Virginia, QLD



The Queensland Government is investing in park ’n’ ride expansion projects across the south-east Queensland transport network to support continued growth and patronage. Expansion of the existing Park n Ride carpark at Virginia Train Station included an additional 51 new carparking spaces, a Bike Enclosure to accommodate 32 bikes, PUP decommissioning and diversions.

Department of Transport and Main Roads sought to engage a suitably qualified Principal Contractor to construct the Virginia Park n Ride Upgrade in accordance with the project scope and specifications.

What we delivered

As Principal Contractor, Bellwether Contractors undertook this project which was located adjacent and within a Queensland Rail Corridor. This project involved an uncompromisingly short contract duration requiring precise planning and execution of highly time sensitive activities and approval periods and was heavily impacted by multiple State Authorities and Stakeholders. Bellwether constructed the works which included:

  • PUP decommissioning and diversions
  • Pavements, kerbs and linemarking
  • Bike Enclose Facility
  • Lighting, CCTV, Electrical and Communications
  • Landscaping including footpaths
  • Fencing and signage
“This project has improved safety and access to public transport for all commuters.”

Key outcomes

The works have provided an additional 51 new carparking spaces which removes vehicles requiring to park on Wellington Street and has provided a new Bike Enclosure facility to encourage patrons to cycle to the train station. People with a disability will benefit from improved access and dedicated parking spaces. Other benefits include safer pedestrian access to the station and dedicated parks for motorcycles. Transport and Main Roads Director-General Neil Scales said the park ’n’ ride upgrade was a vital project for Virginia and northside commuters.
