Carina Bus Depot Refurbishment

Prior to the 2016 Council Election, I committed to refurbishing the Carina Bus Depot on Creek Rd, Carina.

The Carina Bus Depot is at the heart of our community, but as one of Council’s oldest bus depots, it’s become a tired eyesore on the local landscape.

I’m pleased to advise construction has now begun to upgrade the facilities. We will deliver a bus depot that residents can be proud of.

The works will include landscaping, paintwork, panneling, signage and fencing, as well as improving accessiblity in and out of the administration building.

New LED lighting will also allow the Carina Bus Depot to partake in planned ‘Light Up Brisbane’ initiatives, whereby Council assets are lit up to promote or raise awareness for events or campaigns.

Works are expected to be completed by mid-2018, weather permitting.

Construction will take place between 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Community impact

Council is committed to keeping the community informed of construction in their area and will provide advance notification of any required night works during the construction period.

There will be no impacts to the road network or bus operations during these works.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community and I thank the local community for their patience as we work to upgrade this facility.
