Victoria Point Bypass Planning Study

We have undertaken a planning study to investigate options to reduce congestion around the Victoria Point, which includes Cleveland-Redland Bay Road and the unofficial Victoria Point Bypass.

We are 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 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.

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

Benefits

  • Improves safety
  • Increases capacity
  • Improves network efficiency
  • Reduces peak hour congestion
  • Better road access
  • Reduces travel time
  • Increases traffic flow

Key features

  • Investigation of an alternative route along Redland City Council roads including Springacre Road, Kingfisher Road, Bunker Road and Double Jump Road.
  • In November 2017, Queensland Government announced it is committed to working with the Redland City Council on a long-term plan to ease congestion and improve safety in Victoria Point. We will work with Redland City Council, that own and operate the bypass roads, to complete the study.

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.
