About the project

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise that works to maintain the amenity of six skate facilities in the south of Brisbane will start from mid-2020.

Council is committed to ensuring Brisbane's skate facilities will continue to

  • cater for diverse riders - ranging from young children and beginners to professional riders 
  • be free for all to use.

Project details

Maintenance works will generally include:

  • application of new surface coatings
  • rectification of cracks and holes in concrete
  • replacement of metal joints and railings
  • replacement of eroded soil.

Impacts during construction

Works are expected to take about three weeks on average to complete at each park, weather and construction conditions permitting. During construction, the skate parks will be temporarily closed for safety purposes.

Construction works will take place between 6:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Friday. Council is committed to keeping the community informed about any disruptive works in their area and will provide advance notification of any out-of-hours activities.

A small laydown area will be established in and around each park for the works. Once complete, the area will be reinstated to its original condition.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to local communities during this work.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these works and appreciate your patience while the works are completed.
