Construction is about to start on a new $5.6 million bus station on Wembley Road at Logan Central, south of Brisbane, following the completion of preliminary works late last year.

Queensland Transport Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk says residents will notice continuing changes to the site as the new bus station and island platforms begin to take shape.

"Once complete, the new bus station will provide a high-quality, efficient public transport hub for the area and will cater for current and future service growth," she says.

Local MP Desley Scott said it was pleasing to see the bus station works get officially underway.

"TransLink and the Department of Transport and Main Roads have completed thorough consultation with stakeholders regarding the design and we believe the new station will be of great benefit to Logan City commuters," she says.

"When the station opens later this year it will provide first-class access to some of our busiest routes including the 545 Garden City to Browns Plains and 550 Browns Plains to Springwood buses.

"It will also help to improve the reliability of our services by reducing delays previously caused by buses having to run through the shopping centre car park."

The new bus station will feature two bus platforms, one on each side of Wembley Road, sheltered waiting areas, improved pedestrian access, 24-hour CCTV cameras, improved lighting and improved landscaping with drought-resistant plants.
