Thanks to your feedback and our collaboration with Redland City Council and State Government agencies, the design for the new station (PDF, 594KB) is now complete and ready for delivery.
Following the declaration of a Priority Development Area in June 2013, TransLink has continued to work closely with State Government agencies and Redland City Council to ensure the new station meets the wider vision for Redlands. The result of this collaboration is that the station will be upgraded in its current location.
The tender for construction has been awarded to Paynter Dixon. Construction of the new station commenced in late June 2016.
Construction of the new station commenced in late June 2016, with expected completion due in early 2017, weather and construction conditions permitting. During the construction period, you can expect:
- relocated temporary waiting facilities, including ticket office and public toilets
- changed traffic conditions
- changed station access and temporary bus stop
- temporary loss of some parking bays however, parking will still be available on site.
For further information on construction impacts, please contact 13QGOV (13 74 68) during business hours or email email@example.com. Alternately, please visit the Redland Bay Marina bus station project page.
Bus and ferry timetables during construction
From Monday 29 August, the Southern Moreton Bay Island (SMBI) ferry timetable will be adjusted to allow passengers to transfer more easily between ferry and bus services.
The bus stop will be temporarily closed and relocated during the upgrade, commencing Thursday 1 September.
We'll keep you informed of any additional service changes during construction of the new station.
How we have listened to you
In July 2012, we invited you to comment on a draft design for the new station and help us finalise the design.
Some of the key comments you raised were:
- include more windows within the enclosed waiting area to ensure passengers can maintain a view of arriving buses, the kiss 'n' ride and the car park
- increase the number of kiss 'n' ride bays
- ensure the bus shelter roof design provides adequate shelter for passengers
- extend the shelter for bus platforms across to the kiss 'n' ride and emergency bay
- improve bus and vehicle access to the bus station and within the car park.
We have considered all feedback and have addressed your concerns where possible.
On Thursday 10 March and Saturday 12 March 2016, we held face-to-face information sessions at the Redland Bay Marina bus station to inform the community that construction is proceeding and to present the final bus station design.
These were popular sessions where we received valuable feedback about our design.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
