The last of the three new stations to commence construction and fit-out of the above-ground structure, Redcliffe Station is quickly catching up.
Within the station box lifts, escalators and stairs are being fitted out, with the latter having glass balustrades, handrails and stair coverings installed.
Glazing of the skylights in the main roof has been finalised, with all 86 panels in place.
Outside the main building all steel structures for the bus canopies and walkways have been erected, with roof and ceiling cladding in its final stages.
Cladding for the ventilation fan structures at either end of the station building is being installed. Four enclosed rooms in total – one per tunnel per side – will be located within the station precinct.
A series of roadworks in and around the Redcliffe Station construction site is ongoing. Works include excavation, drainage installation (new and existing), sub-base laydown and compaction, asphalting, kerbing and paving. Final touches for this set of work will be completed as soon as there is a suitable break in the wet weather.
The changes to the road layout will result in a modified T-intersection at Central Avenue and Second Street, and a new road linking Central and Bulong avenues.
