Construction of the Victoria Point Central bus station along Cleveland-Redland Bay Road has started and is expected to be completed in late 2019, construction and weather conditions permitting.
The Victoria Point Central bus station will be a split station along Cleveland-Redland Bay Road, between existing signalised pedestrian crossings at Bunker Road and the TownCentre Victoria Point entrance, to allow safe pedestrian access between platforms.
The new station will cater for increased bus capacity and provide improved network efficiency and driver facilities.
Services will continue to run as normal at the existing bus station on Bunker Road until the new facility is completed. Once the new facility is in operation there will be changes to timetables.
We will let you know of the changes to bus services closer to the opening of the station.
Key benefits and features
The new bus station will provide better public transport for Victoria Point, now and into the future. With a new facility, we will be able to deliver:
- time savings of up to six minutes per trip for most bus routes, given services would no longer need to divert along Bunker Road
- more reliable connections at Cleveland train station, Victoria Point Jetty and Redland Bay Marina on routes 250, 270, 274, 279, 280 and 282, in response to community concerns about these locations
- flexibility to improve the network in this area through additional services
- an improved customer environment with disability access
- centralised access to the business district, supporting local economic and community development
- ability to cater for the demand that future growth will bring.
A split station is proposed to be constructed with Platform 1 on one side of Cleveland-Redland Bay Road and Platform 2 on the opposite. You will be able to access each platform via the existing pedestrian crossings at Bunker Road or the shopping centre access roads. It should also be noted that the bus stops on Bunker Road are still likely to be serviced by a local bus service.
The proposed station facilities will include:
- room for six buses over two platforms
- sheltered bus platforms and waiting area
- improved lighting and security cameras with 24-hour video recording
- bicycle storage facilities
- bus driver facilities.
Construction and timing impacts
Construction started in late-November 2018 and is expected to be completed in late 2019, construction and weather conditions permitting. Construction hours will be between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Some intermittent night and weekend work may also be required.
- Throughout construction, local residents and businesses may experience temporary impacts including noise, vibration and dust associated with the use of machinery in the worksite.
- Pedestrians and cyclists should expect changed conditions, including detours, intermittent footpath closures and other traffic control measures.
- Motorists should expect changed conditions, including speed restrictions and partial lane closures throughout the work site.
