A new 905-car multi-level parking garage at the station will open to the public in October, providing free parking for QR patrons. This marks the completion of Stage One of the TOD project. Stage Two will include further underground works, plus a major retail outlet, and The Fernery .

To accommodate the progress of construction, significant alterations to traffic flow around the site will be implemented. QR stated that whilst these changes may temporarily inconvenience motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, patience and understanding is appreciated.

Motorists will need to access the new parking garage via the intersection at Ferny Way and Samford Road. Exiting the garage will be through a one-way egress onto Arbor Street. Some commuter parking will still be available via Archdale Road to the old parking area.

Pedestrian and bicycle access to the station will remain possible via Archdale Road, Conavalla Street, and Ferny Way.

For bus riders, stops C and D will relocate to Conavalla Street near the new kiss ‘n’ ride and taxi stand. Temporary stop B will continue operating in the tavern parking area. Some bus route redirections may happen intermittently.

QR has released a map (shown above) detailing the changed traffic conditions and locations of parking, pick up/drop off zones, and bus stops. Commuters are advised to plan their travel accordingly during this transition period.

Meanwhile, Stage two will involve further underground works and construction of a major retail outlet and public space known as The Fernery.

The Fernery retail complex will have dedicated parking bays separate from the commuter parking garage. Each apartment in the residential tower will be allocated one or two secure parking spots in an underground garage within the basement.
