ABOUT THE CLEM7
Brisbane’s Clem Jones Tunnel (CLEM7) is a faster, safer, more reliable choice for significant time savings in cross-city travel.
The 6.8km tolled motorway links five major Brisbane roads, including the Pacific Motorway, Ipswich Road, Lutwyche Road, Inner City Bypass and Shafston Avenue at Kangaroo Point.
The CLEM7 is operated by Queensland tollway company, RiverCity Motorway Group. Tolling is managed by FLOW Tolling, which ensures tolls are collected electronically through either a tag fitted inside motorists’ vehicles, or through number plate recognition technology.
The CLEM7 forms the first part of Brisbane’s new M7 motorway, to be completed in 2012 when the Airport Link tunnel opens. The M7 will provide a much-needed motorway link between Brisbane’s southern suburbs to the Airport and the fast-growing northern suburbs.
Proudly Honouring the Memory of Clem Jones
As Brisbane’s longest serving Lord Mayor, Clem Jones oversaw the city’s growth from a sleepy country town to a vibrant sub-tropical metropolis during his time in office from 1961 to 1975.
A great advocate of progress, Clem Jones was responsible for Brisbane’s first town plan and established much-needed infrastructure such as sewerage, water and sealed road networks. He built new roads and developed city gardens, sporting fields and swimming pools.
Clem Jones passed away in 2007, aged 89. In recognition of his enormous contribution to making Brisbane the great place it is today, it was fitting to name the city’s biggest-ever infrastructure project after him.
