A new trial bus service is giving Queensland’s largest urban renewal project Northshore Hamilton better public transport connections to Brisbane.

TransLink 304 route operates between the Northshore Hamilton City Cat terminus and Doomben rail station, servicing developments including Hamilton Reach and Portside Wharf.

Head of TransLink Matthew Longland said the new route provided 100 weekly services with buses every 30 minutes during peak hours and every 60 minutes off-peak.

“The service is timetabled to connect to the train at Doomben station and started operating on 26 June 2017,” Mr Longland said.

It will run along McArthur Avenue to provide maximum access for users, and link to key destinations like the Northshore Riverside Park and the Brisbane Technology Park.

The Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area (PDA) is the largest waterfront urban renewal project in Queensland.

Over the next 30 years the 304 hectare Northshore Hamilton precinct will transform from an industrial area into an exciting urban waterfront community for residents, workers and visitors.

“The relocation of the Eat Street Northshore has already increased visitor numbers and provides a taste of things to come for the PDA,” Mr Longland said.

“This project will provide much needed public transport options to the residents and employees in Northshore Hamilton.”

The trial will monitor passenger demand over 12 months to determine if the service will continue.
