Tunnelling has commenced

At our Roma Street site, roadheader has been lowered into the access shaft and has already commenced tunnelling, as we begin excavation of the giant cavern that will ultimately form the new Roma Street underground station.

Five roadheaders will be used in total on the project and they will dig also the southern section Cross River Rail’s twin tunnels, running from Woolloongabba to Boggo Road.

Around Our Work Sites

2020 is a big year for Cross River Rail with the number of active work sites set to increase from eight to eighteen in just one year.

During this time we expect to complete demolition at both Albert Street and Roma Street while tunnelling will begin at Woolloongabba, large scale excavation will progress at Boggo Road and we will see work starting in earnest at both Exhibition Station to the north and at the project’s southern tunnel portal south of Boggo Road.
