Construction of Ferny Grove Central is subject to Brisbane City Council and Department of Transport and Main Roads approvals. Construction is expected to begin in July 2021 and the build is anticipated to take approximately 28 months. The construction is undertaken in 2 stages to minimise the site disturbance. During the first stage of construction, parking will be reduced, however areas for the kiss 'n' ride will be allocated together with disabled spaces and areas for cyclists & motorbikes.
