We would like to take this opportunity to update you on the early operational works that have commenced on site at Montrose, the new master planned community we are creating in Morayfield.

About Ausbuild

We are a local, family-owned company that has been delivering quality homes and community infrastructure across South-East Queensland for more than 30 years. Our strong ties with the Moreton Bay region are demonstrated through our master planned community in Warner, The Sanctuary and our ongoing investment in community building initiatives, including a partnership with Bray Park State High School (an additional high school partnership is also in the works), our 2022 sponsorship of the NZ Warriors (whose home stadium was the Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe), and with partners Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism, major sponsorship of local events across the region (including the Redcliffe KiteFest). In keeping with our core value of community, it is of utmost importance that we communicate regularly with our neighbours and stakeholders.

About Montrose

Montrose is a new residential community located on Robbs and Blewers Roads, Morayfield. Upon completion, Montrose will provide approximately 600 new homes, four dedicated local parks, a childcare centre and over 12 hectares of parkland and Environmental Conservation (EC) zones for this growing region.


Montrose will be delivered in stages, with 13 stages currently in the pipeline. The first phase of development is on track for delivery in mid-2023. Stages 1 and 2 comprise development on either side of Robbs Road and will deliver 130 residential lots and a local park that will include exercise equipment and extensive landscaping. The Local Park and EC zones are positioned to the north of Robbs Road, with the northernmost boundary bordering the Lindsay Road Sportsground.


  • The subdivision approvals have been granted for Stages 1 to 9.
  • The subdivision approval for Stage 10 is pending.
  • Development Applications will be lodged for subsequent stages as the timeline progresses.

Operational Works

Stages 1 and 2 have the appropriate Operational Works approvals including Bulk Earthworks, Civil, Landscaping and Rehabilitation Works. BMD Group has commenced civil works, which are programmed to be completed mid-2023 (weather pending). Civil works will operate between the approved hours of 6:30 am to 6:30 pm, Monday to Saturday.


Traffic Management Plans are in place to manage access and egress from the site, and where required, road safety personnel will assist the safe flow of traffic. Access for residents and emergency services will be maintained. Traffic Management will include the following changes to access: 

  • Currently, Clark Road is closed to through traffic for upgrades including sewer main installation. This work is expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter in 2023 at which point Clark Road would be reopened to through traffic.
  • At the appropriate time, a traffic management plan will be approved to temporarily close Robbs Road for a major upgrade including raising the road at the eastern gully to be above the 1 in 100-year flood level. Progress updates will be provided closer to the time. During this time, access will be provided via Blewers and Anderson Roads. 
  • Local residents along Robbs Road who are unaffected by the development will continue to have access.
  • All trucks entering and exiting the site will be required to follow a specific approved transport route.
  • The community are asked to be aware of the changing conditions.

Additionally, best practice dust mitigation will also be employed throughout the civil works phase, including the deployment of water trucks.

Environmental Safeguards

All open space areas will be planted and revegetated with native species in accordance with the approved landscaping plans developed for the site by Saunders Havill Group. 

To protect wildlife in the area, temporary fencing has been installed around the development to discourage wildlife from entering the site. During the early stage of development, trees were removed from the site, including introduced weed varieties such as Camphor Laurel. Fauna spotters have overseen vegetation clearing to support wildlife protection efforts during this period of works.
