Plans For “World Class” CBD Transit Boulevard

In another big transport announcement for the City, Brisbane City Council has released its plans to convert Adelaide Street with a new boulevard and tunnel for the Brisbane Metro, reports brisbanedevelopment.com. 

 

The draft vision for the transformation of the hundred-year old transit corridor is one of a “world class transit boulevard” that would include streamlined bus stops, a new pocket park and a tree-line boulevard for pedestrian use. 

 

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the plan is in line with changing needs within the community, and will ensure residents get home safer and quicker.

 

“Adelaide Street is already one of Brisbane’s most well-known streetscapes and has served as a transport hub for more than a century – first as a dirt track and then for trams.” 

 

“As our city experiences increased pedestrian and public transport activity, we want to transform this corridor into a world-class transit boulevard.

 

“The $944 million Brisbane Metro is a key driver for this vision, with the project delivering a new tunnel under Adelaide Street to link North Quay to the King George Square Bus Station.

 

“We need to plan a desirable entry point into the heart of the city ahead of the high-frequency Brisbane Metro, which is expected to increase passenger numbers to King George Square by 120 per cent,” Cr Schrinner said.

 

The next steps for the draft vision is community consultation, which will be open for feedback until 24 June, 2019. 

 

Hannah Schuhmann said these plans for further transport investment are vital, as the city will need the infrastructure to support the predicted 30% increase in visitation by 2020.  Many big projects that are on the horizon will contribute to the increase, such as Queens Wharf, Cross River Rail, and the Brisbane Quarter to name but a few. We are well on our way to being a World City!
