Aspley Village Precinct Project
Brisbane City Council completed the $5.9 million streetscape improvement project on Gympie Road Aspley in 2020.
Council worked with the local community to revitalise the Gympie Road shopping centre, delivering an attractive, comfortable and connected centre for locals and visitors to use and enjoy.
This is part of the Village Precinct Projects program and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.
The local community was consulted and involved in the planning for the Gympie Road Aspley shopping centre from late 2018 by providing feedback via online surveys and by sharing ideas in person at on site information sessions.
Majority of those surveyed were passionate about improving the pedestrian experience, including increasing the amount of greenery, seating and amenity and improving pedestrian safety.
- a signalised pedestrian crossing upgrade on Gympie Road
- street trees for shade
- garden beds
- new streetscape furniture including stools, bins, bike racks and drinking fountains
- custom-designed seats
- upgraded footpaths for safety and accessibility
- artwork murals and creative footpath patterning and bus shelter panels
- Aspley precinct 'gateway signage' at the corner of Gayford Street and Albany Creek Road.
The creative placemaking elements delivered as part of the Gympie Road Aspley Village Precinct Project include seating with creative relief artwork, footpath patterning and bus shelter panels and mural on the traffic signal box by artist Bruce Reynolds. Other creative outcomes include an artwork mural as well as ‘gateway signage’.
The creative placemaking elements, reflecting the Aspley precinct celebrate the local character and strengthen the centre's identity.
