New link road to open options for Springfield Central rail commuters
A MAJOR new road linking Angnsta Parkway to the Springfield Greenbank Arterial road will be built as part of council's partnership with the State Government to provide extra car parking spaces adjacent to the new Springfield Central train station.
Ipswich City Council Planning and Development chairman Paul Tully said the currently unnamed road was identified under the Ipswich planning scheme as a key piece of local transport infrastructure.
The new road will link Augusta Parkway to the Springfield Greenbank Arterial near the Springfield Anglican College.
"This is a rapidly developing part of Ipswich so it is essential the development of transport infrastructure keeps pace," Cr Tully said.
"When completed later this year Springfield Central Train Station will be very welcome for residents and opens up new options for commuters travelling between Springfield and Brisbane. Council is committed to ensuring that residents can make full use of this new train service.
"This road will open up access to more than 400 car parking spaces for use by commuters and ensure the usefulness of this station for the community. This road is part of development proposals contained in the forthcoming 2014 budget."
