Federal Labor Committed to Duplicating Linkfield Road Overpass
The Federal Labor Opposition has committed to invest $60 million to duplicate the Linkfield Road overpass on the Gympie Arterial Road. At present, two lanes merge into one just before drivers turn north on to the Gympie Arterial Road which exacerbates traffic congestion in the area. In addition, the state’s peak roads body, the RACQ, identified the need for duplication as a key priority
The project was identified as essential by Federal Labor because Linkfield Road was a congestion choke point for people in Warner, Albany Creek and Strathpine, as well as businesses in Brendale. The upgrade would reduce local traffic and improve safety for drivers on Brisbane’s Northside.
Furthermore, Federal Labor proposed expanding the capacity of the passenger rail network by investing in the Cross River Rail, which will clear the way for more frequent train services, particularly across peak hour as part of their transport plan. In addition to the Linkfield Road investment, Labor also committed to expand the availability of parking at the Mango Hill train station.
Federal Labor highlighted delivered transport infrastructure in Northern Brisbane including the Redcliffe Peninsula Line as well as significant upgrades to both the Bruce Highway and the Gateway Motorway.
