Construction is now underway on the $235 million, four-lane Beams Road overpass in Brisbane.

Construction is now underway on the $235 million, four-lane Beams Road overpass in Brisbane.

The current rail level crossing on Beams Road will be replaced with an overpass to separate road and rail.

This will include the construction of a new overpass bridge, removal of existing rail level crossing boom gates and upgrading the existing Carseldine park ‘n’ ride facilities and new access road.

The project will aim to increase road safety and improve pedestrian and active transport connections. The project will also help reduce congestion, resulting in better traffic flow and a smoother commute, particularly during peak traffic.

Works include site office establishment, installation of barriers, signage and line marking along with median removal, paving the way for the overpass.

Federal Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Senator for Queensland Anthony Chisholm said the project is expected to support around 185 direct jobs.

“The Beams Road level crossing sits right at the heart of Brisbane’s growing northern suburbs and with an extra 2.2 million people set to call south-east Queensland home by 2046, we’re getting on with delivering the crucial infrastructure upgrades that Brisbane needs,” Chisholm said.

The Federal Government has committed $56.24 million towards the project, with the Queensland Government contributing $138.76 million and a commitment of $40 million from Brisbane City Council.

The overpass is expected to be completed in late 2026.
