Demolition works at Cross River Rail’s Woolloongabba station site are now complete with over 94% of building waste from the Landcentre and old South Brisbane Dental Hospital recycled.

Demolition contractors, DECC, have recycled most of the concrete, metal, aluminium and copper from the nine-storey building.

Following decades of heavy industrial use, as a rail holding yard and print works, site remediation works are now underway with up to seven excavators onsite removing soil to a depth of four metres in some areas.

Cross River Rail is set to be the catalyst for revitalising the wider 6.5-hectare precinct around the new underground station.

Better transport connectivity is crucial to developing a new urban precinct that would stack up in comparison to any global competitors.

When Cross River Rail is operational, Woolloongabba will be just three minutes from Albert Street and three minutes from the Ecosciences precinct at Boggo Road, making it the perfect location for new mixed-use development and new open spaces.

The Woolloongabba site will be the engine room of the project, hosting the massive tunnel boring machines which will dig the majority of Cross River Rail’s twin 5.9km tunnels under Brisbane’s river and CBD.
