In late 1942, a camp for the Civil Construction Corps camp was built across from Chermside Army Camp on a site near where Piccadilly Street met Ellison Road. It was the main Civil Construction Corps camp Camp for Brisbane’s northside and it was responsible for building all AWC-approved defence sites across the northern suburbs.
