Northern Transitway


The Northern Transitway will provide Brisbane’s north side customers with a safer and more efficient public transport system. The $53 million project will deliver targeted bus priority from Kedron to Chermside and improve safety, reliability and capacity of Brisbane’s northern public transport network.


The Northern Transitway is a 2.3km corridor along Gympie Arterial Road between Sadlier Street, Kedron and Hamilton Road, Chermside.

  • A safer, more efficient public transport system for Brisbane north side 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.
  • Improvements to footpaths along the corridor. 

The Queensland Government is investing $53 million to deliver the Northern Transitway.

The project is part of the Passenger Transport Infrastructure Investment Program (PTIIP). The PTIIP aims to deliver critical enabling infrastructure to achieve a connected, integrated network that offers value to customers and makes public transport an attractive option for everyone.
