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.

From mid-February 2023, there will be pedestrian changes to access Roma Street station. The station entrance will move about 100 metres west (towards Suncorp Stadium). These changes are required to allow construction of the future station throughout 2023.

Roma Street station construction update - November 2022 to January 2023

In November, the Roma Street cavern team will reach a significant milestone with the completion of the permanent lining within the underground cavern. The team is also preparing for the first pre-cast beams to arrive that will form the mezzanine level of the future station. Work to build the station and services buildings is ongoing with both buildings approaching ground level.

Construction activities at Platform 2

As part of the Brisbane Transit Centre demolition, the original coach deck which formed the roof of Platform 2 at Roma Street station was removed. Between late November 2021 and mid-2022, the project will reinstate the platform and install a permanent new roof canopy.

Roma Street station – Services building

The services building is an important structure for the project and will house the mechanical and electrical support systems for the entire Cross River Rail network. It provides all station services including power, water, heating and ventilation, and communications to the underground station via a 150m service tunnel or ‘adit’.
