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. A temporary roof was installed.

Between late November 2021 and mid-2022, the project will reinstate the platform and install a permanent new roof canopy. Most of the work will be completed at night due to traffic permit requirements.

Platform 2 will remain operational throughout the work.
