Queensland Minister for State Development, Cameron Dick has declared an expanded priority development area (PDA) surrounding the future Woolloongabba station.
The declaration supports the development of a station-to-stadium precinct, said Dick.
“The PDA precinct will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use place, linking commercial, residential and retail development with world-class public transport,” he said.
“The new PDA includes all land within the former Woolloongabba PDA as well as land east of Main Street, including the Gabba.
“The inclusion of the Gabba enables the delivery of a dedicated pedestrian connection from the new Cross River Rail station to the stadium, providing easy access on game days and for events,” said Dick.
The Woolloongabba station, part of the Cross River Rail project, is currently under construction, and site establishment works have begun this April.
The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority, the state government, and Brisbane City Council will prepare a development scheme for the site. Until the development scheme is drafted, an interim land use plan is in effect.
Minister for Cross River Rail Kate Jones said that the PDA would ensure the successful delivery of the Cross River Rail project.
“This about getting on with the job of building Queensland’s largest infrastructure project,” she said.
“Cross River Rail will create more than 7000 local jobs for workers. This is guaranteed employment and gives peace of mind to Queenslanders working on the project,” said Jones.
Other stations on the Cross River Rail project have also had PDAs declared. Roma Street and Albert Street have PDAs surrounding the sites, to encourage and stimulate development in the station precincts.
