ADG were able to add significant value in their role as the lead consultant on this multidisciplinary project.

Burpengary Plaza Bus Infrastructure

CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL / Government

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

ADG were responsible for the early identification, for the client, that all work under the commission meets the requirements as stated in Table 5.3.4.1 of the Brisbane City Plan 2014 (or relevant council equivalent) and is therefore exempt development and will not be subject to development or building applications or approvals with the relevant council or concurrent agencies.

ADG identified that there was a Development Application on the Burpengary Plaza site and were successful in making Translink a referral agency as part of the process to ensure that all private development/state infrastructure related works are coordinated accordingly.

ADG are now working closely with MBRC on behalf of Translink to meet MBRC imposed conditions. ADG proactively requested as much information as MBRC could provide for the project extents to avoid reinventing the wheel which enabled ADG to develop the design enough to understand whether or not it is feasible to progress the design to the next phase. This will allow Translink to make an informed decision on the right time to outlay valuable funding on further investigation i.e. Geotech, survey and PUP or to allocate it to other competing projects.

ADG were able to position the proposed new roundabout to eliminate property impacts and land take on the western side of North Shore Drive and restrict land take to a strip of land previously dedicated by MBRC as a reciprocal access rights easement on the eastern side of North Shore Drive.
ADG were also identify a suitable position for an interim on road bus bay and a “suburban” shelter on the southern side of Station Road which restricted the required amount of auxiliary works to removal and reinstatement of line marking only.

ADG were able to meet all of the conditions imposed by MBRC.
