  • Heavy vehicle restrictions now in place

    Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) has been aware, from discussions with residents and businesses in and around MacArthur Avenue, that the parking of trucks and heavy vehicles and associated trailers during the day and overnight is having a detrimental impact on the quality of the local environment.

    Following the end of Port of Brisbane activities on MacArthur Avenue in 2021, EDQ has been working with Brisbane City Council and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to manage the impacts of heavy vehicles in this area. The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is the statutory authority administering the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).

    We are pleased to announce that the NHVR has approved an application to restrict heavy vehicles from parking, marshalling, or queueing anywhere along MacArthur Avenue and Bincote Street within Northshore.

    Effective immediately, heavy vehicles will now only be allowed to travel along these roads.

    Enforcement of these restrictions will be the responsibility of Brisbane City Council.

    EDQ hopes these measures will improve the user experience for residents, occupiers, and visitors alike as we continue to transform Northshore into a sustainable sub-tropical lifestyle precinct.

  • Warehouses to be repurposed for carparking and new events

    Logan City Demolitions & Recycling (LCDR) have been awarded the contract to demolish four warehouses totaling over 10,000 m2 (H, J, M, N). The warehouses, once home to QUBE Ports (see image), have been vacant since early 2021 when QUBE Ports relocated to the Port of Brisbane.

    Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) sought independent structural advice on the stability and safety of repurposing these buildings. The findings showed that while five of the warehouses could be used in the future, the four identified were recommended for timely demolition.

    LCDR will mobilise to site in late August and start demolition in September. Works will continue through to November and include conversion of the footprint of warehouse M and N, on the corner of Bincote Street and MacArthur Avenue, into approximately 220 free new car parks to support our new event spaces in the Maritime Green Park. The footprint of warehouses H and J will provide new open hardstand to support pop-events.

    During the demolition there will be periods of footpath closures with signed changes to pedestrian movements along MacArthur Avenue. Updates will be provided as these dates are scheduled.

    LCDR have been in operation for over 40 years and are committed to environmentally focused demolition, striving to always achieve a recycling margin of at least 85% per site by reducing, reusing, or recycling materials.

    So committed to conserving resources and ecologically sustainable development, LCDR started its own recycling facility in Logan in February 2021. At the facility the team crush, re-purpose and re-use concrete products, bricks, roof tiles etc. and re-sell suitable material back to the market.

    LCDR are the first demolisher in South East Queensland to have their own private concrete facility. They plan to recycle their own construction and demolition waste, increasing their current 85% recycling rate to 95%.

  • Riverwalk now open and new works to increase pedestrian connectivity

    Works that had closed the pedestrian access to the Riverwalk behind the tennis courts in Dock D are now complete and the path is open.

    Residents may notice temporary fencing has been installed behind Dock D, Passenger Zone 4. This fencing is to accommodate the construction of a new pedestrian link through the existing garden bed (see plan below).


    The four-metre-wide pedestrian link will feature recycled timber posts and festoon lighting, and will provide quicker access to, and out of, the Passenger Zone 4 (pick-up/drop). The link will also provide easy access to The Shed and Eat Street entrances.

    Works on the pedestrian link are expected to be complete by late September 2022.

  • New roads at Northshore reach important completion milestone

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The transformation of Northshore from a former port area into a vibrant mixed-use urban precinct continues with the completion of an $18 million package of new roads, cycle tracks and footpaths.

    Starting in early July 2021, the industrial road form of the east end of MacArthur Avenue has been transformed into an urban boulevard framed with street trees, separated cycle tracks and wide footpaths, perfect for those keen to walk, run, cycle or scooter around the precinct.

    The construction of three new roads – Cedar, Barcham and Karakul – opens new land supply for development, attracting further private sector investment in the precinct in the lead up to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    Over 600 metres of cycle tracks and just under two kilometres of footpaths will encourage and support active movement across Northshore. Stormwater and utilities upgrades and subtropical urban landscaping at the eastern end of Northshore have also been delivered. The new roads also provide more on-street carparking in the area.

    This is a significant achievement under difficult times in the construction industry. The impacts of COVID on contractors and sub-contractors, rising construction costs and over seven weeks of rain delays in 2022 alone provided major challenges to the works program and budget.

    EDQ appreciates the patience exhibited by residents, occupiers and road users during these works.
