Jindalee Village Precinct Project
Brisbane City Council has worked with the local community to plan the improvement proposal to refresh the neighbourhood shopping precinct on Curragundi Road, Jindalee as part of the Village Precinct Projects program.
We're committing $450,000 to the improvement project which aims to:
- enhance the amenity, connectivity and safety for locals and residents
- contribute to and encourage local economic development and
- the community's sense of place at this neighbourhood centre.
This is part of Council’s commitment to creating a city of neighbourhoods, a key principle of the recently released Brisbane’s Future Blueprint, with vibrant suburban centres for our local communities.
Community consultation and engagement
The local community was encouraged to become involved in the planning for the revitalisation proposal by providing feedback during a three-week consultation period in November 2018.

- Final improvement proposal – Jindalee Village Precinct Project (Word - 725kb).
Council received more than 130 responses during the three-week survey period, as well as talking to more than 20 people at the onsite information kiosk on Saturday 17 November 2018. This feedback assisted Council in understanding what the community thinks is important in their neighbourhood and informed the revitalisation plan for your Jindalee local neighbourhood shopping precinct.
What happens next?
|Precinct improvement proposal||An improvement proposal has been prepared in response to the community's feedback and is on display in the Jindalee neighbourhood shopping precinct, Jamboree Ward Office and Mt Ommaney Library.|
|Construction||Construction began in mid-January and will be completed in April 2019. Council consulted with each business in the neighbourhood centre to ensure minimal disruption occurs during construction.|
|Activation event||To celebrate the completion of the project, local residents and business are invited to attend the Curragundi Laneway Festival on 4 May 2019 from 3-9pm. Get involved with the festivities which will include live music, kids activities, dancing, street performers, free native plants and an array of delicious street food.|
Expected improvements include:
- footpath upgrades to improve accessibility, maintenance and visual amenity
- improving pedestrian crossing safety by realigning existing pedestrian crossings, adding cautionary tactile paving to existing kerb ramps where possible and reconstructing existing ramps to improve accessibility
- tree planting to improve visual and physical amenity while providing shade
- groundcover plantings to new and existing garden beds
- standard street furniture and unique seating.
Construction timing and impacts
- Construction started in mid-January 2019 and is planned to be complete in April 2019, weather and site conditions permitting.
- Construction will primarily take place between 7am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
- Access to every shop will be maintained during business hours during the construction period.
- A number of the on-street car parks on Curragundi Road will be temporarily closed where construction occurs.
- Properties near the work may experience some construction noise, dust and vibration, however, every effort will be made to minimise the impacts on the local community.
- Due to workplace health and safety requirements, reversing beepers cannot be switched off.
Council is committed to minimising the impact of the works on the community as much as possible. We would like to thank local residents in advance for their patience and understanding during these works.
