// Brisbane’s First New Vehicle Bridge Since 2010

The Centenary Bridge Upgrade in Jindalee proposes a new three-lane northbound bridge, rehabilitation of the existing bridges to three lanes southbound, plus opportunities for improved active transport. This will greatly improve traffic flow of Centenary Motorway between Toowong and Ellen Grove.

The existing bridge carries more than 85,000 vehicles a day and current traffic modelling shows that by 2036 about 152,000 vehicles per day will cross it.

The Queensland Government has committed $132 million for design and construction. The Australian Government’s commitment of $112 million brings the total to $244 million. Construction is expected to start in 2022.

This extra capacity would provide greater efficiency and travel-time reliability between Brisbane’s CBD and the western suburbs, between local destinations, and along the entire Centenary Motorway. Key features include:

  • A new 3-lane northbound bridge.
  • Remediation of the existing bridges to create three southbound lanes.
  • Upgraded active transport facilities for pedestrians and people who ride bikes, with improved connections to the Western Freeway Bikeway and local destinations, including retention of the Jindalee Skate Park.
  • Greater efficiency and travel-time reliability.
