About the project

A bypass tunnel between Kedron and Carseldine is being considered as a potential solution to ease congestion and reduce traffic on Gympie Road.

The proposed tolled tunnel could deliver a range of potential benefits including faster travel times in Brisbane’s northern region while also reducing pressure on Gympie Road and return the corridor to local road users, as well as public and active transport.

Gympie Road is the backbone of north Brisbane’s local traffic network and major arterial road linking Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, making it one of Queensland’s busiest, most congested roads. A new tunnel solution could also benefit business and industry by improving productivity and efficiency for freight and commercial vehicles.

Community consultation has now closed

Initial community consultation seeking feedback on the proposed Gympie Road Bypass Tunnel was open from Monday 30 October to Sunday 3 December, and has now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated and provided valuable feedback.

Community feedback and input received during consultation will be used to inform an investment proposal being prepared for the State Government for consideration by mid-2024.

Should the proposal proceed to an investment decision, there will be more opportunities for the community to provide input as the project progresses.
