Redcliffe Community Zone
The construction of the 500-bay car park at Redcliffe Station has been completed for now, with final touches such as line markings and landscaping to be done closer to the station’s opening. Work to date has included fence installation, building a new access point at Central Avenue, preparing the foundation and installing a motorcycle shelter.
Construction of the new roundabout at Second Street and Boulder Avenue, facilitating an additional access road into the car park, started following the Easter break. In June stage two commenced, requiring intermittent closure of a section of the north-east bound lane on Second Street. Temporary traffic lights will be in place to control traffic and speed limits will remain at 40kmh.

Redcliffe Station has undergone quite a transformation in recent months. Steel structures for three of four above-ground rooms have been installed, with the fourth not far behind. These rooms will accommodate staff areas and operational equipment, as well as a kiosk and public toilets. More steel, this time for the roof structure, has arrived on site and assembly has commenced. The first section of the station roof structure is already visible from the surrounding area.
The underground platform is complete and the first staircase, connecting ground and platform levels, has been installed. It spans a height of almost 10 metres.
Sealing rings for the four tunnel openings (two at either end of the station) are also in progress at this site, as is waterproofing of a section of the ground slab.
