    Works to demolish and remediate the former Yeronga TAFE site are now complete.

    The contractor will soon begin removing all equipment and machinery from the site. Traffic control and signage will be in place to advise of any truck movements and to assist road users and pedestrians to move safely around the site during this time.

    The site will then be hydro-mulched as a form of dust mitigation, which will be regularly monitored. Further hydro-mulch will be laid if required in the future.

    We thank you for your patience while these works were completed. Our next update will be in early 2020, once a developer is appointed to undertake construction of the new mixed use precinct.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions about this project, please contact us through the Have your Say website, or email edqengagement@dsdmip.qld.gov.au.

    We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

    Kind regards
    The Yeronga Project Team

    Works to complete demolition of the former Yeronga TAFE site are continuing, with ENERGEX advising EDQ they will begin disconnecting the existing transformer around Thursday 17 October 2019.

    Works to then demolish and remove the building will commence shortly after and will continue for approximately six weeks, weather and construction conditions permitting.

    These demolition and removal works will be undertaken in accordance with the relevant legislation and safety guidelines, as per all other demolition works previously undertaken on site.

    During these works, residents and businesses near the site may experience construction noise, dust, vibration and truck movements. Where necessary, traffic controllers and signage will be in place to assist with truck movements and to assist road users and pedestrians safely around the site.

    We appreciate your patience while these works are completed.

    If you have any questions in relation to these works, please contact us through the Have your Say website, or email edqengagement@dsdmip.qld.gov.au

  • Construction update - September 2019

    Early works are continuing on the former Yeronga TAFE site, with EDQ’s contractors mobilising to begin removing a small number of trees from Monday 30 September 2019.

    These trees need to be removed as asbestos containing material has been found in their root systems. It should take approximately two days to complete, weather conditions permitting.

    Works will continue to remove asbestos containing material from site.

    Once these works are completed, ENERGEX will remove the transformer from the site, which will then enable demolition of the remaining building to be undertaken. This is likely to occur in late-2019.

    All vegetation and asbestos removal works are being undertaken in accordance with the relevant legislation and safety guidelines.

    During these works, residents and businesses near the site may experience construction noise, dust, vibration and truck movements. Where necessary, traffic controllers and signage will be in place to assist with truck movements and to assist road users and pedestrians safely around the site.

    If you have any questions in relation to these works, please contact us through the Have your Say website, or email edqengagement@dsdmip.qld.gov.au

    Above ground demolition on the Villa St Yeronga development site is close to completion. The demolition contractor, Rosenlund Deconstruction Civil Engineering, will now begin the process of moving equipment from the site as the demolition work progresses to completion in mid-March. Rosenlund has advised this will be conducted over a few stages in the coming weeks with all attempts made to minimise disruption to the community.

    The first major piece of equipment to be moved will be a large excavator. The excavator will be loaded on to a steel float and driven by a single truck using the route outlined above. The truck will pass down Park Road, along School Road, down Cardross Street, then on to Fairfield Road.

    To minimise the impact of the relocation on local traffic and to help ensure the safety of local residents this move will occur in the early hours of Thursday morning (21 February 2019), at approximately 3am. The excavator will be loaded into place during normal working hours, however it is possible that residents may hear some noises when the truck leaves the site. The truck will also be accompanied by two pilot vehicles with flashing lights. It is anticipated that the truck will be off site in less than thirty minutes and will then pass down the route indicated.

    Ensuring community safety and any disruption is minimised are the two key priorities. This relocation process will be conducted in accordance with the relevant legislation, regulation and guidelines.

    After a comprehensive expressions of interest process, EDQ has shortlisted three community interest groups to co-locate with the Yeronga Community Centre (YCC) within the Yeronga Priority Development Area (PDA).

    The shortlisted proponents include Children’s Health Queensland (Kids In Mind), Annerley-Stephens History Group Inc. and All Gauge Model Railway Club Inc. and all offer services complimentary to, and consistent with the objectives of the Yeronga Community Centre.

    EDQ ran a comprehensive EOI process to explore what opportunities existed to maximise the benefits for not only the YCC through planned co-location of other organisations, but also for the greater Yeronga community in terms of better service delivery.

    The next step in the process will see the three shortlisted proponents participate in developing the overarching vision for the co-located facilities in the context and setting of the new Yeronga Community Centre.
