During Parliamentary Budget Estimates on Tuesday 10 August 2021, I asked about the Government's SEQ Bus Network Review and more high-frequency bus routes on the west side, including between Bardon and Toowong.
You can read the answer below or in the official Queensland Parliament Record of Proceedings (Hansard).
Mr BERKMAN: My first question is to the director-general. On pages 53 and 54 the new SEQ
Regional Transport Plan shows the long-term plan for public transport out to 2041. It includes new
high-frequency bus routes between Bardon and Toowong and others in my electorate. The question is:
should we expect to see those new routes delivered as part of the SEQ Bus Network Review, which is
set to start in 2022?
Mr Scales: As the minister outlined earlier today, the creating better connections consultation
program is now out. It has a 10-year horizon. It has five key priorities and 20 initiatives. We are asking
the population about what we are doing with the transport network, so it is embedded in that. There will
be an opportunity to comment on that within the consultation process, but I cannot really speculate on
what may or may not happen that far in advance.
