New temporary car park to open for commuters

A new temporary car park for commuters will be open near Springfield Central station from Monday 21 October.

The temporary car park is about a 500-metre walk from the station and has 300 spaces, 50 more than the existing car park.

Entry is off Eden Station Drive with CCTV security and lighting installed for commuter safety.

Existing parks will be closed to make way for heavy machinery building a 10,000-seat stadium for the Brisbane Lions.

The $70 million facility is being financially supported by Ipswich City Council, the Federal and State Governments, Springfield City Group and the AFL.

Member for Jordan Charis Mullen said it marked another milestone in Springfield Central’s transformation.

The temporary parks will remain in place as the AFL stadium is built and during construction of a $44.5 million multi-storey park ‘n’ ride facility next year.

Some additional commuter car parking will remain along Springfield Greenbank Arterial and Southern Cross Circuit.

Commuters have been reminded to follow parking regulations in the area. Should illegal parking occur, enforcement action may be taken.

“We understand that all of the construction activity across the precinct will be inconvenient for commuters for a period of time and we really appreciate everyone’s patience as we develop this new and improved station/stadium precinct,” Ms Mullen said.
