Brisbane Metro is a high-frequency public transport system that will cut travel times, reduce Central Business District (CBD) bus congestion and improve services to the suburbs.
With two metro routes operating every three minutes in peak periods, Brisbane Metro will deliver a network of turn-up-and-go services linking the suburbs with the inner city.
Together with the Queensland Government’s Cross River Rail project, Brisbane Metro will unlock existing capacity constraints at the core of the transport network, helping to support future jobs and population growth across the region.
In March 2018, Brisbane Metro was confirmed as a High Priority Project on the nation’s Infrastructure Priority List, which is used by governments to guide future infrastructure investments. This follows Infrastructure Australia’s positive assessment of the project Business Case and makes Brisbane Metro the only public transport project in Queensland to be listed in the High Priority category.
Draft Design Report
On Monday 23 April 2018, Council released the Brisbane Metro draft Design Report for consultation, marking the next important step in the development of Brisbane Metro. The draft Design Report is a voluntary, non-statutory assessment of Brisbane Metro and describes the project’s infrastructure, operation and construction in detail.
Council is inviting residents and stakeholders to have their say on the Brisbane Metro draft Design Report until Friday 25 May 2018. Your feedback will help Council continue to shape this vital infrastructure project.
