Proposed Busway Extension

It is proposed to extend the South East Busway to connect Eight Mile Plains Station with Springwood Bus Station by a dedicated 4.8 kilometres (3.0 mi) busway. The extension is to coincide with an upgrade to the adjacent section of the Pacific Motorway. Delivery is to be staged depending on funding between 2011 and 2026. The preferred alignment for the busway extension corridor was determined in 2007 and a Concept Design Study was undertaken by the Queensland Government in 2009. [2] Currently busses must exit the busway and travel along the Pacific Motorway to reach Springwood Bus Station.

An additional station between Eight Mile Plains and Springwood is proposed at Rochedale Station.
