Transforming Travel

Cross River Rail is a new 10.2km rail line that includes 5.9km of twin tunnels running under the Brisbane River and CBD; with four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street.

The project will also deliver a new above-ground station at Exhibition, a rebuild for seven stations between Dutton Park and Salisbury; construction of three new stations on the Gold Coast; construction of two new train stabling facilities and installation of a new world-class signalling system.

Project Benefits

Cross River Rail will transform the way we travel across the whole of South East Queensland. Journeys will be quicker there will be new stations in more convenient locations, there will be capacity to increase train services as our population grows and public transport will become a more viable option for the whole of our region, helping to ease congestion on our roads.

Cross River Rail is under construction at sixteen worksites across South East Queensland

Cross River Rail will transform travel in the future, but it does mean significant construction needs to take place now. This means from time to time there are changes to access to roads, footpaths and public transport services as we continue our work across multiple worksites across South East Queensland.

Cross River Rail: Brisbane’s new underground

The new rail route will run from Dutton Park, through Exhibition Station and will reconnect to the existing network after Breakfast Creek.

The first underground station from the South is Boggo Road.

Next is Woolloongabba. This station will be located opposite The Gabba stadium.

Images show the proposed new Woolloongabba station entrance at night time; proposed green space around the station building; the inside of the station building has escalators leading down to the platforms.

An engineering animation shows that the station platform will be built several levels underground.

Underground, the tunnels will continue through the rock layer below the Brisbane River and arrive at a new Albert Street station.

Albert Street station is also built several levels under the ground. There are two entrances to this station; the main entrance will be on the corner of Albert and Mary Streets, and another entrance will be closer to Elizabeth Street and the Queen Street Mall.

Images show concepts for the proposed Albert Street including a large awning providing shade over the main southern entrance on Albert Street. A combination of lifts and escalators will help passengers get down to the station platforms, which are several levels below ground.

The rail line then continues underground through the CBD to a new Roma Street underground station.

Animations show the concept design for the station platform, as if you are arriving via a train at Roma Street. Concept images show a proposed plaza area with trees, shade, cafes and seating outside the ground-level station entrance. The new station will connect with existing bus and rail infrastructure at this location.

New residential and commercial opportunities could be developed above the new station, once it is completed. Designs for the new station entry show views looking through to the heritage-listed Station Building at Roma Street.

The rail line continues, with the tunnel surfacing at Normanby before travelling to the newly upgraded Exhibition Station. After Exhibition station, the rail line travels through Mayne Yard and joins with the existing rail network beyond Breakfast Creek.

A map shows the 10.2 kilometres of new track stretching through the city from Dutton Park to Exhibition station and into the existing northern rail lines.

Station Precincts
