Legacy Way

Legacy Way is a 4.6km twin two-lane tunnel in Brisbane connecting Toowong in the west to the Inner City Bypass at Kelvin Grove. Featuring world-class safety systems, it runs between the Western Freeway and our Clem7 and AirportLinkM7 assets.

The tunnel enables motorists to travel from the Western Freeway at Toowong to the Inner City Bypass at Kelvin Grove in just 4 minutes.

The tunnel was named to honour the men and women of the Australian Defence Force and their families. One cent from every toll collected is donated to the Legacy charity.

Tunnel safety

The Legacy Way tunnel clearance height is 4.6 metres.

If you drive a vehicle over this height you won't be able to use the tunnels. Detection systems outside the tunnel notify drivers of height limits. Warning signals are initialised if the height limit is breached. All vehicles exceeding the height limit will be advised to take an alternate route.

If drivers of overheight vehicles proceed, entry will be prevented by an overheight barrier structure.

We also monitor the internal and external air quality of the tunnel.  Air quality monitors in and outside the tunnel constantly measure the presence of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), fine particles and visibility levels.
