Bulimba Peninsula Transport and Congestion Study

We are undertaking the Bulimba Peninsula Transport and Congestion Study to understand the pressures on road, active and public transport on the peninsula.

The study is a multi-modal transport and traffic assessment of the Bulimba Peninsula, including the suburbs of Bulimba, Balmoral and Hawthorne.

The study will investigate ongoing and emerging traffic and transport pressures relating to circulation within the peninsula by private vehicle, public transport and active transport; and key connections via the river, road and rail network to adjacent suburbs and core employment centres.


  • Reduces peak hour congestion
  • Improves network efficiency
  • Increases traffic flow
  • Better active transport

Community consultation

A 6-week community listening program was undertaken to gain a thorough understanding of the transport pressures and opportunities in the area. The project team have received informative feedback on a diverse range of transport issues within the study area through the study’s online interactive map, the study survey and face-to-face engagement booths across the study area.

The project team also hosted a consultation workshop with community representatives in mid-September 2018 to validate the information gathered through open community engagement and to identify any areas for further investigation.

Next steps

The feedback from community engagement is being used to steer the options development phase of the study. An insights report resulting from the study is currently under development and will inform future planning for the Bulimba Peninsula.
