The Queensland Government will help fast track the next phase of construction at Yarrabilba, which will include a new state primary school for the masterplanned community.
Yarrabilba is an $11 billion community in the fast-growing Logan corridor, home to more than 9000 residents, four schools, two childcare centres, a shopping centre, cafes, restaurants and health services.
The State Government will contribute $15 million towards new infrastructure works at Yarrabilba as part of its Building Acceleration Fund (BAF) program, with Lendlease co-investing $9.8 million.
Works will support 100 jobs and include earthworks, water, sewer, electrical and communications mains, streetscaping and roadworks for the next 2000 residential lots, paving the way for the new school site.
Lendlease Queensland Head of Development Guy Gibson congratulates the government for the investment.

“The $15 million BAF contribution will unlock the next exciting precinct for Yarrabilba, featuring more than 2,000 residential lots close to the school, an environmental corridor and parklands, and the future Yarrabilba Town Centre,” Gibson said.
“Today’s announcement ensures Yarrabilba can meet the growing demand for new homes in the Logan region while providing important community services and supporting local jobs.”
