One Of Brisbane’s Busiest Roads Is Getting An Upgrade!
Expect some traffic pain next year when you hit the Inner City Bypass – but it’s all for a good reason.
Work will begin on the arterial road from March as part of an upgrade that will see it increased to four lanes in each direction.
Construction will focus on the 2km stretch between the RNA and Legacy Way tunnels.
Announcing the plans on Tuesday, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said it would take two years to complete the $31.5 million upgrade.
“The works themselves means there will be periods of time where there will be a slower travel environment during the construction phase,” he said.
“But they’re not actually going to be closing additional lanes during the peak periods, so they’ll be able to work within the constraints.”
A new westbound on-ramp will also be built from Bowen Bridge Road and the Inner Northern Busway onto the ICB for all vehicles to use.
Construction will also focus on reducing travel times for buses with a bus priority lane at the Herston Road exit to be introduced.
Preliminary works will begin next month ahead of the March construction date.
More than 100,000 vehicles travel the corridor every day.
