Eight Mile Plains busway station is the southern most station on the South East Busway in Brisbane, Australia serving the suburb of Eight Mile Plains. It opened on 30 April 2001 when the busway was extended from Woolloongabba.[1][2]

It is currently the last station on the South East Busway, and is connected to the Springwood bus station by the Pacific Motorway. It is enclosed by a number of major roads including Logan Road, Miles Platting Road, the Pacific Motorway and the Gateway Motorway. It features a free park & ride facility.[3]

Proposed busway extension[edit]

It is proposed to extend the South East Busway to connect Eight Mile Plains station with Springwood bus station by a dedicated 4.8 kilometres (3.0 mi) busway with an additional stop at Rochedale. The extension is to coincide with an upgrade to the adjacent section of the Pacific Motorway.

The preferred alignment for the busway extension corridor was determined in 2007 and a Concept Design Study was undertaken by the Queensland Government in 2009.[4] Currently buses must exit the busway and travel along the Pacific Motorway to reach Springwood.

Services[edit]

Eight Mile Plains busway station is served by 10 routes operated by Brisbane Transport, Clarks Logan City Bus Service, Mt Gravatt Bus Service and Transdev Queensland as part of the TransLink network.[5]
