Yeerongpilly TOD

Slowly but surely the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is taking shape. The first consultations are now underway to transform the current Animal Research Institute site into a mixed-use Transit Oriented Development. If the Cross River Rail project goes ahead, the Yeerongpilly TOD would be just two train stops away from the CBD.

The site could support a “main street” like atmosphere with shops, restaurants, commercial and retail development.  Building heights are proposed to be varied, transitioning from high to low. This will hopefully allow a diversity of dwellings to be offered at every price level, not just the high-end.

Transport-wise, Yeerongpilly rail station is expected to be the main focus, although it is a bit of a walk. The bus services in the area really need to be upgraded to acceptable levels of frequency and directness as they provide access to Corinda and Indooroopilly;  The current Tennyson Rail line to Corinda and Indooroopilly only sees a handful of services per day.

Community feedback is being accepted now. For further detail on the concept plans, visit the Department of Infrastructure and Planning’s website here.
