Fairfield station reopening

On Monday 9 January 2023, Queensland Rail and Translink in collaboration with UNITY Alliance will reopen Fairfield station to train services.

When the station reopens, access to platforms 1 and 2 will be via stairs only while construction continues.


Thank you for your ongoing patience during the accessibility rebuild of Fairfield station.

When the station reopens, some facilities and infrastructure will be temporary, including pedestrian access points, lighting and CCTV. A temporary ticket office with a ticket machine and toilet facilities will be located on Equity Street for station customers. go card readers will be located on both platforms at the entry and exit points.

Upon opening, Fairfield station will only be accessible via stairs while construction continues on the lifts. If you require ramp or lift access, please continue to use Yeerongpilly station or StationLink bus route 109. Notification will be provided prior to the new overpass, lifts and ramps opening, which is expected to be in late-2023.

The weekend prior to the station reopening (Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 January 2023) there will be temporary closures of the pedestrian overpass to allow works to be completed safely prior to the station opening for the first train service on Monday 9 January.
