50 intersections.

The trialling of Left Turn on Red facilities at intersections across Brisbane is a practical way of decreasing individual travel times and easing congestion, contributing to our vision for an accessible, connected city and getting you home quicker and safer. All Left Turn on Red intersections were selected after being assessed for safety against Australian Standard requirements.

Decommissioned Left Turn on Red intersections - no longer in use

In late 2017, TMR approved the Left Turn on Red trial being extended by Council until 31 December 2019. TMR conditioned the trial’s extension on Council re-assessing the Left Turn on Red facilities against the New South Wales Government’s Roads and Maritime Services Traffic Signal Design Appendix – E ‘Left Turn on Red Guidelines’, issued in July 2016.

Based on this re-assessment required by TMR the Left Turn on Red facilities in the table are no longer in use and have been de-commissioned.

What is Left Turn on Red?

Left Turn on Red allows motorists to turn left at a red light after coming to a complete stop and giving way to other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists on the intersection. This is only permitted at intersections where the approach has ‘Left Turn on Red Permitted after Stopping’ signage installed, as shown in the following animation. The usual road rules apply at all other intersections.
