Beams Road Level Crossing Upgrade project

The Beams Road Level Crossing Upgrade project is progressing and will reduce congestion and address safety concerns at the rail level crossing on Beams Road, Carseldine.

Beams Road is an important local road that provides connections for communities in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. It currently experiences significant congestion at the rail level crossing, particularly during peak hours. 

An overpass upgrade to the rail level crossing on Beams Road, Carseldine will provide:

  • improved and more reliable travel times for rail and road users
  • reduced congestion for all road users
  • improved safety and access.
