The new Brisbane cross tunnel opened a few weeks ago. It goes from Woolloongabba on the south side to Herston on the north side, under the city and the Brisbane River. Drivers avoid 24 traffic lights and save a lot of time. However there have been mixed reports with stories of huge delays when a vehicle breaks down in the tunnel. There are also complaints about the air quality in the tunnel.

The tunnel is named after long serving lord mayor Clem Jones OA, who died in 2007. It is a toll road and it costs at the moment $2.95 until the 9th May, when the toll will rise to $4.28 for a car.
