This shelter generally conforms to the P.1008 Standard Waiting Shelter design produced by BCC during the late 1940s. Drawn by the BCC Department of Works, this design was signed off by City Architect Frank Costello in 1945, although it does not resemble Costello’s style. These shelters closely resembles those constructed by Brisbane Tramway Trust (BTT) during the 1920-30s, and may be a continuation of the earlier BTT design. The hipped roof pavilion shelter stands on a concrete pad straddling the footpath. The roof is clad with terracotta tiles and the eaves are intact.
