Queens Wharf to Add Water Features to Combat Expressway Noise

The Queens Wharf entertainment complex and casino development is planning to combat the noise from the nearby Riverside Expressway with natural noise. The Expressway, with 130,000 vehicles travelling through the Queens Wharf district is one of Brisbane’s busiest roads and generates a significant amount of noise.

Geoff Hogg, managing director of Star Entertainment Group Queensland, said that the noise was something the group would need to accept and deal with and they plan to do this by creating their own ambient noise.

“The reason we’ve got a lot of water going through the public realm is that water is a subtle way to change noise,” he stated.

“We’ve obviously focused a lot on the subtropical, but you’ll notice there are areas throughout where we’ve got water and bits and pieces to counteract the noise.”

“There are structures you can do – noise mainly goes up, not down [and] you counter with other noise. We’re putting quite a bit of music into the precinct through speakers, but we’re trying not to have music and artificial sound over the top of, say, water and other noises.”

“You literally have to turn that up when the crowd’s quiet and when the crowds are there, the noise of people will set the actual expressway.”

Mr Hogg admitted that this was one part of the Queens Wharf development that was not ideal; however, conceded that “it’s like everything, you have some parts of the development you like and others that are a little harder, so you make the most of it.”

Since 2008, there has been a push to find a solution for the Riverside Expressway with the Brisbane City Council proposing that moving the expressway underground should be the city’s “ultimate aim.”
