Project Overview

Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 kilometre rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 kilometres of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and the CBD.

South East Queensland’s population is rising, putting our transport network under pressure.

The current rail network is already nearing capacity and is constrained by a single river crossing and just four inner-city stations, causing the bottleneck that limits our ability to run more trains.

The Cross River Rail project unlocks this bottleneck by delivering a second river crossing, allowing more trains to run more often and integrating with new roads and new bus services to enable a turn-up-and-go public transport system across the whole of South East Queensland.

This transformational project will improve our quality of life, help our economy keep growing, generate thousands of jobs and activate urban development, across the whole of South East Queensland.
