About the project

Council identified the need to increase the availability of formal parking along Lavarack Avenue, Eagle Farm.

The Lavarack Avenue parking formalisation project involved constructing a section of formalised parking spaces along the centre median, east of the intersection of French Street, creating 40 spaces for cars and six spaces for B-double trucks.

To further improve safety for those parking and driving through this area, the project involved the installation of new energy-efficient street lighting on the existing power poles along the centre median.

This project was a continuation of the works undertaken in 2016, when Council constructed 19 car parks along the centre median of Lavarack Avenue, west of French Street.

The works completed included:

  • demolition of the existing centre median
  • installation of new centre median
  • pavement works
  • line marking
  • installation of new street lighting on existing power poles
  • turfing and landscaping.

Council is considering other sections of Lavarack Avenue and in Eagle Farm to construct similar formalised parking areas along the centre median, subject to prioritisation and future budget allocation.

Project benefits

The project has:

  • increased in the availability of safe and legal parking
  • improved visibility for road users
  • improved the streetscape.
