Victoria Point Bypass Planning Study

Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is seeking feedback from the community to inform the Victoria Point Bypass Planning Study. Feedback received by Friday 15 March 2019 will inform the planning study.

Location:

The project is located on Redland City Council (RCC) roads including Double Jump Road, Kingfisher Road, Springacre Road and Bunker Road, connecting Boundary Road in the north and Cleveland Redland Bay Road on the south east as shown.

Benefits:
  • Improved travel times.
  • Reduced congestion.
  • Improved safety of all road users, including bus passengers and pedestrians.
Funding:

The Queensland Government has committed $500,000 to investigate the feasibility of formalising the Victoria Point Bypass on the existing local Council owned and operated road network and to identify options to improve traffic flow on Cleveland-Redland Bay Road through the Victoria Point business precinct.

Funding for future project stages, including further planning studies, a business case and construction are dependent on the study outcomes and competing statewide funding priorities.

Regions:
Metropolitan Region

Project info

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking a planning study of the local road network around the Victoria Point region that includes the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass. 

Currently, local motorists avoid Cleveland-Redland Bay Road through the Victoria Point business precinct area due to congestion caused by signalised intersections, local schools and the business precinct itself. 

Local motorists are aware of an alternative route along Redland City Council (RCC) roads including Springacre Road, Kingfisher Road, Bunker Road and Double Jump Road.

These roads form an unofficial bypass around Victoria Point, which is locally known as the Victoria Point Bypass.

In November 2017, Queensland Government announced it is committed to working with the RCC on a long-term plan to ease congestion and improve safety by investigating options to formalise the Victoria Point Bypass. TMR will work with RCC, that own and operate the bypass roads, to complete the study. 

TMR is seeking community input to inform the study and will keep the local community informed as the project progresses. The Study will be delivered by mid-2020 and the community will be informed of the study outcomes at that time.

We are seeking community feedback until Friday 15 March 2019. To have your say you can complete the online survey or request a hard copy feedback from by contacting us on the details listed below.
