The Task

Queensland Univeristy of Technology (QUT) commissioned MRCagney Pty Ltd to undertake an independent and expert study of Transport & Traffic in and around QUT’s Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove campuses. This will assist QUT in the preparation of a new master plan to guide the future development of its physical estate. 

The overall transport and traffic ambitions for the QUT Estate Master Plan are to: 

  • Encourage greater use of public transport services to and from the campuses, through improved access, availability and affordability 
  • Improve active transport such as bicycle and pedestrian access to and from QUT’s campuses 
  • Improve access and movement corridors to and within QUT’s campuses and minimise movement conflicts of pedestrians, bicycles, motorbikes, car and other vehicles 
  •  Establish the location, limits and key strategies for private parking on campus; and 
  • Reduce single occupant vehicle travel, providing options for ride sharing, carpooling, and other modes of transport, and access to new technology for personal decision making on best way to travel.


The Approach

The project was completed in two stages. 

Phase 1 of the project included a thorough review of all transport modes through the following tasks: 

  • A review of upcoming external transport plans, projects, best practice and external trends in transport; 
  • A baseline assessment and SWOT analysis of QUT’s current transport environment.
  • The formation and prioritisation of recommendations. 

While Phase 2 of the report involved the selection and progression of key recommendations with a view to positioning QUT well to respond to the longer-term issues, challenges, and opportunities.

Deliverables and Outcomes 

The report deliverables included a summary Phase 1 and Phase 2 reports and a public facing summary report. The recommendations include initiatives in the areas of:

  • On-campus Wayfinding 
  •  Inter-Campus Bus Shuttle Shared Services 
  • U- Pass development 
  • Travel Behaviour Change 
  •  Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and 
  • Advocacy Strategy
