Robertson is an outer-southern suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.[3] In the 2016 census, Robertson had a population of 4,973 people.[1]

Geography[edit]

Robertson is 13.7 kilometres (9 mi) by road (M3 Freeway) south-east of the Brisbane CBD.[4]

Robertson is loosely bounded by Kessels Road to the north, Mains Road to the east, Mccullough Street to the south, and Troughton Road to the west, but excludes the Sunnybank Plaza Shopping Centre to the south-east.[5]

The land use is almost entirely residential.[5]

History[edit]

Robertson was named on 1 August 1967 by the Queensland Place Names Board in memory of Doctor William Nathaniel Robertson (1866-1938) who was a member of the University of Queensland Senate.[4] He was also a foundation member of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

In the mid-1960s Robertson was the unsubdivided southern part of Sunnybank, defined by Musgrave Road and a drive-in picture theatre at the corner of Musgrave and Troughton Roads. A shopping centre, Sunnybank Plaza, was opened in 1975 at the south-east corner of Robertson, and a State primary school in the middle of the suburb was opened in 1980. The population grew more than threefold to over 3000 between 1976 and 1986 as the Nathan campus of Griffith University (1975) developed. The primary school's enrolment topped 600 in 2002.[6]

Sunnybank Plaza was refurbished and enlarged in 1989 and 1995, growing to 30,000 sq metres, with a Kmart, supermarkets, cinemas and 122 other shops.[6]

Robertson State School opened on 29 January 1980 with 124 students.[7][8][9] The Robertson State Preschool Centre opened two weeks later with an initial enrolment of 26.[10] The school was officially opened by the Minister for Education, Val Bird, and by 1987 it had 600 students on roll.[10]

Education[edit]

Robertson State School[edit]

Robertson State School is a government primary (Prep-6) school for boys and girls at 688 Musgrave Road (27°33′55″S 153°03′22″E / 27.5654°S 153.0562°E / -27.5654; 153.0562 (Robertson State School)).[11][12] In 2020, the school had an enrolment of 728 students with 50 teachers (46.3 full-time equivalent) and 31 non-teaching staff (18.4 full-time equivalent).[13] It includes a special education program.[11]

Student background[edit]

The school is known for its high performing academic results, with a school ICSEA (Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage) value of 1126 in comparison to the average of 1000. It scores a school ICSEA percentile of 91. [14]

Students[edit]

There are a total of 728 enrolments consisting of 355 boys (49%) and 373 girls (51%). 78% of all students have a language background other than English.[14]

Secondary Schools[edit]

There are no secondary schools in Robertson. The nearest secondary schools are Sunnybank State High School in Sunnybank to the south and MacGregor State High School in MacGregor to the east.[5] Many students, however, choose non-catchment partially selective schools such as Brisbane State High School, Mansfield State High School and Queensland Academies for Science, Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) due to their prestigious titles and quality in education.

Public Transport[edit]

Robertson is considered a location of reasonable public transport service. The Brisbane City Council bus lines 130 and 140 that pass through Mains Road at the 'Mains Road at Robertson bus stop', operated by Translink, the state public transport operating service, are run on a network of 'no timetable needed' high frequency buses known as Bus Upgrade Zone (BUZ) services. [15]

According to the BCC, BUZ services operate daily:

  • 6am - 11.30pm
  • every 10 minutes or less during commuter peak times
  • every 15 minutes or less at all other times.

BUZ Route 130[edit]

This image represents the Mains Road at Robertson bus stop, servicing the 130, P137, 139, 140, 599 and a few other bus services.

The 130 bus line that runs from Drewvale/Parkinson is a direct express 'City express' service that runs through major commercial precincts and key destinations such as the Sunnybank Commercial Shopping Centre (Market Square), Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre (QSAC), or formerly known as QEII Stadium, Griffith University key interchange, Mater Hill busway station (Hospital), South bank busway station, Cultural Centre busway station and finally Queen Street bus station in the CBD of Brisbane. [16][17]

BUZ Route 140[edit]

The 40 bus line that runs from Browns Plains, Queensland is a direct express 'City express' service that runs through most main roads as the 130 bus line, however has altered commencement points. This service joins onto the South East Busway as well.[18]

Other services[edit]

Other services that run through Robertson are the 135[19]and 120, which both lead to the city. Other services available from the Mains Rd at Robertson bus stop are the P137,[20] Creek St CBD express, the 139,[21] direct link to the University of Queensland via the busway, and the 598 and 599, the Great Circle Lines passing through many suburbs in Brisbane.

Transporation overcrowding[edit]

A capacity representation of 130 and 140 bus services during peak hours. Taken between May and July 2021.

Overcrowding on the 130 and 140 bus lines have widely considered an issue for many students and residents in the suburb, and those neighbouring suburbs of Sunnybank, MacGregor, and Sunnybank Hills from 2006 to 2014. [22][23][24] However, due to an increase in Translink fares increase, many resorted to privatised transportation, slowly emptying capacity and reducing demand for these public transport lines, being then reported as Australia's most expensive public transport system. [25]

However, from 2019 to August 2021, ridership and patronage amongst these lines have slowly increased. Although many other lines throughout Brisbane have upgraded to Bi-articulated buses, the 130 and 140 have not received any upgrades, despite increase in patronage. The council has been unable to provide higher capacity vehicles, especially to cater for such demand during after-school rush from the South Bank busway station due to a high percentage of students from Brisbane State High School travelling on these services from 15:00 AEST to 15:30 AEST. Morning peak hour rush can also be uncomfortable, especially with increased patronage from the newly constructed QSAC Mains Road Park 'n' ride.
