Queens Wharf Construction to Close Inner-City Street

Brisbane’s inner-city roads will be disrupted for years in order to allow construction of the Queens Wharf Casino Resort to begin. This will begin with the closure of William Street which will remain closed for six years and the rerouting of fifty buses before Christmas.

The major inner-city roadwork changes that will be required for the building of the entertainment resort between William Street and George Street are expected to cost $10 million. William Street is used by 8,000 vehicles per day and will be closed between Elizabeth Street and Margaret Street by the end of the year. Queens Wharf Road along the Brisbane River will be closed permanently.

Fifty bus routes will be redirected which will require an upgrade of eleven inner-city intersections. This is expected to take six to seven months and it must be completed by January 2017.

The Brisbane City Council outlined the plans at a council meeting on Tuesday and has indicated they will formally request from the Queensland Government to cover the costs of the roadworks.

“The work will cost close to $10 million and we will be asking the state government for the money because Queens Wharf is a state government project,” announced a source.

Construction will begin with the demolition of non-heritage buildings including the Executive Building between George and William Street, followed by the Neville Bonner Building on William Street in January 2017.

The laying of foundations for the core development area is planned to begin in 2018 with the core development starting to be developed above ground in 2020. The interiors of the casinos and hotels will begin to be outfitted in 2021 and the Queens Wharf Resort, including hotels, casinos and public areas, is scheduled to be opened in 2022.
