The Brisbane Metro will see the adoption of a high frequency rapid transit transport system along 21 kilometres of existing busway between the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and Eight Mile Plains. It includes 18 stations, including 11 interchange stations, two of which will link to the State Government's planned Cross River Rail.

The Metro will use 60 trackless rubber-tyred metro vehicles, each with a capacity of 150 passengers, along two routes:

- Metro 1: RBWH busway station to UQ Lakes busway station; and
- Metro 2: Eight Mile Plains busway station to Roma Street busway station.

The redesigned network is intended to provide better interchange opportunities, deliver more services to the suburbs and complement the Cross River Rail project.

Key design elements include:

- conversion of Victoria Bridge to a green bridge;
- construction of a tunnel underneath Adelaide street connecting to King George Square Station;
- construction of a new underground Cultural Centre station, providing an uninterrupted connection - between the South East Busway and Victoria Bridge; and
- removal of the Melbourne street busway portal.

$430 million in funding was allocated towards the project over forward estimates in the Brisbane City Council's (BCC) 2017-18 Annual Plan and Budget. A further $300 million was allocated to the project in the Budget, with the revenue assumption for this contribution over the forward estimates based on an expected contribution from State and Australian Governments.

In the 2017-18 Budget, the Federal Government said the project has the potential to be supported through the $10 billion National Rail Program, subject to a positive business case.

A preliminary business case was completed in May 2017 finding a Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) of 1.91. Traditional and availability payment Public Private Partnership (PPP) procurement models are being assessed as delivery options for the project. The business case was submitted to Infrastructure Australia (IA) for review in August 2017.

IA released its evaluation of the project in March 2018 concluding it is confident the project will maintain a BCR greater than one under any reasonable scenario. IA has listed the project as short term High Priority Project on its Infrastructure Priority List.

In February 2018, the BCC announced the project would comprise six packages of work, comprising:

- Early Works;
- Vehicle Design and Delivery;
- Inner-City Infrastructure works;
- Suburban Infrastructure works;
- Depot Works; and
- Systems Design and Delivery.

BCC's 2018-19 Budget sees circa $708 million allocated over forward estimates towards Brisbane Metro out of the $3.1 billion Budget. The allocation confirms the Council’s commitment to funding circa two-thirds of the project cost, with the Federal Government committing the remaining $300 million in the 2018-19 Budget. The Federal Government funding will be provided between FY2018-19 and FY2023-24.

A draft design report for the project was released in April 2018, providing a non-statuory assessment of the concept design and feasibility of the project.

Procurement of the main packages will begin in Q3 2018, with the BCC expecting a transaction adviser appointed and the project Data room established in Q2 2018.

BCC expects construction and design to commence in 2019 with the project completed by 2023.
