Brisbane's growing northern suburbs receive transport boost

June 20, 2012

The completion of a major public transport project in Brisbane, designed to increase the efficiency of services to Brisbane's north, could boost the area's popularity with home buyers.

The three-year overhaul of the northern suburbs transport system was officially completed on June 16 - making public travel around the city more efficient, while also reducing traffic congestion.

For those looking at buying property in the area the new busway will be an attractive feature, with bus frequency every three minutes during peak hour and seven to eight minutes at off-peak periods.

"One busway lane can carry the same number of commuters as nine traffic lanes on Gympie Road," Queensland premier Campbell Newman said.

The busway, which includes a 1.5km tunnel, will connect with the eastern and south-east busways to major stops such as Griffith University, the University of Queensland and Mater and Princess Alexandra hospitals.

"Now residents can enjoy all the benefits of living near a busway - quick access to one of the most reliable and fastest ways to travel across Brisbane," minister for transport and main roads Scott Emerson said. 

"This new busway brings high-quality mass transit to the growing northern suburbs."
