Project info

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is aware of the ongoing and increasing transport pressures relating to road, active transport and public transport modes on the Bulimba Peninsula in the suburbs of Bulimba, Hawthorne and Balmoral.

TMR is undertaking the Bulimba Peninsula Transport and Congestion Study to provide a better understanding of these pressures. The study is a multi-modal transport and traffic assessment of the Bulimba Peninsula, including the suburbs of Bulimba, Balmoral and Hawthorne. 

The study will investigate ongoing and emerging traffic and transport pressures relating to circulation within the peninsula by private vehicle, public transport and active transport; and key connections via the river, road and rail network to adjacent suburbs and core employment centres.

Community consultation

A 6-week community listening program was undertaken to gain a thorough understanding of the transport pressures and opportunities in the area. The project team have received informative feedback on a diverse range of transport issues within the study area through the study’s online interactive map, the study survey and face-to-face engagement booths across the study area.

The project team also hosted a consultation workshop with community representatives in mid-September 2018 to validate the information gathered through open community engagement and to identify any areas for further investigation.

Next steps

The feedback from community engagement is being used to steer the options development phase of the study. An insights report resulting from the study is currently under development and will inform future planning for the Bulimba Peninsula. It is anticipated that the insights report capturing the key outcomes of the project will be made available in mid-2019.
