Once fully cleared, the area between Vulture Street and Stanley Street in Woolloongabba, directly adjacent to the Woolloongabba Busway, will become the staging area for the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) and Roadheaders. These TBMs will be used to drill the twin tunnels after which the site will become the location of the new underground Woolloongabba station.

Upon completion, the Landcentre, Dental Hospital and Goprint sites will become the first full station site prepped and ready for Cross River Rail construction.

The Goprint building demolition was completed by Lawton-based company Caylamax Demolitions, you can read more about this below.

Landcentre building and South Brisbane Dental Hospital demolition

Works at the 16,000-square metre site have begun, with heavy demolition expected to begin in September.

Important information about these works

  • Work will mostly be completed between 6.30am and 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
  • Work will not be scheduled on public holidays, or during events at The Gabba Stadium.
  • During works, nearby businesses and residents may experience an increase in noise, dust and vibration. These impacts will be reduced as much as possible by removing internal building fittings first, followed by the building facade.
  • While traffic delays should be minor, traffic controllers will be in place as required to maintain the safety of workers, road users and the community.
  • Truck movements to remove waste will be confined to Vulture and Leopard streets.
