Any work-in-progress photos for Stones Corner?

Postby ggm » Mon Jun 06, 2011 2:33 pm

If anyone here has site-access and a camera, I'd love to see some work-in-progress stuff for the new busway work in Stones Corner, or any of the work around Brisbane which people have.

Such a shame the funding cut out at Langlands Pool, the tunnel up to Coorparoo Junction and Beyond is really vital to stopping the bottlenecks on Old Cleveland Rd.

(actually I wish the trams were still running more, but some dreams just can't be met)

The work is heavily advanced, and is easily visible at both stations from Old Cleveland Road and surrounding streets. Won't be long before opening now - definitely before year's end we are told.

Nearmap (http://www.nearmap.com) has some good aerial progress shots of various projects in Brisbane.

Here's Stones Corner: http://www.nearmap.com/?ll=-27.499041,153.044121&z=17&t=k&nmd=20110507
This is a Beaudesert train. The next station is Kyogle where this train terminates. Passengers for the CountryLink service to Sydney please change trains here.
