Queensland Motorways is a proud partner of the Smart Transport Research Centre which was launched in March 2011.
The centre is the first of its kind in the world, combining academic expertise from leading Australian universities with private and government sector innovation, resources and experience.
Queensland Motorways CEO Brendan Bourke said the Centre's research and development ultimately would bring significant benefits to road users.
"As owner and operator of the Gateway and Logan motorways, where we see more than 200,000 trips every day, we are excited to be working with industry and government towards developing smart transport solutions for the greater Brisbane area," he said.
Mr Bourke said while building new road infrastructure, such as the Gateway Upgrade Project, was necessary to increase capacity for a growing population, there were other options to improve the traveller experience.
"Queensland Motorways has already implemented free-flow tolling and Intelligent Transport Systems on its road network," he said.
"These initiatives have delivered substantial travel time savings, a safer road environment and better communication that enables motorists to make informed travel decisions.
"The next step is for us to work as an industry to better understand the broader picture across all roads and transportation networks, and work together to deliver excellence in smart transport solutions that benefit our customers."
