600 parking spaces and a new bus platform are now open at the Greenbank RSL park ‘n’ ride, delivered as part of a $21 million upgrade at Hillcrest.

The project was delivered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads and fully funded by the Queensland Government.

Member for Algester Leeanne Enoch said the upgrade would ease congestion and give locals better public transport options.

“Catching the bus from Greenbank RSL has never been easier,” Ms Enoch said.

“The upgrade has seen the delivery of 600 new parking spaces, including 14 new accessible spaces, a new bus platform, kiss ‘n’ ride, bike parking, driver amenities and an additional bus layover.

“We’ve also improved security at the station, with the installation of new CCTV and better lighting.

The station would also link from Corporate Place to Blackwell Street to better connect with local businesses.

City Infrastructure Chair Councillor Teresa Lane said the new bus stops would increase transport options and will encourage more people to consider not driving their cars.

“That can only be a good thing, and I thank the Queensland Government for taking the initiative with this project,” she said.

Division 7 Councillor Tim Frazer said locals were urged to use the new park ‘n’ ride.

“Whether you’re going to work in the City of Logan or in one of our neighbouring cities I encourage everyone to consider taking the bus to ease congestion on our roads while also helping to save the environment,” he said.

Member for Logan Linus Power said the upgrade demonstrated the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to deliver accessible public transport to growing regions.

“The improvements to the Greenbank RSL park ‘n’ ride will allow commuters to easily access bus services in and out of the rapidly expanding area, getting cars off the road and commuters home sooner,” Mr Power said.

“Park ‘n’ ride facilities are an important part of the transport network and the Queensland Government continues to prioritise the delivery of improved transport infrastructure in these high-growth areas.

“We are working hard to prioritise these investments to communities, like Logan, who need it most.”

Ms Enoch said more than 3200 new park ‘n’ ride spaces would be delivered over the next four years as part of the $160 million park ‘n’ ride upgrade program.

”We are delivering more public transport infrastructure so Queenslanders can easily access jobs and education,” she said.

“This project is part of the Palaszczuk Government’s record $27.5 billion commitment to roads and transport infrastructure across Queensland, supporting 24,000 jobs as we deliver Queensland’s plan for economic recovery.

“Throughout the project, the Greenbank RSL park ‘n’ ride upgrade supported more than 50 jobs at a time when maintaining jobs has never been more critical.”

Mr Power said changes to bus stopping patterns at the station began on Monday 20 September, 2021.

“With the new bus stop platform and layover bays built, the old Greenbank RSL stops have now closed,” he said.

“Customers can continue to catch routes 140, P141, P142, 535, 541 and P546 from the new stop, which is located about 110 meters further along Corporate Place.”
