Yeronga station accessibility rebuild update
Due to wet weather throughout November and predicted for December, construction at Yeronga station has been delayed. We are developing a new timeline with the aim to reopen the station in January 2022. Keep an eye on our website for more updates. Thank you for your ongoing patience while we rebuild Yeronga station.
A significant amount of work has taken place within the narrow rail corridor since Yeronga station closed in April. Essentially, it has meant demolishing significant parts of the old, outdated station and rebuilding it to be ready for the next stage of construction works.
Since Yeronga closed, crews have demolished the existing station building, platforms and overpass over the rail corridor and Fairfield Road, rebuilt platforms 1 and 2 to a high-level platform and built a 3rd platform, relocated in-ground services, constructed retaining walls, added new platform slabs, coping stone, and tactile, lifted sections of the new pedestrian overpass into place over the rail corridor and installed temporary service and ticket office to support the next stage of construction works.
Cross River Rail would like to thank the community for their patience throughout the closure, and their continued patience while work continues and station features come online in 2022.
When the station reopens, Yeronga station will only be accessible via stairs. If you require ramp or lift access, please continue to use Yeerongpilly station or StationLink bus route 109. On opening day, most facilities and infrastructure will be temporary. A temporary ticket office with ticket machine and toilet facilities will be located on Lake Street for station customers. go card readers will be located on both platforms at the entry and exit points.
Construction activities will continue in stages as described below until mid-2022:
- Stage 1: Yeronga station reopened with temporary access via stairs to Platforms 1 and 2
- Stage 2: Station shelters and canopies installed
- Stage 3: New pedestrian overpass with lifts and stairs open
- Stage 4: Parking, bicycle shelter, footpaths and landscaping complete.
