Eastern Transitway

Overview:

The Eastern Transitway will provide bus customers in Brisbane's east with a safer and more efficient public transport network. The $22 million project will deliver targeted bus priority measures to improve safety, reliability and capacity along the 5.5 kilometre stretch of Old Cleveland Road from Coorparoo to Carindale.

Location:

The Eastern Transitway corridor is located along Old Cleveland Road, between Coorparoo and Carindale.

Benefits:

  • A safer, more efficient public transport network for eastern Brisbane customers, by separating buses from general traffic.
  • More reliable and improved travel times for bus customers along the corridor.
  • A facility to support high frequency bus services, encouraging more people to use public transport.
  • Greater capacity on the public transport system, encouraging more people to use public transport. This will assist in managing congestion along the corridor and broader Eastern-Brisbane transport network.

Funding:

The Queensland Government is investing $22 million to deliver the Eastern Transitway.

Project info

The Eastern Transitway will investigate active transport along the corridor to support high frequency and reliable bus services along Old Cleveland Road, encouraging more people to use public transport and assist in managing congestion by separating buses from general traffic.

Design for the Eastern Transitway began mid-2019 and community consultation will inform the design.
