Brisbane Metro depot: Council begins land acquisition process

The Brisbane Metro project is progressing, with Council selecting Rochdale as a preferred site to construct a depot for the new metro vehicles, reports brisbanedevelopment.com.

 

The ideal spot for the depot is adjacent to the Eight Mile Plains busway station, with Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announcing that Council has contacted several land owners regarding acquiring their land. 

 

Commencement for the proposed depot would commence in 2022-23, with the 2.5 hectare site set to accommodation 60 metro vehicles.

 

“Council is committed to providing residents with a world-class public transport service, which means more buses for the suburbs, fewer cars on the roads and more travel options for residents,” Mr Quirk said.

 

“Brisbane Metro is the right transport solution for Brisbane, it is affordable with a very high benefit cost ratio and now is the time to deliver it.

 

“Importantly the Brisbane Metro will improve our lifestyle and leisure opportunities by providing an average of a one-hour weekly travel time saving for metro commuters.

 

“Council is getting on with the job and has identified land required for the project’s depot at Rochedale that provides direct access to the Eight Mile Plains busway station where the Metro line begins.”

 

The Brisbane Metro is an estimated $944 million project that will link Eight Mile Plains to Roma Street, and Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital to University of Queensland Lakes, and all busway stations in between. The two new high-frequency/capacity lines will run over 21 kilometres.

 

The project is also in the process of acquiring a 1,600 square metre site from Queensland Rail at Grey Street.
