$21m Park ‘n’ Ride Upgrade at Greenbank RSL Begins
The big upgrade of the Greenbank RSL park ‘n’ ride has begun with the construction of 600 new parks and the addition of extra bus stops.
Member for Logan Linus Power was happy to see the works commence.
“Locals told me they want better transport and roads. That’s why we’re investing in two new bus services, and investments in four-laning local state roads,” Mr Power said.
Mr Power said it was part of a larger transport investment strategy in the City of Logan, including delivering upgrades for Mount Lindesay Highway and a business case for a new passenger rail link between Salisbury and Beaudesert.
“This is a great opportunity for our area that will mean 840 parks in total, better accessibility to local businesses and it’s one I’m proud to deliver for my community.”
“The park ‘n’ ride will add to $100 million already committed to the Mount Lindesay Highway and the recent of a further $37.5 million to duplicate the section of highway between Stoney Camp Road to Chambers Flat Road, as part of a $400 million COVID-19 roads package.
“Building these new spaces will take pressure off Browns Plains Bus Station and give our local job market a boost at a time when we need it most.”
Browns Plains-based business Logan City Demolitions has been contracted to carry out the early works as Queensland continues its economic recovery from COVID-19.
Their crew will join more than 50 jobs up for grabs to build additional car parking spaces, a new service road linking Corporate Place and Blackwell Street, and a new bus stop with three bays.
