Browns Plains' bus station at Logan City to Brisbane’s south looks likely to receive an $11 million dollar makeover, but not until after residents go to the polls at this year’s Queensland elections.

The bus station at Grand Plaza Shopping Centre will be refurbished with additional capacity for four new indented bus stops along Browns Plains Road, with sheltered waiting platforms.

The revamped station will have improved pedestrian access to the shopping centre, new driver amenities and additional layover bays for out-of-service buses.

The upgrade includes the installation of CCTV, a passenger drop-off area, bike storage facilities and landscaping with drought-resistant plants.

The $11 million upgrade is part of the Queensland Government's Station Upgrade Program.

Work on the upgrades is expected to start in late 2012 with the station open by late 2013.

TransLink will have an information stand at Grand Plaza Shopping Centre for Browns Plains Logan City residents to review the draft design.
