To support new development and the operation of the future Redcliffe Train Station, the area needs new infrastructure which includes:
- The realignment of the Southern Main Drain
- Public open space areas
- New road connections and upgrades to the existing local road networks
- Capacity upgrades to the existing water, sewer and gas infrastructure
- Underground power
The draft Activity Centre Plan outlines priorities for the delivery of infrastructure in the precinct.
- Landscape public open space around Redcliffe Train Station;
- Construct a roundabout at the intersection of Second Street and Boulder Avenue at the entrance of the Park and Ride facility supporting Redcliffe Train Station;
- Deliver road connections surrounding Redcliffe Train Station, including a connection between Central Avenue and Bulong Avenue and Bulong Avenue and Second Street.
- Realign and transform the Southern Main Drain into an urban stream;
- Realign services and utilities in the former Brearley Avenue road reserve;
- Deliver and landscape the central area of public open space within the former Brearley Avenue road reserve;
- Deliver a road connection between Kanowna Avenue and Boulder Street.
- Upgrade local roads and undertake streetscape improvements;
- Deliver underground power;
- Upgrade existing water, sewer and gas infrastructure.
- Investigate and deliver additional areas of public open space
The Southern Main Drain is an open-channel regional drain which carries water from Kalamunda to the Swan River. It sits next to Brearley Avenue between Kanowna Avenue East and Central Avenue.
It is proposed that this drain be realigned and reconfigured into a living urban stream, as part of a central area of public open space.
The draft Activity Centre Plan proposes that the former Brearley Avenue road reserve will be transformed into a central open space corridor spanning from Great Eastern Highway to the Redcliffe Train Station.
A total of 3.6623 hectares of public open space is proposed by the plan, which is an increase of 484m² and represents 8.72% of developable land within the precinct.
