As part of the next stage of the Weinam Creek PDA redevelopment project, the Hamilton Street extension is due for construction commencement from August 2022. This next stage will bring vital road infrastructure improvements to Banana Street and create an extension of Hamilton Street to generate a new loop road for better public access to the Marina Ferry terminal at Redland Bay.
The rejuvenation of Weinam Creek is set to create more than 700 jobs and generate almost $30 million for the local economy, as well as deliver much-needed transport upgrades, community services and local jobs.
Redland Investment Corporation (RIC) on behalf of Council is delivering this catalyst project that will transform Redland Bay into a vibrant waterfront precinct with restaurants, cafes, a supermarket, more parking, new walkways and more open space.
RIC on behalf of Council negotiated a land swap agreement with the State Government that saw land at the ferry terminal transferred to Council. This will form part of the Weinam Creek PDA upgrade. In exchange, Council land on Meissner Street was transferred to Queensland Health to use as the site for the satellite hospital, to further support our island and southern Redlands Coast community.
Stage 1 of the project has already delivered more than 500 new parking spaces at Moores Road, new pathways, and a footbridge connecting to the Marina Ferry Terminal.
