Bayside and Redlands Transport and Mobility Study

The Bayside and Redlands Transport and Mobility Study will investigate opportunities to enhance movement to, from and within the study area.

We've identified the need for a multi-modal transport study to investigate the transport challenges and mobility priorities relating to road, active transport and public transport modes.

Our transport study will identify the communities' current and future mobility priorities when travelling to, from and within the area, supported by desired outcomes and a high-level overview of the preferred 2046 transport networks. The study will provide a clearer understanding of the transport and mobility issues faced in the study area and includes community engagement to understand local transport network priorities.

Key features

The Bayside and Redlands region in South East Queensland is a strategically important sub-region with unique economic, environmental and lifestyle characteristics, and is expected to grow by 74,500 people by 2046.

About the study area

The study area extends from the Port of Brisbane down to Redland Bay and includes key attractions and development areas such as the Port of Brisbane, priority development areas at Toondah Harbour and Weinam Creek, the southern Redland Bay major expansion area, the Southern Thornlands Potential Future Growth Area, and important environmental and coastal areas. The area also serves as the gateway to Moreton Bay and southern Moreton Bay islands.

Current status

As part of this study, the Department of Transport and Main Roads has identified strategic needs for the area, developed a draft vision for the future of the transport network within the Bayside and Redlands, and proposed potential strategic outcomes to achieve the vision.

Following recent community consultation, we are now reviewing feedback to inform development of the study. Further information about the key findings of consultation feedback will be included in the final study report.
