The first site for the $10 million Mango Hill Station park 'n' ride expansion is nearing completion.
Site one will provide about 150 new spaces and includes lighting and CCTV cameras for enhanced visibility and customer safety.
The Mango Hill Station park 'n' ride expansion, funded by the Queensland and Australian governments, will provide about 280 new free spaces, including accessible parking bays.
When site one is open to public transport customers, construction will move to upgrading site two - the informal parking area currently next to the station.
Customers should be aware that temporary route realignments will be in place from November 21 during construction activities.
Permanent realignments will be in place from December 19, once construction is complete, as a change to the bus stop location will be required.
“Through this project we’re more than doubling the capacity of the car park at Mango Hill which means more people can leave their car at the station and train to work,” Deputy Premier and State Member for Murrumba Steven Miles pictured top with Mark Bailey, said.
“Thank you to commuters who continue to be so patient while we deliver this important upgrade.
“Construction is expected to be complete mid-2023, weather and construction conditions permitting.”
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said: “Over the past year, park ‘n’ ride spaces have opened at Carseldine, Darra, Ebbw Vale, Geebung, Lawnton, Ormeau, Salisbury, Varsity Lakes and Virginia train station.
“More than 3200 new park ‘n’ ride spaces will be delivered over the next four years as part of the $160 million park ‘n’ ride upgrade program, which adds to the more than 32,600 spaces across the network.”
The Australian Government is contributing $4 million and Queensland Government $6 million to the Mango Hill Station park 'n 'ride project.
