Projects & initiatives

 

One of our main goals is to improve your public transport experience. To do this, we're upgrading the network, building new infrastructure and changing the way we operate.

Current projects

Victoria Point Central bus station

From Monday 25 July, you can have your say on the proposed upgrade and relocation of the Victoria Point Central bus station. The upgraded station is designed to increase capacity and provide improved network efficiency and facilities for passengers. Check out the features of the proposed Victoria Point Central bus station, let us know what you think at haveyoursay.translink.com.au!

Nambour bus network review

In early 2017, we'll be making changes to local bus services in Nambour to provide passengers with improved connectivity and greater reliability.

The bus network review proposes changes to five existing bus services and the introduction of two new bus services.

Sunshine Coast University Hospital service change

In early 2017, bus services will change on the Sunshine Coast with the opening of the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).

This service change proposes changes to three existing bus services and the introduction of one new bus service.

Mackay Bus Service Improvement Project

In late 2016, TransLink will launch in Mackay and bus services will change to provide customers with improved public transport.

Consultation on the proposed changes has now closed. We're working through the feedback received to finalise Mackay's new bus network.

The final network design will be announced in late August 2016.

Moreton Bay Rail Link

The Moreton Bay Rail Link (MBRL) is currently undergoing signalling system testing and will open once this system is deemed safe by Queensland Rail.

This once-in-a-generation project will transform the region, delivering a 14-kilometre dual-track passenger rail line between Lawnton and Kippa-Ring. There will be 6 new stations: Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Mango Hill East, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.

To provide an integrated network for the region, some service changes will occur on the local bus network.

SEQ Fare Review

The Queensland Government has announced its response to the SEQ Fare Review with new fare prices and simplified eight zone network for South East Queensland.

TransLink website refresh

We're upgrading the TransLink website to load quicker and be more versatile for users on the go.

Over the next few months, we will be improving the page design and changing how we group information on the website. Watch this (web)space!

Redland Bay Marina station

We're one step closer to delivering the new Redland Bay Marina bus station, with construction expected to commence in early June 2016. Thanks to your feedback and our collaboration with Redland City Council and State Government agencies, the design for the new station is now complete and ready for delivery.

Kawana station

The construction of the new Kawana bus station along Nicklin Way, outside Kawana Shoppingworld, will improve Kawana’s public transport facilities. The new station will improve public transport efficiency and accommodate for future growth.

National Disability Insurance Scheme transport components

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will transform the way Queenslanders with disability are supported and change the way disability services are funded and delivered.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will continue to deliver services and programs to all of our clients and members while the NDIS is introduced in Queensland.

The NDIS will result in changes to the administration of some of the department’s programs for people with disability who become NDIS participants.

Other bus and rail projects

Completed projects

Deception Bay station

The Deception Bay bus station was completed in December 2015.

The new station located on Bay Avenue replaces the stop located at Deception Bay Shopping Centre and provides passengers with improved facilities, such as shelter, a go card top up machine, lighting and security.

Victoria Point Jetty

The Victoria Point Jetty bus station upgrade was completed in October 2015. Customers transferring between Coochiemudlo Island ferries and TransLink services have access to a new fully-sheltered bus station with capacity for 2 buses. The upgrade includes additional seating and improved pedestrian access, safety features, lighting and 24-hour video surveillance. The station now meets TransLink's design standards for passenger comfort and operations.

Warrigal Road Green Link

The Warrigal Road Green Link was opened in July 2015 and is a bus-only link between Warrigal Road and Logan Road. It allows buses to bypass the Miles Platting Road, Padstow Road and Logan Road (MPPL) intersection to improve travel times and reliability of bus services. It has reduced traffic congestion for other motorists and road users.

Real-time info

Real-time information provides accurate predictions for the next services departing from your stop or station. It allows passengers to make public transport choices based on actual travel time, not just scheduled times which may vary depending on traffic or weather conditions.
