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.

It will also feature six accessible parking bays near the train station to improve access to public transport for customers with a disability, as well as access to a relocated kiss ‘n’ ride/taxi zone with the bus facility 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. 

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.
