Project Description

Upgrade Lytton Road (a part of the Wynnum Road corridor) between Latrobe Street and Canning Bridge to improve safety and increase capacity to cater for future traffic growth. Lytton Road forms part of the Wynnum Road Corridor which is designated as an arterial route in the City Plan road hierarchy and as a regional radial road in the Transport Plan for Brisbane 2008 – 2026. Its primary transport function is to provide an access between suburban/commercial catchments in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane and the CBD, and beyond.

It is a strategic link in Brisbane’s road network and provides a connection to Clem 7 as well as an important link for commuters between the eastern suburbs of Brisbane and Fortitude Valley, and the CBD. It also links with the southern suburbs of Brisbane via Wellington Road and Latrobe Street and the northern suburbs of Brisbane via the Story Bridge.
