Brisbane City Council has completed a major upgrade of the Green Camp Road corridor, reducing congestion and improving safety for all road users.
The Green Camp Road corridor upgrade was delivered in partnership with the Australian Government and is part of a $1.3 billion investment by Council to get residents home quicker and safer.
Green Camp Road is used by 30,000 vehicles every day and this critical upgrade has widened the corridor to a minimum of four lanes, cutting travel times by up to 50 per cent.
Prior to this upgrade, 57 serious crashes occured along the corridor over a 7 year period between 2010 to 2017. This upgrade will cut the risk of future accidents by more than half.
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.
Green Camp Road is a major corridor between the CBD and the bayside and this upgrade will boost safety for all road users, with new on-road cycle lanes and a shared pathway.
This upgrade is offering immediate benefits to all road users, as well as future-proofing the corridor by delivering the infrastructure needed for the growing Brisbane region.
