Update - site establishment Lanham Street, Bowen Hills

From late July 2020, the UNITY Alliance will establish a temporary site facility on Lanham Street. The site will be used as a staging area for future rock excavation activities to widen the eastern side of the rail corridor between O’Connell Terrace and Campbell Street, Bowen Hills.


The site will be located within the existing Brisbane City Council depot with the main entry and exit point off Lanham Street for the duration of the project.

Details of work

Activities are scheduled to occur between 6:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday. The site compound may also be used intermittently during planned night works and track possessions.

As part of the site establishment, works will involve:

  • Placing temporary fencing, and erosion and sediment controls
  • Minor earthworks to construct level areas for the buildings and parking
  • Establishment of a laydown facility, site sheds and storage areas
  • Establishing access points
  • Setting up workforce parking and loading areas.

  • Access to and use of storage and laydown areas for construction materials
  • Operation of security lighting onsite
