We're funding the construction of a new multi-storey park ‘n’ ride facility, being delivered in conjunction with the Queensland Government’s new State Netball Centre, at Mains and Kessels Roads, Nathan.

This upgrade will ultimately provide 680 car parks, making it one of Queensland’s largest park ‘n' ride facilities.

Construction of the park ‘n’ ride facility began in April 2017 and is due to be completed by late 2018, weather and construction conditions permitting.

New features include:

  • upgraded drainage and lighting 
  • increase in available carparks
  • closer proximity to the Mains Road bus stop.

The final stage of construction including the new multi-level carpark is due to be completed in late 2018, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Parking will continue to incrementally increase during this time, however we still recommend making alternative travel arrangements until works are complete.

We will continue to update you throughout the lifespan of the project.
