Brisbane City Council has extended its trial of the ‘Left turn on red’ rule to 15 select intersections across Brisbane.
This new rule means that vehicles approaching the red signal are required to stop and give way to vehicles and pedestrians, but can now turn left on the red signal if safe to do so.
‘Left turn on red’ signage has been installed at participating intersections, with the usual road rules still applying everywhere else. The roll out of the new rule is aimed at decreasing travel times and easing congestion around the city.
Here’s the full list of intersections where the new ‘Left turn on red’ rule applies:
- Bowen Street into Lutwyche Road, Windsor
- Maud Street into Breakfast Creek Road, Newstead
- Hellawell Road into Gowan Road, Sunnybank Hills
- Edge Street into Creek Road, Murarrie
- Spence Street into Broadwater Road, Mt Gravatt East.
- Wolverhampton Street into Webster Road, Stafford
- Bell Street (eastern leg) into Main Street, Kangaroo Point
- Service Road (McDonald’s side) into New Cleveland Road, Tingalpa
- Yeronga Street into Fairfield Road, Yeronga
- Durack Street into Ipswich Road, Moorooka
- Mira Street into Poinsettia Street, Inala
- Finsbury Street into Newmarket Road, Newmarket
- Edmondstone Road into Breakfast Creek Road, Newstead
- Glenealy Street into Bracken Ridge Road, Bracken Ridge
- Constitution Road into Lutwyche Road, Windsor.
We urge all of our clients and supporters to be aware of the new rule and exercise caution when crossing at these intersections.
