History

  • The need for this corridor was identified in the 1960s, in the landmark Wilbur Smith and Associates Brisbane Transportation Study.
  • In the late 1970s, in response to land development pressures, the then Department of Main Roads planned and preserved this corridor based on its current standards for a four-lane median-divided road.

Current status

Centenary Highway to Moggill Road (also known as Kenmore Bypass)

In 2006–07 the then Department of Main Roads undertook a desktop planning study into the feasibility of a Kenmore Bypass.

The study examined previous planning work and updated it with current knowledge to identify the scope of works required to provide the bypass, including impacts, benefits and an indicative cost. Preliminary investigations were completed in 2007.

Transport and Main Roads is now progressing planning for the bypass in consultation with the community. For further information, visit the Kenmore Bypass Planning Study 2008page.

Moggill Road to Warrego Highway

As determined by the Western Brisbane Transport Network Investigation, this corridor will not be required under the land use projections in the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-26, but remains as an important future corridor.
