Queen Street Mall safety improvements
Brisbane City Council is installing public safety devices (bollards) and garden beds in place of the concrete blocks in the Queen Street Mall as a more permanent measure to help separate the roadway and pedestrians in the city centre.
|Address||Queen Street Mall, Brisbane City|
|Latest update||Installation early May 2020 to mid-2021.|
About the project
Council is installing public safety devices in key locations around the city to help separate the roadway and pedestrians in the city centre. These works started in the Queen Street Mall in May 2020 and will continue until mid-2021.
Construction will take place between 7pm and 5am, Monday to Thursday, with the noisiest works completed by 1am. Occasional Sunday works will be required.
These works will be undertaken at night when use of the Mall is lowest and most businesses are closed to ensure safety and to minimise disruptions as much as possible.
All future milestone dates subject to weather and construction conditions.

|July 2020||Early works were undertaken to relocate underground services at the George Street end of the Mall|

Council is committed to keeping the local community informed of construction activity in their area and will provide further advance notification of activities likely to cause disruption such as particularly noisy works or out-of-hours activities.
Council will provide further information to the community about other locations as information becomes available.
Impacts during construction
We apologise in advance for any disruption caused and thank you for your patience while we complete these important safety works.
Residents and businesses in close proximity to the works may experience the following:
- noise and some dust generated from the installation activities. Please be assured that Council will use environmental controls and make every effort to minimise disruptions during these works.
- some localised pedestrian restrictions, which will be managed by onsite traffic controllers. Access for authorised vehicles will also be maintained during the works.
Access will be maintained through the Queen Street Mall, to local businesses, public transport and events throughout construction. The construction schedule for installation of the devices will work around events in the Queen Street Mall to minimise impact to the community.
All suppliers supporting businesses and activities in the Queen Street Mall are encouraged to contact City Mall Management on 3403 8195 in the first instance.
