Beams Road (Carseldine) rail level crossing


The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is progressing the Beams Road (Carseldine) rail level crossing project to reduce congestion and address safety concerns.

TMR will work closely with the community and will keep you informed as the project progresses.




The Beams Road overpass will provide:

  • improved and more reliable travel times for rail and road users
  • reduced congestion for all road users
  • improved safety and access for all road users.

In 2019, the Queensland Government committed over $6 million into planning and design to identify a preferred option to improve safety and decrease congestion at the Carseldine rail level crossing on Beams Road. 

On 20 June 2020, the Queensland Government committed a further $128 million towards addressing safety and congestion at Beams Road. Construction of the $233 million level crossing overpass could commence as early as December 2021, subject to funding contributions from Brisbane City Council and the Australian Government.
