Our city skyline and airport are both receiving major works whilst Brisbane’s inner-city suburbs are also seeing major infrastructure projects receiving the go-ahead and edging closer to completion.  We have compiled a list of projects in and around our local area to update you on their status and what to expect in 2021.

West Ashgrove Village Precinct Project

Part of the Council’s ‘Village Precinct Projects’, the shopping centre along Waterworks Road in West Ashgrove is set to undergo a major renovation. An estimated $3 Million commitment to the project will see an upgrade to the surrounding footpaths, road crossings, greenery for visual appeal and improved seating areas with unique street furniture. The plan is in place to create a more vibrant neighbourhood and council received more than 80 suggestions from locals as to what they would like to see from the renovation. The final improvement proposal will be released in early 2021 with the project due to be finalised by the end of next year.

Victoria Park

Referred to as ‘Brisbane’s answer to Central Park’, the Victoria Park draft vision plan was released early 2020 with the final vision plan to be confirmed late this year. Brisbane’s largest park in 50 years, the 18-hole golf course will be transformed into 450 hectares of community green space that celebrates Brisbane’s heritage and natural environment. Features of the park will include waterholes for kayaking and swimming, skate park, tennis courts and tree house. Residents advised that they wanted more greenspaces and the highly-anticipated project is set to begin works in June 2021.
