Route Numbering:

General Information:

State Route 22 is a 2 part route, truncated after numbering changes in the Brisbane area during the 1990s. The eastern section features a small unsigned section along O'Keefe St at Woolloongabba as well as an unsigned duplex with SR95 within the same suburb. 2
