About the upgrade
Brisbane City Council is upgrading Kingsford Smith Drive to reduce traffic congestion and improve road safety. The upgrade involves widening the road from four to six lanes between Theodore Street at Eagle Farm and Cooksley Street at Hamilton. It also includes improvement works between Cooksley Street and Breakfast Creek Road at Albion.

Construction will be undertaken across two major work zones for the duration of the project:

- east – Racecourse Road to Theodore Street.
It also includes improvement works between Cooksley Street and Breakfast Creek Road at Albion.
