Consultation has concluded

Council is planning to upgrade a section of footpath along Gympie Road in Strathpine over the next year. The aim of the project is to improve public safety and accessibility by:

  • Renewing footpaths
  • Replacing street furniture
  • Upgrading driveway surfacing
  • Refurbishing street number signage
  • Installing new pavements that promotes water filtration to the soil below, improving moisture retention for the iconic gateway Hoop Pine trees

The Hoop Pines (Araucaria Cunninghamii) located along the Gympie Road verges are iconic features of Strathpine. Council is committed to long term preservation of the Hoop Pines including protection during the construction period.

The footpaths remain safe for public use until construction work begins.

Council wants to ensure we minimise the impact of construction work on stakeholders particularly local businesses.

The full concept design for Gympie Road street-scaping will soon be finalised and shared on this project page as soon as it’s available.

Overview of project area

314 Gympie Road (opposite Learmonth Stre et) up to and including 400 Gympie Road (adjacent to Hungry Jacks) in Strathpine.

What can you expect during construction work?

Things will look slightly different along Gympie Road while construction work is underway in the first half of 2022. You may see:

  • Temporary footpaths providing alternative access to businesses
  • Temporary wayfinding signage
  • Construction site fencing and mesh
  • Construction machinery on site which may at times be noisy

Council’s aim is to undertake potentially high impact works outside of normal business hours where feasible.

What did early consultation involve?

Council undertook early consultation with landowners, business and community members directly affected by future construction work.

Commencing mid September 2021, Council communicated directly with businesses and landowners along Gympie Road to capture concerns and feedback.

All stakeholders had the opportunity to formally submit concerns and feedback through the survey link.

The responses you provided will help MBRC greatly in our efforts to:

  • Gather data and information about how future construction work will impact businesses and the community
  • Acknowledge community concerns and provide feedback on how your input influenced the final street-scape outcomes

Thanks for your feedback

Consultation on how future construction work will impact businesses and the community has now concluded.

Council is currently assessing all feedback and will soon share the final street-scape design, next steps and indicative project timeline.
