Park Road, Milton Village Precinct Project
Brisbane City Council is working with the local community to revitalise the Park Road, Milton neighbourhood precinct located along Park Road between Coronation Drive and Milton Road, Milton. This is part of the Village Precinct Projects (VPP) program and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.
We are committing up to $540,000 to the improvement project, which aims to:
- enhance amenity, connections and safety for residents and visitors to the neighbourhood centre
- contribute to and encourage local economic growth
- increase the community’s sense of place and pride in this neighbourhood centre.
Community consultation and engagement
The local community was encouraged to become involved in the planning of the precinct improvements. In late November 2021, Council released an opportunities plan considering the existing site conditions. The plan identified improvement options for the precinct.
During late November – early December 2021, we invited your feedback on the opportunities plan via a project information kiosk and an online survey.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, your feedback has informed the centre’s final improvement plan.
Final improvement plan

Planning and construction (current stage)
Final improvement plan released and construction scheduled for early-to-mid 2023.
Mid to late 2023 – community event celebrating the upgraded precinct and seeking community feedback on the delivered improvements.
Construction timing and impacts
Construction is expected to begin in May 2023 and be completed mid-2023, weather and site conditions permitting.
Access into and through the precinct will be maintained at all times. Businesses will remain open to visitors throughout construction.
The majority of works will be undertaken at night when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of pedestrians, motorists and workers, and to minimise disruptions.
Construction activities will generally be carried out from Sunday to Thursday, between 7pm and 5am, with occasional Saturday works as required. Some day works may be required. Day works will be undertaken from Monday to Friday, from 7am to 5pm.
Properties in close proximity to the works may experience some construction noise, dust and vibration; however, every effort will be made to minimise the impacts on the local community. Especially noisy works, such as concrete saw cutting, which will be completed prior to 10pm where possible.
Council is committed to keeping residents and businesses informed of construction activities in their area and will provide advance notification of activities likely to cause disruption during the construction period.
