    The temporary Queensland Electric Super Highway charging site located at 281 MacArthur Avenue, Northshore Brisbane, will be decommissioned from 25 May 2024 to facilitate the new Bluey’s World attraction and development outcomes envisaged under the Northshore Vision.

    The Queensland Government is supporting Yurika in locating and maintaining a new charging site within the Northshore Brisbane precinct. EV users will receive further information via the Chargefox app, available at www.chargefox.com. EDQ will update Northshore Brisbane residents and businesses on the opening of the new site through the Northshore Brisbane Have Your Say page.

    Construction has begun on The Wheelhouse, a new coworking space at Northshore Brisbane. First Nations business Bridgeman has been awarded the construction contract.

    The new warehouse-style building will provide a unique coworking space with 1,172 sqm of floor space split over two levels. It will include office spaces and hot desks for up to 170 workers, a grandstand seating communal area, a boardroom and two meeting rooms.

    The Wheelhouse’s dynamic environment is designed to be an innovation incubator for start-up and scale-up businesses. It offers flexible rental spaces and a vibrant atmosphere for creativity and collaboration.

    Bridgeman is a Queensland small-medium enterprise and a Supply Nation-certified Indigenous company. For The Wheelhouse, they will engage 100% with local contractors, manufacturers and supply chains. Bridgeman pre-qualifies capable and reliable First Nations businesses and actively encourages non-First Nations businesses to include First Nations businesses in their supply chains. They also support a range of social initiatives that provide training opportunities for First Nations people.

    Temporary fencing has been erected around the site adjacent to Eat Street, and work is now underway. The building’s construction is expected to be completed in October 2024, with The Wheelhouse operational in early 2025.

    Project vehicles and trucks will enter and exit the site via the specified driveway adjoining MacArthur Avenue. Some contractor parking may be outside the fenced area, but only during construction working hours.

    Working hours are Monday to Thursday, 6:30 am to 6:30 pm, Friday and Saturday, 6:30 am to 3 pm.

    The Northshore Roundtable presentation and display materials are available below. The display materials include outcomes from the technical assessments prepared for the program.


    About the Northshore Roads Program

    The Northshore Roads Program will be delivered over six years and, on completion, will provide:

    • Approximately 8 kilometres of new and upgraded roads to improve connections across the precinct and create neighbourhood streetscapes.
    • Improved access to Kingsford Smith Drive with a new road connection that provides signalised two-way access.
    • Extensive landscaping with approximately 1,000 new trees and thousands of shrubs planted across the precinct to create cooler streets and promote walking, cycling, and e-mobility.
    • Access for all with universal design as a key principle and wider than standard verges, increasing comfort and safety for everyone.
    • Improved flood immunity through raising roads and upgrading drainage.
    • Provision of approximately 300 on-street car parks and EV charging facilities.
    • Separated cyclist and pedestrian facilities on major new streets and reduced speed cycling streets are proposed for minor streets.

    The staging of the delivery of the roads is not confirmed, and this is indicative only. On completion of the road designs and once a contractor is appointed, the staging will be finalised, and an update will be sent to the community.

    Further updates will be provided when the design and staging for the Northshore Roads Program are finalised in Q1 2024.

Limited spaces are available at these in-person sessions and representatives will be selected from across the precinct—nominations close on Friday, 1 December.
    2. Book a time to meet the team: Speak directly with an EDQ Northshore representative and view the draft Roads Program design plans and outcomes of technical assessments. Sessions are available on Wednesday 29 November 2023 (5pm to 7pm) and Friday 1 December 2023 (8am to 10am).
    3. Complete an online survey and register for updates: Register for updates on the Have Your Say Northshore website and take a quick survey to voice your interests and priorities for the precinct. Survey closes 5pm, 18 December 2024.

    Roadworks: MacArthur Avenue Sewer Construction

    We wish to advise of some upcoming roadworks along MacArthur Avenue South, see attached plans.

    What will the infrastructure works involve?

    In order to cater for the future growth and development of the area it has become necessary to carry out roadworks to upgrade underground services. The works will involve;

    • Installation of new sewer pipeline and manholes along MacArthur Avenue.
    • Road demolition and reinstatement.
    • Verge demolition and reinstatement.

    When will these changes take effect?

    Low impact preliminary works will commence on Monday 27th March including tree removal, service location and site establishment.

    Construction works including changed traffic arrangements will commence on Tuesday 11th April. The works are scheduled for completion in July, weather dependant.

    What are the impacts of the works?

    Low Impact Preliminary Works (27th March):

    • Material and equipment deliveries within verge
    • Tree removal within verge (may include minor traffic management, no closures or detours)
    • Service location within verge
    • Site Establishment including demountable buildings, storage containers & fencing.

    Construction Works including Changes to Traffic Arrangement (11th April):

    • Changed traffic conditions - Eastbound traffic on MacArthur Avenue will be diverterted onto the Southern side of the road between the cross roads of Theodore St and Cedar Rd. Refer to attached plan for more details.
    • Vibration - excavation and compaction equipment may cause vibrations during working hours.
    • Noise - construction equipment and pumps may cause noise within the vicinity of the works during working hours.
    • Maximum Working Hours are Monday-Saturday 6.00am - 6.00pm. Prior notice will be provided should works need to occur outside of these hours.

    We would like to thank residents and road users in the area for their patience and understanding while this important project progresses.

  • Further Northshore waterfront to open to the public

    Share Further Northshore waterfront to open to the public on Facebook Share Further Northshore waterfront to open to the public on Twitter Share Further Northshore waterfront to open to the public on Linkedin Email Further Northshore waterfront to open to the public link

    In August 2022 we shared the news that four of the nine warehouses in the former Qube Ports precinct – Sheds H, J, M, N – would need to be removed due to structural and safely reasons. These works are well underway and will be finished by January 2023.

    We have since completed further investigations on Sheds F, G and W. Whilst we were hopeful these warehouses may be able to be kept and repurposed, it is apparent that these warehouses are also structurally unsound and cannot reasonably be retained or repurposed. Removal of these warehouses will therefore be complete by March 2023.

    Whilst we hadn’t expected to be removing Sheds F, G and W, the area created provides further opportunities for interim activation and greater public access to the waterfront, extending from Maritime Green. This supports our strategy of opening up and activating the waterfront ahead of permanent development.

    EDQ is working with urban designers to develop a masterplan to deliver new interim community and retail spaces for the area. Construction will be completed in stages starting in early 2023. It is expected the public will have access from late 2023 (pending weather conditions and material availability).

    We will provide details about new tenants and exciting activations along the waterfront from mid-2023.
