Infrastructure upgrades

  • In December 2018, Brisbane based JMac Constructions was appointed as the park contractor. You can read more about it on the news feed.
  • In early 2018 construction commenced on the Wharf Close pop-up park at Northshore. The pop-up park is located at the old Eat Street site at the end of Wharf Close and will provide local residents, dogs and the community with an outdoor space while Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) is revitalised. The pop-up park will include a dog-off-leash area, a grass oval and some children's play equipment and is open between 5.00 am - 7.00 pm.
  • Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) will undergo a $10 million (approximately) transformation and expansion. The proposed design includes a sprawling lawn, impressive fig garden, a picnic area, a dog park and water play facilities. The village green in the centre of the park is designed to be large enough for a game of cricket or football and with facilities for open air, amphitheatre style entertainment.

Roadwork activity

  • EDQ recently completed a $24 million road upgrade project which saw Harbour Road, Hercules Street, Remora Road and MacArthur Avenue upgraded to include four-lane, sub arterial roads with upgraded footpaths, cycle tracks, street lighting, two new signalised intersections, road resurfacing and boulevard planting.

    Is there regular insecticide spraying of the mangrove at the eastern and northern end of Northshore. If so what is the routine schedule as the little sandflies are very aggressive at present? I have tried multiple deterrents, burning citronnela oil, insect trappers, DEET but these are not working and both myself and wife are getting large itching hives from the bites

    There have been several trailers, boats and campers parked along MacArthur Avenue in spaces designated for vehicles. These spaces are specifically for residents who do not have parking spaces for their homes, their visitors and for temporary parking for people delivering to the complexes or doing business. I know that police have a power to issue parking infringements but they obviously are too busy chasing the offenders who have been doing all the breakins and stealing cars in this division, so are BCC parking officers dealing with this? This person who owns the boat is clearly a resident and should know that his boat cannot be parked in public street parking.

    What is the law or council rules in relation to flying drones in the park. We have had a number of incidents in the Northshore Riverside Park where several people have been flying drones within meters of residents balconies, not only is the constant noise disturbing the peace but I am concerned about privacy and safety of residents. I do not want drones with cameras seeing into my apartment where they will be able see whether I am home or away and to see what I have In my apartment that might be tempting for a break in and theft. It was my understanding that you cannot fly drones within a certain distance of private homes, Who do we contact when these drones are flying around our park and what enforcement action can be taken, is it a police matter or a council matter?

    charlie13 asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question.

    The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulates flying of drones and other Remotely Piloted Aircraft in Australia. Information on drone safety rules are available on the CASA website

    You can also report unsafe drone operations directly to CASA. 

    Brisbane City Council also provide guidance on the regulations around flying drones from parkland.

    When is the new park on Hercules St/Remora Rd due for completion and open to the public? Is there going to be any additional parking provided around the park at all? And is it possible to provide me with an aerial photo of the park as I wish to submit an application to Council for a permit for personal training. Thanks!

    Kim Ainslie asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. 

    The Hercules Street Park upgrades are due for completion at the end of 2019, subject to weather. Once the upgrades are complete, the park will be open to the public. There are six car parks that will be provided in the park for parents with prams and disabled persons. Outside of the park, we have outlined all parking available on our Northshore Parking Map

    Any updates on when work on the Northshore Community Pool will be commencing?

    Audra asked over 1 year ago

    EDQ is committed to including a community pool in the Northshore precinct and will look at incorporating this into the development scheme. 

    At this stage we are unsure on the location or timing of delivery of the pool, but if you are looking for a local pool, the closest ones are located in Fortitude Valley, Chermside and Newmarket and details on those are on located on the Brisbane City Council website(External link).

    I wanted to find out what lighting is planned for the park? Specifically will the dog park or village green have any lighting so they can be used safely after dark? If this is not currently in the plans, what is the process to request/petition for this to be included? It would be wonderful to be able to use these facilities even after the sun goes down.

    Susan asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question.

    The Hercules Street Park is fully lit including the Village Green and the dog park.  The hours of operation of the lighting will be determined by Brisbane City Council.

    How often is the Northshore Popup Dog Park cleaned/maintained, and who should I contact with concerns about unsafe conditions?

    Roriori asked over 1 year ago

    The park is mowed on a fortnightly basis, and weekly during the warmer months. As such, the park is assessed regularly. Just last week, the bench was moved back against the fence due to a hole being dug in front of the bench, which has now been resurfaced and cordoned off to allow the grass to establish itself. 

    We would be interested to know more regarding the mentioned unsafe conditions, to ensure that we investigate this immediately.

    Is thee any chance the Northshore park would include a skate park similar to the one recently built by city council? Is there a plan for the park, there’s not much for kids in the area in terms of play equipment, skate parks, etc.

    LA asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your enquiry. The Hercules Street Park upgrades, due for completion at the end of 2019, will not include a skate park, however the Northshore precinct has 30 years of development remaining and we are considering other community activities in this time. Therefore, this is a possibility in the future.

    Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is responsible for creating and managing the planning framework and the development of community facilities and infrastructure including roads and public space within the Northshore Hamilton PDA. Once implemented these assets are handed over to Brisbane City Council (BCC) to maintain. We work closely with BCC to identify community needs and agree on the nature and form of the infrastructure.

    Not only are we looking ahead to the future permanent development, but we are also looking at how we utilise some of our land and existing buildings in the meantime. Providing a diverse selection of activities for a range of age groups is a key objective of ours so we appreciate you bringing this need to our attention and we will bear this in mind when considering future opportunities.

    Will there be a community garden included in the Community park. With all the apartments a space where people can congregate to meet and garden and access fresh herbs and vegetables would be a great contribution to community living
