Standard buses will still use it, however, there is a general (unofficial) consensus that there will be a complete network review meaning that most routes will more than likely be truncated at a major interchange outside the CBD.

Yes, they will. Suburban and BUZ routes will use the busway in accordance with Metro buses, but they will split up when they enter Cultural Centre. However, the Metro does see the scrapping of routes 111,160 and 66.

Is the intention that the Metro will tie all three together, so that all passengers travel via U.Q. Lakes University? If so, that's a significant dogleg for city-bound or cross-town passengers, but then, there are plenty of other services they could take.

No, there are two lines:
1- Eight Mile Plains-> City (Roma St)
2- RBWH Station to UQ Lakes

I note some expressions of interest are out re the "metro" buses, but all overseas manufacturers, which is disappointing. I'm sure Volgren and Custom at least are quite capable of producing a good double artic.

But what's happening with the proposed electrification? I doubt they could run it entirely on batteries without considerable downtime. I note that Prague is introducing a very similar sort of service (but on normal roads) to its airport, using double artics running on batteries but recharging on the move from overhead wires for about 1/3 of the route.
