This assessment brief outlines the Queensland Government's plan to modify existing road space for bus lanes to connect high-growth suburbs to the metropolitan public transport network and CBD. The new bus lanes will improve access to jobs, education and services.

The Queensland Government is seeking $116 million in Commonwealth funding for the project.
The Office of the Infrastructure Coordinator recommended that the project be included on the Infrastructure Priority List at Threshold, with conditions.
