Urban Congestion Fund

The Government will invest $4 billion over the next 10 years through the Urban Congestion Fund, to reduce congestion in urban areas. This includes $3 billion of additional funding committed in the 2019-20 Budget. Funding will support upgrades to the urban road network to reduce congestion and to ensure commuters get home sooner and safer by:

    • reducing travel times;
    • reducing vehicle operating costs;
    • delivering a more reliable road network for commuters and freight; and
    • addressing local bottlenecks.

A $500 million Commuter Car Park Fund has been established within the Urban Congestion Fund to invest in commuter car park upgrades that encourage greater use of public transport.

On 28 January 2019, the Prime Minister, the Hon Scott Morrison MP announced a $243.25 million investment in South East Queensland. Urban Congestion Fund PDF: 96 KB ReadSpeaker
