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 and light poles.
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 have been installed for above-ground rooms, which will accommodate staff areas and operational equipment, as well as a kiosk and public toilets.
Roof works are progressing well, with 75 per cent of the frame standing and the first glazing for skylights scheduled to be installed shortly. The sheeting on top of the steel frame is expected to be in place by the end of November.
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, as is waterproofing of a section of the ground slab.
