Paul Fletcher, Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, outlined that ths major infrastructure upgrade for North Brisbane would revamp the Ferny Grove rail station into a vibrant transport hub.

“The Morrison Government is getting on with delivering infrastructure projects that improve congestion and safety for commuters across Australia, making it easier for them to move around our capital cities and ensuring they get home quickly and safely”.

“This project brings to 66 the total number of Urban Congestion Fund projects around Australia that are completed or underway. A further 50 are expected to start construction this year”.

“This is just the latest example of us delivering on our commitment to progress critical infrastructure projects across the country under our record $110 billion, 10-year infrastructure investment pipeline, which is helping to drive Australia’s world-leading economic recovery”, Mr Fletcher said.

Mark Bailey, Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister outlined that securing hundreds more jobs in Brisbane was crucial to Queensland’s plan for economic recovery.

“As we focus on economic recovery from Queensland’s strong COVID-19 response, jointly-funded projects like this provide significant community benefits and local construction jobs”.

“Building better infrastructure for local communities and commuters is a focus of Queensland’s $27.5 billion pipeline of road and transport upgrades,” Minister Bailey said.



Julian Simmonds, Federal Member for Ryan outlined that the project would provide local commuters with safe and convenient access to more park ‘n’ ride facilities and an expanded shopping and entertainment precinct.

“The vision for the upgrade is to create a local ‘neighbourhood village’, which could feature food and beverage operators, a supermarket, cinema complex, childcare facility, medical practitioners and other service providers”.

“The upgrade is expected to support more than 285 jobs during the life of the project, which is just fantastic news,” Mr Simmonds said.

Peter Dutton, Federal Member for Dickson said that “There is a huge need for additional car parks at Ferny grove station and this project will provide the extra capacity the community needs.”

Mark Furner, State Member for Ferny Grove outlined the project would have a significant impact on the liveability of the region.

“I have backed this project for years because of the difference it will make to traffic on local roads and easier access to public transport for so many local people”.

“It is fantastic to see construction getting underway and the additional jobs involved in the project can only be good for the local economy,” Mr Furner said.



The Ferny Grove Central redevelopment is being lead by Honeycombes Property Group, with managing director Peter Honeycombe outlining the mix and calibre of the anchor tenants reflects the demand for quality retail in the area.

Designed by bureau proberts the new neighbourhood centre development incorporates a mix of centre activities, including a supermarket, restaurants, retail and recreational facilities contributing to an urban hub supported by the existing train station and bus interchange.

The elongated 3.5ha site is bounded by Lanita Road, Conavalla Street, Samford Road, Arbor Street and adjoins the Ferny Grove Station. The development is recognised as a Transit-orientated development (TOD) and is proposed over four (4) stages. The proposal seeks to provide an assortment of uses to support the local area and commuters of the existing ferny grove train station.

Peter Honeycombe, Managing Director of Honeycombes Property Group  outlined that Ferny Grove Central project had been seven years in the planning.

“It is immensely rewarding to finally get to the starting line and to start construction on the project today”.

“We see this as a very important urban renewal project for Ferny Grove and for Brisbane’s north-west and we’re passionate about projects that breathe new life into communities and that create a neighbourhood village atmosphere with all modern amenities that people want,” Mr Honeycombe said.
