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.
Major construction – final design and construction
ADCO Constructions have been awarded the contract to design and construct Pimpama Station. Site establishment and in-corridor activities are now underway with major construction commencing in early 2023.
You can find out more information on the construction activities here.
Benefits for Pimpama
Pimpama station will provide the local community with greater access to convenient rail services; expanding options for easy travel within the Gold Coast, as well as to Brisbane.
The new Pimpama station will include the following features:
2. Stage 2 – provision for approximately 150 car parks (380 total)
3. Stage 3 – provision for approximately 200 car parks (580 total)
4. Lighting and CCTV throughout carpark and station
5. Five accessible car parks
6. Through-lift on each platform
7. Accessible kiss ‘n’ ride bays
8. Accessible taxi bays
10. Undercover lock-up enclosure for 40 bicycles
11. Planned connections to local pedestrian and cycle paths
12. Existing pedestrian connection
13. Station building and ticketing
14. Stairs connecting entry level to overpass
15. Pedestrian overpass
16. Bioretention (storm water) basin
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.
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.
