Preferred Planning Option released
The Department of Transport and Main Roads has finished the preferred planning option for a potential Kenmore Bypass.
The preferred planning option is a 4-lane bypass (2 lanes in each direction), linking Moggill Road to the Centenary Motorway.
Motorists travelling on the proposed bypass would link directly to Moggill Road to travel south, with a T-intersection for those wishing to travel north on Moggill Road.
The bypass option includes connections to the Centenary Motorway, as well as a reconfiguration of the Centenary Motorway and Fig Tree Pocket interchange. Gem Road would also be reconfigured to pass under the bypass, connecting more directly to Sunset Road.
A shared off-road pedestrian and cyclist path would be provided along the entire bypass route with a connection to the Centenary Bikeway.
Where to from here
The Kenmore Bypass Planning Study is now finished. The project team has reviewed the results from technical and environmental investigations and community feedback to develop the preferred option.
The planning study has confirmed a Kenmore Bypass is technically and environmentally feasible, and has also identified potential property requirements which will be used to preserve the corridor as development occurs around it.
The next step is for the Government to assess the affordability and priority of the project. Currently there is no decision or funding to build a Kenmore Bypass.
