Temporary route changes to accommodate construction work will begin on 21 November 2022. The bus stop at Mango Hill station will be temporarily closed until December 2022.

Meanwhile, a new bus stop will be located across the road on Meyers Circuit. The relocated bus stop will maintain its existing length to cater for four 12.5m-long buses, which will make it safer and more efficient for passenger drop offs.

Commuters who use Bus Routes 681, 682, and 687 are advised to use the alternative stops on Halpine Drive near Talara Way, which 250 metres away, and the Freshwater Creek Road near Brushwood court, which is around 400m away.

The upgrades at the Mango Hill park ‘n’ ride facilities will mean more parking for commuters, as the site is expected to provide up to 150 new parking spaces.

The project also includes lighting and CCTV cameras for the safety of customers and better visibility in the area.

Construction of Site 2 is for the informal parking area currently next to the station. A new parking facility will also be created on vacant land adjacent to this.

Once complete, the entire project will provide a total of 280 new free spaces and six accessible parking bays near the Mango Hill train station to improve access to public transport for customers with disabilities.

This project is jointly funded by the Queensland and Australian governments, with the Queensland Government allocating $6 million and the Australian Government, providing $4 million.

The expansion will add 280 extra car parking spaces to the existing 220 car parking spaces in the facility, providing a total of 500 parking spaces on two separate sites upon completion.

The current works are part of the $10-million upgrade of Mango Hill train station, which aims not just to add parking spaces to increase public transport access in the surrounding suburbs, but also to manage parking pressures at nearby stations and local streets.

Aside from the expansion of the facility, works include lighting and CCTV cameras for enhanced visibility and security, landscaping to provide visual amenities, and pedestrian paths to improve connectivity to and from the train station.

The relocated bus stop will maintain its existing length to cater for four 12.5m-long buses, which will make it safer and more efficient for passenger drop offs. 

Following site establishment works, the main construction works for the upgrade started in June 2022. 

Transport Minister Mark Bailey and Deputy Premier Steven Miles announced that the new facility would open to the public in mid-2023, weather and construction conditions permitting.

The project is jointly funded by the Queensland and Australian governments, with the Australian government investing $4 million through the Urban Congestion Fund and the QLD government, $6 million for the project.  

Mango Hill Park ‘N’ Ride Upgrade Scheduled To Commence Soon

Construction tenders are now being accepted for upgrades to the Mango Hill station park n’ ride. Work is expected to commence in mid-2022 and will take about 12 months to complete.



The new park n’ ride facility will provide about 280 new parking spaces which will double the capacity at the Mango Hill station which now has 220 existing car parking spaces. 

The project is part of a $160 million park n’ ride upgrade program by the State. The upgrade will also provide a relocated kiss n’ ride, taxi zone, and a bus facility which will allow for safer and more efficient passenger drop-offs. Accessible parking bays near the Mango Hill station will also increase.

Key features of the upgrade include:

  • Adding 280 extra parking spaces to the existing 220 parking spaces.
  • Lighting and CCTV cameras for enhanced visibility and security.
  • Landscaping to provide visual amenity.
  • Pedestrian paths to improve connectivity to and from the train station.
  • 6 accessible parking bays near the Mango Hill train station to improve access to public transport for customers with a disability.
  • Relocated kiss ‘n’ ride/taxi zone and bus facility to make it safer and more efficient for passenger drop-offs. 

Construction is slated to commence in mid-2022 and will take about 12 months to complete, weather and construction conditions permitting. The majority of the work will be undertaken between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays.

The $10-million project is jointly funded by the Australian ($4 million through its Urban Congestion Fund) and Queensland ($6 million) governments.

Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP confirmed that procurement of a construction contract for the upgrade project has commenced following the completion of the park n’ ride upgrade project design.

“Under the Urban Congestion Fund, we are delivering 185 packages of work nationwide. The total number of projects that are now completed or underway nationwide is 81. By the end of 2022, more than 80 per cent of all packages are expected to be completed or under construction” Minister Fletcher said, who also noted that this is part of a $110-billion infrastructure investment pipeline which is helping to drive Australia’s economic recovery.



Queensland Deputy Premier and Member for Murrumba Steven Miles said that the upgrade will also provide a relocated kiss n’ ride, taxi zone and bus facility which will allow for safer and more efficient passenger drop-offs. He added that the accessible parking bays near the Mango Hill station will also increase.

“This follows the successful opening of park ‘n’ ride spaces across the SEQ rail network at locations like Geebung, Carseldine and Virginia on Brisbane’s northside,” Mr Miles said.

“As more and more people choose to call Queensland home, it’s infrastructure like this that will make a real difference in the everyday lives of commuters on the northside,” he added.

Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said that 3,200 new park n’ ride spaces will be built over the next four years under the $160 million Upgrade Program which will add to the existing 32,600 plus spaces.

Plans Finalised for $10-Million Mango Hill Station Upgrades

After years of studies and deliberation, the plans for a $10-million park ’n’ ride upgrade of the busy Mango Hill Station, badly needed by commuters in the Redcliffe Peninsula Line, have been finalised.



This project will see an addition of 280 car parking spaces that will relieve the parking pressures and increase the efficiency of such a high-frequency transport network. 

Aside from the increase in parking spaces, the Meyer Circuit kiss ‘n’ ride and taxi zone will be replaced and relocated with a bus stop for approximately four buses. The facilities will also include lighting and CCTV for enhanced visibility and security, pedestrian paths to and from the station, additional disabled parking bays, and landscaping of the area.

In a joint statement, Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP said that the Commonwealth has committed $4 million for the upgrades under the Urban Congestion Fund, whilst the Queensland Government will provide $6 million. 


Highlights

  • Plans have been finalised for the Mango Hill Station upgrades with 280 additional car parking spaces.
  • The Meyer Circuit kiss ‘n’ ride and taxi zone will be replaced and relocated with a bus stop.
  • Final designs will be unveiled in early 2022 with construction set to start in the latter part of the year.

“The Mango Hill Station upgrade is just the latest example of us delivering on our commitment to progress critical infrastructure projects across the country under our record $110 billion 10-year infrastructure investment pipeline, which is helping to drive Australia’s world-leading economic recovery,” Mr Fletcher said.  

“When we opened the Redcliffe Peninsula line a few years ago we knew it would be popular but we were all shocked at just how quickly locals took to their new train line,” Deputy Queensland Premier and State Member for Murrumba Steven Miles said.  

“Here at Mango Hill Station the carpark gets full nearly everyday before 8, people are missing their trains or just driving into work. So we’re building a massive upgrade to the carpark, boosting the number of parks to 400. Soon you’ll be able to spend less time looking for a park and more time with your family.”

According to Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister, the Hon Mark Bailey MP, the Mango Hill upgrades will reduce traffic congestions as more people will be able to easily take the train or bus. The upgrades will also see through the creation of 20 direct jobs during the construction. 



Design details for the improved Mango Hill Station will be released in early 2022 with construction to follow in the latter part of the year. For more information about this project, visit the Transport and Main Roads official site
