We are responsible for managing the policy and legislative framework for toll roads in Queensland, under the provisions of the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994.
To manage Queensland’s significant growth, new toll roads have opened, providing new road capacity to meet future demand. Further tollway projects have been approved and are at different stages of development.
In 2009, Queensland’s toll roads changed to free-flow (electronic) tolling providing open motorways with no need to stop and pay the toll. This change is another response to the south-east Queensland’s rapidly growing population.
Toll road operators
Declared toll roads in Queensland are the Gateway and Logan Motorways, operated by Queensland Motorways, the Clem Jones Tunnel (CLEM7), operated by Rivercity Motorways, the Go Between Bridge, operated by Brisbane City Council and the AirportLink, operated by BrisConnections.
A tollway project has also been approved for Legacy Way (Northern Link Tunnel), to be operated by Brisbane City Council.
The State holds the perpetual lease over toll road land. The department, on behalf of the State, sub-leases toll road land to operators or local government.
