Cross River Rail is Queensland’s largest infrastructure project and it is important the public have opportunities to learn more about the project and understand why it is being built, how it will be built and what it means for the future of public transport in South East Queensland.
The Cross River Rail Experience Centre will also unlock Cross River Rail’s potential as an education opportunity for Queensland school children with interactive digital visualisation technologies, STEM learning resources, cultural heritage content, project progress information and geological artefacts.
In addition, the Experience Centre has been developed as a ‘digital first’ innovation centre for use by engineers and designers who will use the sophisticated digital technologies and digital content to assist with design and construction of Cross River Rail over the next five years.
How the experience centre will be used to assist with Cross River Rail Delivery
The Experience Centre’s Reality Theatre allows engineers and designers a unique opportunity to put themselves at scale into any aspect of the Project’s built environment, using an interactive 3D model of the project that is true to current reference design.
This can also be achieved without the need for VR headsets, which allows groups to visit and discuss built outcomes without the barrier or seclusion that comes with a more standard VR environment.
This new resource is also available to whole-of-government, to Cross River Rail’s construction partners and to numerous stakeholder groups engaged in delivery of the project. Unlocking a myriad of opportunities where immersion in a virtual twin of the built project will stimulate innovation and lead to improved outcomes.
In partnership with the Queensland Museum
The Queensland Museum Network have supported the development of the Experience Centre with advice and expertise to assist in the refinement of the Experience Centre’s design and content as well as providing historical content for use in the exhibits.
