The concept design stage is now complete.
Construction of the new station is subject to the necessary planning approvals.
Keep an eye out for notices in your local community newspaper and letterbox for project updates.
We will continue to update this page as the project progresses.
What is the Victoria Point Jetty station?
TransLink is improving public transport with construction of the new Victoria Point Jetty station.
The Victoria Point Jetty bus stop will be upgraded to a bus station with improved facilities for customers interchanging between Coochiemudlo Island ferries and TransLink services.
We've identified this upgrade as a priority and will ensure that the new facility meets TransLink's standards for comfort, design and operations.
What will the new station look like?
The concept design for the Victoria Point Jetty station includes:
- a new architecturally designed, fully-sheltered bus station with capacity for two buses
- an integrated waiting area for bus and ferry passengers with a large amount of additional seating
- improved pedestrian cess and safety features
- improved lighting and security cameras including 24-hour video recording
- a bus layover bay with drivers facilities located near the station
- landscaping to integrate with the local environment.
Why is it needed?
Redland City Council has recently finalised master plans for the foreshore at Victoria Point Jetty. As part of the master plan, it has been proposed to upgrade the jetty and associated bus stops to improve passenger comfort and accommodate future network growth.
The bus stop at Victoria Point Jetty is the start/end for a number of TransLink's services and is vital for connecting the residents of Coochiemudlo Island with the mainland. The existing bus stop facilities can be improved to meet TransLink's design standards for passenger comfort and operations.
What are the benefits?
The proposed Victoria Point Jetty station will:
- cater for current and future demand for services at Victoria Point Jetty and other nearby areas
- improve public transport for customers who regularly transfer between Coochiemudlo Island ferries and TransLink services
- improve passenger comfort with the introduction of new high-quality waiting facilities
- provide layover facilities for bus drivers and buses
- provide access for those with mobility impairments
- provide a more enjoyable waiting environment which encourages more people to use public transport.
How will this affect me?
To improve how the new station will operate, local bus services will be reviewed before the new station opens.
TransLink will inform customers in advance of any changes to bus services.
When we begin construction of the station, traffic management plans will be put into place to ensure traffic can operate throughout the construction period.
We will make every effort to minimise disruptions to the local community and bus passengers during construction, however some noise and dust should be expected.
We will inform nearby businesses and residents of any impacts as the project progresses.
