Transforming Travel in Brisbane - World City Here We Come!

The Brisbane City Council has announced a great scheme which enables Senior Residents to travel free around our great city during off-peak times. 
 
Eligible residents that hold a TransLink senior go card and Seniors Card +go card will be entitled to free travel from 8.30am-3.30pm and 7pm-6am Monday to Friday on city buses, CityCats and ferries.

 

Another great travel around Brisbane is by bike, especially since the Woollongabba Bikeway opened in July this year. The 2.5km stretch provides a safe passage for cyclists travelling along Stanley Street and Annerley Road with dedicated bike lanes, separators in key locations and three floating bus stops.

 

The council’s Green Bridges program has five pedestrian bridges in the pipeline, with the first business case for the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge now complete. The findings of the business case showed this new bridge would carry up to 5300 trips each weekday in 2021, which would result 230 fewer cars and 300 fewer bus trips using river crossings per day. This bridge would link Kangaroo Point to the CBD.

 

The five proposed pedestrian crossings are part of a four year, $519 million plan by council to beat congestion in and around the city. The other pedestrian crossings are planned for Breakfast Creek and Belbowrie, and bridges from St Lucia to West End, and Toowong to West End. 

 

The first new double-decker CityCat is set to hit the water in November with a carrying capacity of 170 passengers on each boat, including seating on the upper deck for 20. Another six boats will follow over the next four years as part of the $30 million commitment. 

 

The $944 million Brisbane Metro is a key element in the transport mix for the city, with the proposal including 60 new vehicles that will service 18 stations, and a new tunnel under Adelaide Street. The project has predicted to have the capacity to carry around 22,000 passengers per hour, with the main aim to reduce congestion and cut travel times.

 

Hannah Schuhmann said it’s great to live in such a progressive city where there is a huge focus on ease of movement around the city; everyone benefits! Infrastructure is key as Brisbane is in the midst of a massive transformation as $12 billion worth of new developments take shape including the Queen’s Wharf Development, Brisbane’s new runway, and the International Cruise Ship Terminal.
