First bus service announced for Greater Flagstone PDA
Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the new services are set to begin in late November and will support future growth within the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area (PDA).
“The Palaszczuk Government is committed to providing reliable and convenient public transport in Queensland’s fastest population-growth corridor,” Mr Dick said.
“The services will run between the Greater Flagstone PDA and Grand Plaza Shopping Centre, Browns Plains, giving locals more transport options when it comes to work and community services.
“Economic Development Queensland and the Department of Transport and Main Roads have worked together to deliver public transport service to Greater Flagstone.
“Our $19.6 million funding agreement over 10 years will see TransLink progressively introduce more bus services as demand increases.”
By 2066 it’s estimated the Greater Flagstone PDA will be home to approximately 120,000 residents.
Member for Jordan Charis Mullen said the Palaszczuk Government would continue monitoring growth in Flagstone to make sure services matched population.
“As the community grows, TransLink’s services will grow with it,” Ms Mullen said.
“This will ensure our community remains liveable, and attractive for people looking to move here.
“Residents will be better connected to employment, education, shops, and recreational spaces.
“It’s about improving lifestyle and opportunity, both locally and across the wider Logan region.”
