Brisbane City Council has committed up to $10 million to the development of a major transport network business case of the north-west in response to heavy calls for action against congestion.
The business case and proposed developments have an area that extends from Bald Hills to Toowong and considers surrounding regions such as the Moreton Bay.
The north-west traffic corridor between Everton Park and Carseldine has nine-kilometre of extension. Brisbane City Council informed that nearly 500,000 additional daily trips would ‘originate in the north-western suburbs, or travel through to Brisbane from Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast by 2041.’
The Brisbane City Council is currently dealing with potential transport solutions for the north-west transport network, which have been identified and considered with Brisbane commuters’ community feedback.
Brisbane City Council is planning to submit the business case by late-2021 and submit the final infrastructure assessment plan to the Australian Government’s independent infrastructure advisor, which will consider the business case recommendations and the projects identified by the Council.
