GTA has been working closely with the Queensland Department of Health in the role of Specialist Traffic and Transport Advisors for the Herston Quarter Redevelopment Project (HQRP). The HQRP covers an area of some five hectares within the State Government’s Herston Quarter Priority Development Area. This forms the Herston Health Precinct and includes northern Brisbane's major health facilities: the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.
Working collaboratively within the wider Technical Advisory Team and the Department, our goal is to create a landmark Brisbane destination which establishes a global benchmark for health precincts. Currently, our role has comprised advising the future design and operations of the Specialist Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care Centre as well as thorough investigations of the existing operations and development activity for the HQRP. The findings of these investigations are now being used to develop the pedestrian, bicycle and internal roadway facilities for the HQRP.
