AUSTRALIA Brisbane’s busway network is nearing completion, with the Windsor to Kedron section of the Northern Busway having been inspected by Queensland premier Anna Bligh. The A$444m Northern Busway project is more than 60% complete with construction of the 1.5km busway tunnel finished and a mechanical and electrical fit-out now underway.

By 2016 this congestion busting project will mean north-siders have access to a bus every 30 seconds in peak hour, increasing to a bus every 20 seconds by 2026.

On completion, the Busway will be handed to the Queensland Government for final fit-out and commissioning by south-east transport authority, TransLink.
