Kingsford Smith Drive Upgrade

Project Overview

The Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade involve widening the road from four to six lanes between Theodore Street at Eagle Farm and Cooksley Street at Hamilton. It also included improvement works between Cooksley Street and Breakfast Creek Road at Albion.

In addition to providing increased road capacity to accommodate future traffic volumes, the upgrade will also deliver significantly improved pedestrian and cycle facilities for both existing residents and the developing Northshore precinct.

The project also delivers upgraded public transport facilities with indented bus stops that cater for future increases in bus services along the corridor and reduce delays.

This critical upgrade will create an entry statement to Brisbane, transforming one of the city’s most significant routes into a vibrant urban corridor with the Brisbane River as the centrepiece.
