Green Camp Road Corridor Upgrade finished!

Brisbane City Council has completed a major upgrade of the Green Camp Road corridor, reducing congestion and improving safety for all road users.

The project has also delivered major upgrades to the Tilley Road and Green Camp Road intersection as well as the Rickertt Road and Green Camp Road intersection.

Council is taking real action on congestion across the city, with 90 congestion-busting projects to get residents home quicker and safer with more travel options.
