Aspley Shopping Precinct to Get a $5.9 Million Upgrade

As part of the Village Precinct Projects, Brisbane City Council has invested $5.9 million for the revitalisation of the Aspley shopping precinct along Gympie Road.

BCC has already released the draft opportunities plan for the shopping precinct and is now seeking feedback from the community.

Aspley Village Precinct Project

The multi-million streetscape improvement project aims to enhance the strip of shops on Gympie Road, from Robinson Road West and Albany Creek Road, to Windrest Avenue and Gayford Street, Aspley.

Upgrades to the precinct will include the following:

  • a signalised pedestrian crossing upgrade on Gympie Road, subject to final approval from the Queensland Government
  • footpath upgrades to improve accessibility, maintenance, and visual amenity
  • improving pedestrian crossing safety by realigning existing pedestrian crossings and adding cautionary tactile paving to existing kerb ramps where possible
  • tree planting to improve visual and physical amenity
  • groundcover plantings to new and existing garden beds to improve visual amenity
  • street furniture and unique seating to improve physical amenity and accessibility
  • public artwork to enrich local identity and express local culture.​

Community Consultation

Council will be working with the local community in improving the draft plans for the upgrades.

In fact, a community survey is currently available online where you can provide your feedback for the project. Council would like to hear your views on the Aspley neighbourhood centre as well as what it is about the local area that makes it important to you.

The feedback gathered from the community will significantly help in the creation of the improvement proposal.

Locals can send their feedback online until Friday, 28 September 2018.

Complete this short survey to provide your feedback.

Next Steps

After the community consultation, BCC will prepare an improvement proposal and will have it on display in the Aspley shopping precinct in early 2019.

Once the proposal is approved, construction will begin in early 2019 and be completed by late 2019. Council will consult with each business in the shopping centre to make sure that minimal disruption occurs during construction. Furthermore, the Council will maintain access to every shop in the shopping centre during business hours.

The local community will then be invited to attend an event that will celebrate the completion of the project.
