Connecting Brisbane

Connecting Brisbane

Connecting Brisbane released on 6 June 2017, outlines a roadmap for the future of Brisbane’s public transport system.

Connecting Brisbane will see Brisbane's transformation into a vibrant world city through a modern, high-frequency mass transit system.

The vision is for a high-frequency public transport 'trunk' service with feeder services, that promotes the complementarity of the Cross River Rail and Brisbane Metro projects.

Projections for the coming four years see major infrastructure investment proposed in the centre of the rail and busway systems unlocking capacity in the core of the city’s public transport networks.

These, in turn, will facilitate the extension and improvement of the public transport system throughout SEQ. An integrated approach to public transport investment in Brisbane and surrounding areas will help to transform the SEQ region from a region of cities to a true city region.

The Connecting Brisbane (PDF14 MB) strategy includes two main reform tasks:

    provide infrastructure, particularly at the core of our transportation system, to unlock existing capacity and overcome current constraints and avoid congestion

    improve services with a network providing more frequent, integrated services on a ‘turn up and go’ high-frequency trunk network supported by feeder services.

The public transport reforms will pave the way for future extension and improvement of the network, particularly in linking the identified growth corridors and areas.

Connecting Brisbane has been jointly developed by Department of Infrastructure Local Government and Planning, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and Brisbane City Council in consultation with the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Connecting Brisbane’s plan is consistent with the federal government's Smart Cities Plan to support productive, accessible, liveable cities that attract talent, encourage innovation, and create jobs and growth.

Connecting Brisbane

Greetings,

RAIL Back On Track is delighted that the State Government and the Brisbane City Council have joined together to present Cross River Rail and the Brisbane Metro as  Connecting Brisbane - a roadmap for the future described as:

" The vision is for a high frequency public transport 'trunk' service with feeder services, that promotes the complementarity of the Cross River Rail and Brisbane Metro projects."

http://www.dilgp.qld.gov.au/infrastructure/connecting-brisbane.html

We suggested this was the case last March and congratulate BCC and the State Government for transcending party politics and positioning both projects for delivery.

Connecting Brisbane is not only talking the walk but is walking the walk!

Best wishes,
Robert

CRR and Brisbane ' Metro ' are an integrated public transport solution

Good Morning,

It is now appropriate to join Cross River Rail (CRR) and the Brisbane ' Metro ' Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) plans together conceptually and promote the integrated public transport solution they are for Brisbane and SEQ. Both projects are integrated from an operational perspective, CRR and BRT ' Metro'  should not be seen as competing projects, but as two elements of the single public transport solution.

Presenting both projects in this light will be seen by many, including the Federal Government and Infrastructure Australia, as the correct path now to public transport resilience, capacity, and hence successful delivery and outcomes. Both projects will provide the economic stimulus that is needed.

It is sad that the  Queensland LNP seem to be the only major player that does not understand the need for Cross River Rail.
[ LNP Opposition Media release  STATEMENT: Brisbane Metro http://www.timnicholls.com.au/statement-brisbane-metro/ ]

The Queensland LNP has previously stamped their public transport credentials as very mediocre with such absurd proposals as the ' Cleveland Solution ' and the ' Bus and Train ' tunnel.  They are consigning themselves to irrelevancy once again unless they come on board with the integrated public transport solution that CRR and the BRT ' Metro ' now promises for SEQ and Brisbane.

Best wishes
Robert
