Mango Hill station park 'n' ride
Future expansion of the park 'n' ride facilities at Mango Hill station is being investigated.
Preliminary planning investigated options for expanding the Mango Hill station park ‘n’ ride, adding to the 220 existing parking spaces available to commuters. This planning identified the preferred site locations.
More detailed planning was undertaken during the business case phase of the project.
The project will deliver significant benefits for the local community by improving road safety, road congestion and parking pressures in the surrounding suburbs.
As part of the project, TMR has also reviewed the current operation of the kiss 'n' ride zone and bus stop facility at Mango Hill station. An assessment was undertaken to determine potential solutions to improve safety and driver behaviour when dropping passengers off at the station.
The park 'n' ride upgrade will include changes to the existing kiss 'n' ride facility by swapping the location of the existing bus stop with the kiss 'n' ride/taxi zone on Meyers Circuit. The relocated bus stop will maintain the existing length to cater for four 12.5m long buses. This solution will resolve the current issues associated with passenger drop offs.
When considering park 'n' rides, we look at the likely impact that a potential project would have on the transport network, economic development, the environment and future land use outcomes. The study included consultation with Moreton Bay Regional Council and Queensland Rail.

We have completed the business case for the project and detailed design for the Mango Hill station park 'n' ride upgrade will be underway in April 2021. Detailed design is expected to be completed by early 2022 with construction to follow, weather and construction scheduling permitting.
The new park 'n' ride facility includes 2 separate sites and will more than double park ‘n’ ride capacity at the station with approximately 280 additional parking spaces.
