Left Turn on Red project

Brisbane City Council has introduced Left Turn on Red facilities across Brisbane following a successful trial at five intersections between November 2013 and April 2014. Overwhelming support for these facilities was received both from the wider Brisbane community and local residents who used the trial intersections.

The 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. All Left Turn on Red intersections were selected after being assessed for safety against Australian Standard requirements.

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.
