Truck-only testing facility opens at Brisbane Entertainment Centre

A dedicated heavy vehicle Covid testing facility will open at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre (BEC) at Boondall from tomorrow at 8am.

Transport and Main Roads said in a statement today that if you are permitted to drive on the Gateway Motorway, you are permitted to access this pop-up site at 1 Melaleuca Drive.

Truckies should take exit 117 from the Gateway and the site will be open until 4pm, seven days a week.

“Walk-ins and light vehicles will not be tested.”

4Cyte Pathology staff will be onsite to assist drivers who will exit their vehicles to take the test.

“Queensland Government will continue to work with industry and pathology providers to identify testing site options that are suitable for heavy vehicles, and will provide further updates, the statement reads.

“We thank the health professionals who are working tirelessly undertaking testing at these new sites seven days a week and ask for patience and courtesy when attending testing.”
