OMTrak set to hand over another series of Busways in Queensland

By November 11, 2011 No Comments

OMTrak have successfully handed over a large portion of the current busways around Brisbane and is set to handover The Eastern Busway and The Northern Busway in the New Year.

The Northern Busway is part of Airport Link, one of the largest infrastructure projects ever built in Australia.

The Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) will greatly expand the Brisbane busway network and enhance public transport access for northside residents.

Once operational, the busway is expected to halve the average travel time between the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and Kedron. The Northern Busway will be a two-lane, two-way road for buses only, connecting the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital to Kedron via the Lutwyche Road and Gympie Road corridor.

The busway will be underground for approximately 1.5km from Truro Street, Windsor through to Sadlier Street, Kedron, surfacing at the new, state-of-the-art Lutwyche and Kedron Brook busway stations.

On completion in mid 2012, the Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) will be handed over to the State Government for operation by TransLink.
