Detail:

Site visit to Legacy Way Control Room
Presented by Michael Eyles, Networks Tunnel Manager

Legacy Way is a 4.6 km twin tunnel connecting the Western Freeway (M5) in Toowong to the Inner city Bypass (ICB).  World-class safety features include variable speed and message signs, advanced fire safety systems and cameras automatically detecting variations in traffic flow. Legacy Way was opened to traffic in June 2015. The Legacy Way Traffic Control Room also manages the ICB, a 4.5km motorway that bypasses the Brisbane CBD and connects the Pacific Motorway and GBB Bridge at Hale Street to Kingsford Smith drive, Clem7 and AirportLink tunnels.

The control room is staffed 24 hours a day and responds to traffic incidents and manages minor upgrades and routine maintenance of the tunnel’s state-of-the-art systems. The Traffic Incident Management Service provided manages transportation of dangerous goods, motor vehicle accidents, debris recovery, vehicular and heavy vehicular breakdowns, cyclist incidents, animals on the road and contraflows.

 

If you missed the visit to the CLEM 7 Control Room last year, then this is a great opportunity to see an incredible facility in action.

Following the site visit there will be the opportunity to meet up somewhere close by for a Christmas drink and to stay on for a meal should you wish to do so.  This will be at attendees own cost.  Venue TBA.

Please note that parking is very limited in the vicinity of the Control Room complex – it is suggested you consider taking public transport to this event.
