Houses in Brisbane

Eleven homes originally scheduled for demolition as part of the Logan Rail Corridor redevelopment are set to be saved and repurposed as social housing for Queenslanders in need. 

The first social home has already made the journey to its new location in Sunnybank and is being made ready for new tenants.

A contract has been awarded to move another social home and nine more tenders are currently open.

Member for Stretton, James Martin, welcomed the first social home from the Logan Rail Corridor redevelopment to Sunnybank.

“The large family home will open its doors to its new Sunnybank residents shortly after it is refurbished,” Mr Martin said. 

Queensland Housing Minister, Meaghan Scanlon, said, “My focus is on getting Queenslanders in need into social housing sooner, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.

“When we found out these homes were suitable for relocation, we jumped at the chance to repurpose them for social housing.

“Whether it’s through moving homes earmarked for demolition or repurposing retirement homes – we’re putting all options on the table to help Queenslanders.”

Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said the Logan Rail Corridor will not only provide Queenslanders with better transport but will now be responsible for housing Queenslanders in need. 

“The Queensland Government will continue to work across portfolios to find new ways to help Queenslanders.”
