The worst bus routes in Brisbane have been revealed and the ones that are perennially late in the west use the Centenary Motorway, such as the Riverhills to Spring Hill route and the Mount Ommaney to Queen St, CBD route.

The Brisbane City Council enumerated these late routes:

  • P457 – Riverhills to Spring Hill
  • P456 – Mount Ommaney to Queen St., CBD
  • P458 – Fig Tree Pocket to Queen St., CBD
  • P426 – Kenmore Hills to Queen St., CBD

The council realises that one of the main reasons why these routes arrive late is because of the traffic congestion on the Centenary Motorway. The motorway has long been the topic of discussion and there have been plenty of proposals for its upgrade, yet the peak hours remain horrible.

In April of this year, RACQ named it the slowest motorway during the morning and afternoon journeys. Their findings showed that speed in the am is approximately at 22km/h and 26km/h in the afternoon.

Because the said motorway is under the State Government, the Department of Main Roads and Transport responded to this and said that the Master Plan for Centenary Motorway (Toowong to Ipswich) is already being prepared and will be ready early next year. It will include all recommendations to improve the traffic flow on the motorway.

As of now, the council redirects buses through the Legacy Way and has been providing bus upgrades on the Inner City Bypass to improve bus services on key peak hour routes here in the west.
