The new Cross River Rail underground station will see Roma Street become Brisbane’s most connected transport precinct.

A new underground station at Roma Street will link passengers with the existing suburban bus and rail networks, the Brisbane City Council Metro services, as well as regional and interstate bus and train services.

Roma Street station construction update - June 2021

Excavation for both the new station entry and services building shafts is now underway. Our underground team reached a milestone in May, having now excavated the entire 280m length of the underground cavern. We will now focus on removing the bottom section of the station cavern, also known as the bench, before the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) arrive in the coming months.
