$44 Million Train Station Carpark Upgrade – Springfield Central, Ipswich

The Queensland State Government has announced that construction will begin for the car parking upgrade at the Springfield Central station.

The first shovel was placed in the ground by Charis Mullen, Member for Jordan, with the project able to increase the number of car parks to 1,100.

“It’s full steam ahead for better transport and more jobs in Springfield Central, which is a key part of Queensland’s plan for economic recovery”.

“Springfield families have always supported public transport. They were a big factor in why the south east had two record years of patronage before COVID-19 hit”.

“We’ve delivered more train services and more connecting buses than ever before; now we’re building more parks as our community’s population triples in the next decade”, Ms Mullen said.

Mark Bailey, Transport and Main Roads Minister outlined that ADCO Constructions has been contracted to deliver the new multi-storey facility located at the corner of the Centenary Highway off-ramp and Springfield Greenbank Arterial Road.

“The ongoing health response to COVID-19 means the Palaszczuk Government has been able to get on with a job-creating, congestion-busting $23 billion road and transport program as part of Queensland’s plan for economic recovery,”

“The way we travel has changed over the past few months, but not the community’s desire for more jobs. This new multi-storey parking facility will not just build more parks, but close to 50 jobs in construction and design.”

“As families and commuters head back onto public transport, it’ll mean they’ll have more ways to catch the train and get to school, work or the shops.” Mr Bailey said.

New local bus services including the Spring Mountain 533, 527 and 528 service were introduced earlier in 2020.

The project is expected to be complete early 2022.
