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 the last month, with 75 per cent of the platform constructed, and 80 per cent of the first stage of the track slab within the station box now complete.
Demobilisation of the 30m-high electric tower crane located at ground level, previously used to lower tunnel segments into the station box, is underway.
With the crane out of the way, the crew at Redcliffe is about to start a new chapter of construction: the station roof. The first sections of steel, also including stairs and lift shafts, have already been delivered to site.
