About the project

The Ogden Street Transport Revitalisation project is designed to activate the heart of Townsville's CBD and adjoining areas by improving the ease of access to the key restaurant and shopping precincts.

Conrad Gargett's design was informed by community consultation and consolidates the disparate bus stations surrounding Main Street and Flinders Street into a key interchange. The design incorporates a continuous roof-scape of signage, shop awnings and bus shelters, with indigenous artwork displayed on the soffits to provide visual interest and a link to the local community. Once complete, the bus hub will intergrate with Townsville's new stadium and link with the $28 million waterfront promenade.
