Bribie Island and surrounds transport and mobility study

A study investigating transport issues and opportunities relating to movement to, from and within the Bribie Island and surrounding area to identify opportunities for further action.

It is anticipated that Bribie Island and surrounding mainland communities will grow over the next 20 years, with more people forecast to live in the area. We are undertaking the Bribie Island and Surrounds Transport and Mobility Study to better understand the area and to identify community priorities for its future transport network.

Benefits

  • Reduces travel time
  • Improves network efficiency
  • Contributes to economy
  • Better active transport
  • Improves safety
  • Reduces peak hour congestion

This study will investigate ongoing and emerging traffic and transport pressures relating to movement to, from and within the Bribie Island and surrounding area. It will consider all modes of transport including private vehicles, walking, bike riding and public transport.

The study will help us better understand the area’s current and future transport challenges and opportunities and will identify options for a way forward to ensure safe and reliable movements across multiple modes of transport into the future.

Current status

Planning is continuing and will consider the feedback received late last year through our community consultation. Your feedback will help us identify a vision for the future transport system, along with priority issues and opportunities for more detailed consideration.

We will keep the community informed as planning progresses.

Community consultation

Community consultation was undertaken from 2 November to 17 December 2023 and included the following feedback tools and activities:

  • online survey and interactive mapping tool
  • hardcopy survey mailout to residences and businesses in the study area
  • community information sessions across the study area
  • community focus-group meetings.

Consultation focussed on gaining insights into the community’s views on transport and mobility to, from and within the study area, including priority issues and opportunities.
