Property Investors in the Pine Rivers area are rejoicing at this piece of infrastructure, that will make gaining access to suburbs behind the rail line easier.

Mayor Allan Sutherland and Councillor for Division 8, Mick Gillam, inspected the loop road this week.
“The two ends of Lorraine Court were cut for more than four months,” Councillor Sutherland said. “To open this road ahead of the rest of the overpass is a real coup for local residents who have worked with us the whole way on this project.”
Cr Gillam thanked locals for their patience support and co-operation during the project.
“Today’s announcement signals the start of the final stages of construction for one of the biggest pieces of transport infrastructure to be built in the Moreton Bay Region for many years,” Cr Gillam said.

NEW NETWORK FOR QLD
A beefed-up bus network will be introduced to compliment the new rail line for Moreton Bay
A new bus network and timetable that will deliver more buses and higher frequency services when the Moreton Bay Rail Link (MBRL) is opened mid-year was announced recently.
An extensive six-week community consultation was instrumental in shaping the Queensland Government’s final plan for network.
“More than 3,300 pieces of feedback were considered to design the new bus network and deliver the best outcome for the region,” Queensland minister for transport Stirling Hinchliffe says.
“The changes to the local bus network will support the new MBRL train timetable and achieve a better integrated public transport network for the Moreton Bay region, delivering more high frequency buses and improving transport connections across the community.”
The new timetable provides connections to the new train stations, services new and growing areas and will ensure the network is easier and more intuitive to use.
“I would like to acknowledge the hard work of Queensland Rail and our bus operators Hornibrook Bus Lines, Kangaroo Bus Lines and Thompsons Bus Services who have worked hard to assist in providing new public transport options for the people of the Moreton Bay region,” Hinchliffe says.
The new bus network includes an additional 261 services a week and a range of new options, including additional early morning and night-time services and increased operating hours on six additional routes every weekday.
There will also be more buses on the weekends – with increased operating hours on eight routes throughout the region.
The MBRL project will transform the region, delivering a 14 kilometre dual-track passenger rail line from Lawnton to Kippa-Ring and six new stations.
When the line opens there will be an extra 650 weekly express train services extending out to Moreton Bay, with trains every six to 12 minutes in morning and afternoon peaks and trains every 30 minutes during off-peak times and on weekends.
