The lab team are currently working with Brisbane Marketing’s Global Precinct Team to solve the challenge: how might we enhance connectivity to, from and within the Upper Mt Gravatt / Eight Mile Plains precinct, with a focus on “first and last mile”?
Why is this a challenge?
To maximise potential growth of the precinct and fully harness the opportunity provided by Brisbane Metro, a diverse range of mobility options is needed, particularly for first and last mile connectivity.
What are the benefits to stakeholders?
Longer-term benefits include improved access to workers, greater mobility and a more-integrated, better-connected precinct.
Immediate benefits include cementing of stakeholder relationships, building collaborative investment and growing the influence and reach of the precinct network.
What are the benefits to wider Brisbane?
Upper Mt Gravatt / Eight Mile Plains is not alone in facing connectivity challenges. The findings from the Lab can inform the approach in other precincts to boost the catalytic impacts of major new transport infrastructure investment.
