Brisbane Metro

As Brisbane’s population continues to grow, so too does the demand for public transport services in and around the city.

Challenge

With Brisbane residents facing longer daily commutes, traffic bottlenecks, congestion and public transport constraints, Brisbane City Council is exploring new transport options for Australia’s third-largest capital.

RPS was engaged to provide commercial advisory services into the management and development of the business case for the project.

Involved from the project’s earliest phases, our advisory specialists were engaged to develop a preliminary business case in 2017, later producing a detailed business case for the project.

Solution

To ensure the business case would stand up to scrutiny from a range of stakeholders, RPS coordinated and managed technical inputs from various subject matter experts and advisors while meeting the requirement of various state and national frameworks.

Since submitting the detailed business case which articulated Brisbane Metro’s expected benefits, costs and impacts, we’ve continued to support the project through strategic advice and engagement with stakeholders across a number of Queensland and Australian government agencies.

Currently in the design and construction stage, Brisbane Metro services are scheduled to commence operations in 2023.
