Helensvale Rail Station Bus Interchange

About the project

Pensar was engaged to construct the redevelopment of the Helensvale Bus Interchange and Carpark Configuration Project for Queensland Rail on behalf of Translink. This important piece of infrastructure was critical to the transport requirements for the Commonwealth Games during April 2018.  The two stage project involved the Stage 1 completion of the new bus interchange structure and pavement works along with temporary bus terminal for use during the Commonwealth Games. Stage 2 involved the removal of the temporary bus terminal, reconfiguration of the car park and finalisation of the structures and building upon completion of the games.
