FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

The State Government has announced that the Park ‘n’ Ride locations at the Northgate Train Station have been investigated for a range of options to increase parking for customers and 1 option stands out from the rest.

DTMR have narrowed down the selection to a preferred option of the four existing park ‘n’ ride sites considered for expansion. Currently in the planning phase, the project has a business case being developed on this preferred solution ahead of community consultation.

The upgrade announcement was made by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) at the start of the Community consultation is underway from 18 October to 18 November 2021.

The station popularity has grown with Brisbane northside residents recognising the station as a junction for the Shorncliffe and Caboolture lines, which most north bound trains pass through.

Currently there are 4 existing at-grade park ‘n’ ride facilities at Northgate station with more than 380 dedicated car parks.

Site A,B,C Options
The information provided outlines that the other three park ‘n’ ride sites on the western side of Northgate station (sites A, B and C) are considered to
be less desirable for the following reasons:
– sites are located in a low-medium density residential area
– two (B and C) are considerably smaller
– irregular in shape leading to higher construction costs
– Site A offers a large irregular shape and cause a complex, less efficient
design and higher construction costs.



In June 2019, Leanne Linard announced that the funding for the Northgate train station expansion of the park ‘n’ ride initiative was granted out of the 2019-2020 state budget.

“More than 100 park’n’ride spaces are also being added to Geebung and Virginia train stations. These station enhancements complement additional car spaces already delivered at Nudgee, Banyo and Nundah”.

“Our local community is a strong supporter and user of public transport. As State Member, I have always lobbied strongly for upgrades across our network to benefit our local community and I always will”.

“I thank Transport Minister Mark Bailey MP for listening to our community and I look forward to involving local residents in the planning for Northgate going forward,” Mrs Linard said.

Timeframe
– October 2021: Community consultation
– Late 2021: The business case will be finalised.
