Inner City Bypass

The 5 kilometre Inner City Bypass (ICB) is Brisbane’s busiest arterial road, linking AirportLinkM7, Clem7, Legacy Way, Go Between Bridge, Lutwyche Road and Kingsford Smith Drive. The ICB plays a key role in Brisbane’s road network and is the only non-toll road Transurban operates. The ICB has eight lanes, four lanes westbound and four lanes eastbound.

Completion date

The ICB was built by Brisbane City Council and opened in 2002.

In 2017, Transurban Queensland funded and delivered the ICB Upgrade on behalf of Brisbane City Council. The upgrade was completed in 2018 and provided increased capacity on the ICB, improved travel times and safety for all road users, and improved connectivity to Legacy Way and the wider road network.

Following completion of the upgrade, Transurban Queensland now manages operations, maintenance and incident response along the ICB.

Ownership

Transurban Queensland operates and maintains the ICB on behalf of Brisbane City Council. Under a concession agreement, Transurban Queensland provides operations and incident response on ICB until 2065 as well as routine maintenance services on a 10 + 10 year contract.

Completion date

The Toowoomba Bypass opened to traffic on 8 September 2019.

Logan Enhancement Project

Construction of the Logan Enhancement Project is now complete. The project upgraded parts of the Logan and Gateway Extension motorways.

Project work included:

  • upgrades to key interchanges
  • new access ramps
  • road widening
  • new cycling and walking paths
  • better protection and new habitat for wildlife

The project was awarded an ‘Excellent’ Design Rating by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.

Benefits

The Logan Enhancement Project created more than 1,300 direct construction jobs and delivered benefits to the economy, community, industry and environment, including:

  • enhanced safety – up to 59 per cent reduction in accidents caused by merging, weaving and stop-starting
  • travel-time-savings – motorists are now getting 20 minutes back in their day
  • reliability – more consistent journey times
  • enhanced connectivity via new south-facing ramps

Timing and cost

Detailed design started in early 2017 and construction began in June 2017. Construction was completed in August 2019.

This project was delivered at no cost to the Queensland Government. Transurban Queensland financed 100 per cent of the project’s $512 million cost.
