Brisbane City Council unveils new Metro depot plans

The Brisbane City Council has shown off potential Metro depot and charger plans in Brisbane’s north and east

The Brisbane City Council has revealed plans for the Brisbane Metro project to expand north and east.

Brisbane City Council chair of transport Ryan Murphy says that if Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner is re-elected, then plans will go ahead for a new charging station and depot to be built on a council-owned site in Fitzgibbon.

The plans for a new depot would mean the fully electric and high-frequency Metro vehicles would be serviced in Brisbane’s northern suburbs beyond the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.

“We will also advance negotiations with the state government for an eastern metro line between Coorparoo and Capalaba,” Murphy says in a LinkedIn statement.

“Labor’s Council team has already vowed to block these critical public transport plans for our city if they’re elected to City Hall.”
