Traffic Updates & Notices

Traffic and weather event updates that are likely to impact patrons attending performances

Be prepared to ensure you don’t miss the start of your performance

QPAC is located in a vibrant part of the city, with many events occurring, particularly on the weekends. Busy crowds, traffic changes and Queensland Rail track work can sometimes cause travel delays, which may affect your arrival time at QPAC. To avoid missing the start of your performance, we strongly suggest you plan your transport and leave home early to avoid any delays and arrive in good time to enjoy your show. 

Keep updated via, and for planning your safe travel to QPAC.

There are a number exciting new construction projects underway in and around QPAC. For more info, click here.

  • Victoria Bridge closed – from Sunday, 24 January 2021

    Victoria Bridge is permanently closed to private vehicles from 24 January 2021 to facilitate both the Brisbane Metro project and Citylink Cycleway trial. This includes closure of the turn to and from Melbourne Street to the Cultural Centre car parks.

    The Cultural Centre car parks, including the Performing Arts car park, are only accessible via Stanley Place (adjacent to the State Library of Queensland).

    Patrons travelling from the north or west can access Stanley Place from the William Jolly Bridge or Montague Rd.

    Patrons travelling from the south or east can travel on Cordelia St through to Montague Rd or travel along Grey St and turn right into Stanley Place at Peel St. Please note this section of Grey St can become congested due to current construction and roadworks and may not be the fastest route.

    If taking the Grey St route, after turning right into Stanley Place, patrons will proceed around the roundabout turning right before GoMA (effectively completing a u-turn), to then turn left just after the Stanley Place bus and Taxi zone to enter the Cultural Centre Tunnel.

    If approaching from Montague Rd, patrons will proceed past GoMA and then through the roundabout to turn left just after the Stanley Place bus and taxi zone to enter the Cultural Centre Tunnel.

    More information on these projects can be found on the Brisbane City Council website:

  • Grey Street road closures – from Tuesday, 6 October 2020

    Starting from Tuesday, 6 October 2020, parts of Grey Street adjacent to QPAC are closed to allow for work on Brisbane Metro and the New Performing Arts Venue at QPAC. While two-way traffic will continue along Grey Street, capacity and speed limits will be decreased which may cause delays.

    During this time:

    The footpath and southbound lane of Grey Street is closed between the QPAC pedestrian tunnel and Russell Street.

    Vehicle lanes narrow to allow two-way traffic in the current northbound lane of Grey Street; a 20km per hour speed limit is in place.

    QPAC visitors crossing Grey Street on foot must cross at the lights at Melbourne or Russell Streets; fencing is in place to prevent crossing at other locations.

    Russell Street closed to public vehicles between 6.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday; drop-off of Playhouse patrons with mobility difficulties can still be made during this time via traffic controller.

    Patron set down areas are located on Grey Street outside Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and at the entrance to The Bistro at QPAC.

    Taxi zone on Grey Street remains unchanged.
