RANBURY ASSISTS TMR DELIVER BUS INFRASTRUCTURE TO FACILITATE IMPROVED PUBLIC TRANSPORT OUTCOMES
The TransLink (bus) Station Upgrade Program (TSUP) consists of infrastructure improvements including station upgrades, Park ‘n’ Ride projects and the growth in the busway network to assist in encouraging more people to use public transport.
Ranbury worked as part of Transport and Main Roads’ (TMR) integrated teams in delivering project outcomes for the internal client, TransLink. Ranbury provided project management and superintendent representative personnel to lead and/or assist in the delivery of a number of key projects, namely:
- North Lakes Bus Station
- Jindalee Park ‘n’ Ride
- Warrigal Road Greenlink
- Maroochydore Bus Station
Ranbury acted as the Superintendent’s Representative for the North Lakes Bus Station and the Jindalee Park ‘n’ Ride projects, which involved supervision of quality and site activities, as well as administration of the construction contracts.
Located on the corner of The Corso and Endeavour Boulevard within the North Lakes Town Centre, the (North Lakes) station has significantly improved public transport options in the area and enhanced accessibility to neighbouring suburbs. The works involved the construction of a bus interchange for up to 6 buses; drop-off and pick-up areas; improved access for pedestrians and cyclists; and landscaping, installation of security systems, lighting and sheltered seating.
The Jindalee Park ‘n’ Ride facility has provided residents of the Centenary suburbs with a central hub to park their cars and access public transport services. It is located at the corner of Sinnamon and Burrendah Roads and Kooringal Drive in Jindalee. The facility provides parking for approximately 70 cars, including spaces for motorcycles and disability parking bays; direct pedestrian links from the new Park ‘n’ Ride to bus stops near the facility; a new premium bus shelter on Burrendah Road; a safe parking area with security cameras and lighting; better access for walkers and cyclists (including bicycle storage); and landscaping.
Ranbury worked seamlessly as part of TMR’s integrated teams in delivering successful public transport project outcomes for TransLink.
Ranbury acted as the Project Manager for the planning, design and documentation of the Warrigal Road Greenlink project located at Eight Mile Plains, south of Brisbane. The scope of the project involves the extension of Warrigal Road to provide a priority link for buses from Warrigal Road to Logan Road, and also to provide new local access for residents located at the north eastern end of the site, including access to Logan Road.
The new Maroochydore bus station is located on Horton Parade near Cornmeal and Sunseeker Parade, replacing the existing station at Sunshine Plaza. The new bus station has created a transport hub for local commuters and whilst providing convenient access to Sunshine Plaza and other nearby shopping facilities. The project scope includes 6 bus bays (3 on either side of Horton Parade); comfortable waiting environment with sheltered seating, lighting and CCTV; a public transport information stand; secure bicycle storage; layover facilities with room for several buses and driver amenities, and bus priority traffic signals on Horton Parade for buses to enter and exit the facility easily, particularly in peak times.
