Bielby Holdings is delighted to announce our appointment by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to construct the Northern Transitway, which will provide a high-quality public transport corridor in Brisbane’s north.
The project is part of the state’s Passenger Transport Infrastructure Investment Program (PTIIP) and will see 2.3km of dedicated in and out-bound bus lanes constructed between Kedron and Chermside along Gympie Road.
Enabling high-frequency services, the new infrastructure will save up to six minutes of travel time on some services during peak periods, improve safety and increase capacity, benefitting over 5,000 people during peak periods each weekday. The project will also improve accessibility at bus stops, with enhancements to kerb ramps along pathways improving access and safety for pedestrians and bike riders.
Road safety will play a critical part in the project by removing unsignaled right turns along the corridor. New traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of Gympie Road and Boothby Street, including a dedicated right-turn lane and U-turn facility.
Construction commences mid-2021 and will continue for approximately two years.
Bielby Holdings’ Managing Director, Adam Edwards, welcomed the organisation’s appointment to the project.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this contract to deliver a vital piece of public transport infrastructure that will bring significant benefits to residents, businesses and travellers in Brisbane’s north.”
“Our team welcomes the opportunity to continue our strong working partnership with TMR. We are excited to commence the project and support the Department’s vision to create integrated transport networks that support multimodal users.”
