Northern Car Park

Development of northern car park

The development of a car park is a key priority for Herston Quarter in order to meet the current demand and future car parking needs for staff, patients and visitors.

The Northern Car Park is planned to deliver approximately 1,150 car park spaces, and will be located on the north side of Herston Quarter, nestled in the cliff between Research Road and Back Road. The topography of the site allows for optimal design and traffic flow, with entry and exit points for the car park from the lower level on Research Road and the top level off Back Road.

Initial works on site will focus on isolating and relocating existing services from the site. We continue to refine plans to begin services diversion works and will keep you informed of timing as plans progress.

Please note that the existing car park on Bramston Terrace will remain operational until the new car park is operational.

Construction timeline

Impacts of service relocation works

Service relocation works involve disconnecting, moving and commissioning a range of services, including water, electricity, communications, stormwater, chilled water, medical oxygen, security and access controls and potable water mains. These critical services will be relocated to ensure they are isolated and protected from any future works on the Northern Car Park.

We continue to refine plans to begin services diversion works and will keep you informed of timing as plans progress. Some of the key impacts will be:

  • Research Road will be partially closed between the intersection with Back Road and the driveway to the Herston Medical Research Facility
  • Back Road will be partially closed between the intersection of Research Road and driveway to the Herston Alcohol and Drugs Unit
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained from Bramston Terrace, along Back Road to the Centre for Clinical Nursing.
  • There will be limited vegetation removal required as part of these essential works.

Construction of the car park will then commence and take approximately 18 months to complete.
