These Are Officially Brisbane’s Slowest Roads
Think you drive to work on one of Brisbane’s slowest roads? Do you complain each afternoon about peak hour traffic?
Well now we know which roads are officially the slowest for the first half of 2016.
According to the Brisbane City Council, Stanley Street takes out the title of slowest road during morning peak hour.
For the trip home it was Gympie Road on Brisbane’s north side that earned the less-than-impressive accolade.
Council’s Greater Brisbane Key Corridors Performance Report found the average speed during peak hour was just 17.2km/h on Stanley Street and 20.11km/h on Gympie Road.
Not to be forgotten, was Coronation Drive which averaged just 19.94km/h during the inbound trip of a morning.
However, it’s not all bad news on Brisbane’s roads.
The big winners were people travelling to and from the Western Suburbs, with the Legacy Way Tunnel slashing travel times on some of our major roads.
The number of vehicles on Milton Road dropped by eight per cent, while Moggill Road dropped by six per cent in comparison to last year.
And while Coronation Drive may earn the title of one of Brisbane’s slowest roads, it is improving with speed increasing by nine per cent during the morning peak.
Overall, speeds had increased across Brisbane’s roads by four per cent.
Kicking the trend however, was Kingsford Smith Drive which had slowed by 5km/h during the morning commute.
With plans to widen Kingsford Smith Drive underway, those motorists may eventually get a reprieve when work finishes in 2019.
