Construction update Yeerongpilly station works - June 2021

During June 2021, UNITY Alliance will continue construction activities in your local area.

 

Details of work

Installation of approximately 180 metres of cable service route (e.g. electricity and signalling) at Yeerongpilly station is scheduled to occur between Tuesday 15 June and Wednesday 30 June 2021, weather and construction conditions permitting. Due to the nature and location works, this activity will be performed when there is no rail traffic.

The following activities will occur outside the project’s normal working hours but are timed to take place within a planned track closure, as outlined below:

At Yeerongpilly station and intermittently between 10:00pm and 4:00am from Tuesday 15 June to Wednesday 30 June 2021, the following works will occur:

  • Excavation and trenching within the rail corridor adjacent to the rail line to prepare for cable service route installation

What to expect

During these works you may notice some intermittent disruptions such as:

  • Access in the rail corridor will be via the Queensland Rail gate on Wilkie Street, Yeerongpilly
  • Light vehicles, trucks and machinery including excavators, vacuum truck, trucks, small power tools, and mobile lighting towers to light work areas at night
  • Changes around your local area such as construction vehicles, traffic management signs and personnel
  • Some noise, vibration and dust associated with the use of heavy machinery and equipment.

Please note that Yeronga station is now closed as part of an accessibility rebuild. To support customers during the closure, the new 109 StationLink service is now running between Moorooka and Boggo Road stations.
Works are scheduled to minimise disruption; however your journey may be impacted from time to time. Plan your journey ahead at translink.com.au, or call 13 12 30.

We appreciate your patience during the construction period and will continue to update you as work progresses.
