Road changes for Brisbane Metro construction

From mid-July 2022 until 2024, road directions and access around the Queensland Culture Centre will change. 

Access to the Museum and Art Gallery car park (P2) from the south will be via Montague Road and proceeding through Stanley Place. Access from the north will remain unchanged with turning left after the William Jolly Bridge. Reduced speed limits will apply in these areas. We recommend familiarising yourself with the changes to help plan your visit.

The Cultural Centre bus stop and South Brisbane train station will continue to operate with directional signage for pedestrians.
