Victoria Point Bypass Planning Study

Overview:

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking a planning study (feasibility study) to investigate options to reduce congestion around the Victoria Point which includes Cleveland-Redland Bay Road and the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass.

Location:

The project area is bounded by Boundary Road to the north, Cleveland Redland Bay Road in the east, Giles Road to the south and follows the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass route consisting of Double Jump Road, Bunker Road, Kingfisher Road, Springacre Road on the west.

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 undertake a planning study of the road network that includes Cleveland-Redland Bay Road and the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass. This study aims to support improved road safety and decrease congestion in the local area. 

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

Regions:
Metropolitan Region

Project info

TMR is undertaking a planning study of the local road network around the Victoria Point region that includes Cleveland-Redland Bay Road and the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass. 

It is thought that 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 in Victoria Point. TMR will work with RCC, that own and operate the bypass roads, to complete the study. 

Community consultation occurred from 15 February to 15 March 2019. Feedback is now being considered by the project team. 

The Study will be delivered by mid-2020 and the community will be informed of the study outcomes at that time.
