Brisbane bridge tolls to be waived during G20 Summit

Tolls on Brisbane's Go Between Bridge and Gateway Bridges will be temporarily lifted during the G20 Summit weekend.

The Queensland Government says tolls on the bridges will be lifted for all road users to recognise there will be some traffic disruptions due to the gathering of world leaders.

Transport minister Scott Emerson says the toll on the Go Between Bridge will be removed from Friday, November 14 to midnight Sunday on November 16.

"We are also funding free tolls on the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges (Gateway) on Saturday November 15 from 6am to midnight," he says.

"Making the Gateway Bridges toll free on the Saturday will provide a free river crossing for those travelling between the north and south of the city and help reduce the inconvenience for motorists."

The Federal Government is covering the cost of removing the toll from the Go Between Bridge, while the Queensland Government is picking up the bill for the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges. The total cost will be $523,000.

Premier Campbell Newman says the largest number of motorcade and vehicle movements associated with the G20 will occur on Saturday, November 15.
