Current status

Early Works – station access road and drainage

Construction of the new Pimpama station access road and associated drainage are being undertaken as an early works package. The works commenced in late 2021 and include a new signalised intersection at Bedford Road and the Old Pacific Highway, an access road into the station site, associated drainage works and connecting pedestrian and cycle pathways.

You can find out more about the early works program at the dedicated webpage.
 

Major construction – final design and construction

ADCO Constructions are progressing through final procurement stages to finalise the design and construction of Pimpama Station. Site establishment activities on the eastern side of the rail corridor have commenced in preparation for major construction in 2023.

You can find out more information on the site establishment activities here.

In response to strong community feedback, the project team are investigating options to include a pedestrian connection on the eastern side of the rail corridor in the final design and what additional funding would be required.
 

What’s next?

Early works along Bedford Road and the Old Pacific Highway, and site establishment activities on the eastern side of the rail corridor will continue in preparation for major construction of the station planned to commence in 2023.

Further studies are being undertaken including traffic management, hydrology, noise and environment assessments to further refine and finalise the design in preparation for construction.

The community will be kept updated as the station design is finalised and will be notified of the construction program and activities well in advance of works commencing on site.
