Yeronga station closure
Yeronga station will close from 19 April 2021 for approximately six (6) months as part of the Cross River Rail station rebuilds between Fairfield and Salisbury. The station is being rebuilt to increase accessibility and create a better transport experience for all customers.
Why is the closure of Yeronga station necessary?
- The station closure allows for the reconstruction of the existing platforms to occur more efficiently and safely
- Reduces the number of station and platform access changes for customers around active construction areas
- Shortens the overall construction duration by approximately twelve months
- Significantly less construction work will be required on weekends and night shifts.
Introducing route 109 – your StationLink
To support customers during the closure, new route 109 – StationLink – will be introduced, running between Moorooka and Boggo Road stations.
StationLink will service two new stops at Yeronga station, on Fairfield Road, as well as two existing stops near Ovendean Street.
You’ll be able to track StationLink in real time using the below resources
Parking and active travel
During the closure, some parking will still be available on Lake Street and the Yeronga station commuter car park on Fairfield Road will remain open for people wishing to catch StationLink, cycle, or walk to a neighbouring station.
The closest stations to Yeronga are Fairfield station towards the City (approximately 8 minute cycle, 20 minute walk) or Yeerongpilly station towards Beenleigh (approximately 3 minute cycle, 13 minute walk).
