When Ipswich's second Carl's Jr Burger will open

WEATHER has delayed construction a new commercial precinct in West Ipswich but developers say the centre is on track to open in June.

This month, concrete slabs that will make up the buildings at the new centre being built by Synergy Property Partners, on Brisbane St were erected.

Synergy's development manager Sam Hill said tenants had been confirmed for all but two shop spaces.

U.S. burger giant Carl's Jr, outdoor mega store Anaconda will take another spot with Bridgestone Tyres and a 7-Eleven service station anchoring the precinct.

Mr Hill said roadworks would be undertaken before the precinct could open.

"That will be the last works to be done before the grand opening in mid to late June," Mr Hill said.

"Structurally, how it looks now will be how it looks when everything is finished.'

Mr Hill also confirmed a memorial plaque would be installed on the corner of the block.

"We have designed it in consultation with the council and have decided on a memorial that will acknowledge the history of the area and the first surveyors," he said.

"It will be a concrete panel with a big plaque, in a style in keeping with the Workshops Rail Museum."
