Fairfield station accessibility rebuild update

Due to wet weather throughout November and predicted for December, construction at Yeronga station has been delayed. Therefore the closure of Fairfield station has also been delayed. We are developing a new timeline with the aim to close Fairfield station in January 2022. Keep an eye on our website for more updates.

The works at Fairfield station will include:

  • Reconstruction of platforms 1 and 2 and addition of a 3rd platform
  • Relocation of in-ground services, construction of new retaining walls, installation of new shade canopies and station furniture (seating, bins, etc.)
  • construction of a new pedestrian overpass, lifts and stairs
  • Installation of services including CCTV, wayfinding signage, lighting and ticketing.

When the station reopens, construction will continue to complete permanent features. These activities have less on an impact on station operations and will occur when services are operating from the station.

To help customers reach their destination during the station closure, there will be multiple transport options. See below for our top travel tips.
