Roma Street Site – Early Works

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.

Demolition of existing buildings will begin in late-2019, totally transforming the whole precinct by 2025.

Brisbane Coach Terminal relocation

In June 2018, it was announced the Brisbane Transit Centre will be demolished to make way for the new Cross River Rail underground station at Roma Street. The Brisbane Coach Terminal (Coach Terminal), which is located on Level 3 of the Brisbane Transit Centre west tower, will be relocated for a period of 5–10 years to a temporary facility at Parkland Crescent, adjacent to Platform 10 of the existing Roma Street station.

The Roma Street station precinct will go through a detailed process of redevelopment and a longer-term solution for the Coach Terminal will be considered as part of this planning.

Construction of this temporary terminal began in early November 2018 and works will continue to be conducted between 6:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday until completion. Works will not be scheduled on public holidays or during events at Roma Street Parkland.

The new temporary coach terminal will be operational from Monday 16 September 2019

The Construction Environmental Management Plan outlines the potential environmental impacts and the associated management measures that will be used by CRRDA and its contractors to mitigate and minimise these impacts.

Important information about access changes

Over the coming months, residents and commuters will experience traffic and pedestrian access changes as construction is completed. Signage is in place to advise users of these changes.

Please note, access to Roma Street Parkland, Roma Street Station, Cornerstone and College Close car parks, and Parkland Apartments will be maintained.

From Thursday 1 August 2019, the following access will be in place (construction and weather permitting):

  • Accessible setdown and pickup zone on Parkland Crescent, in front of the Roma Street station Platform 10 main entrance.
  • Setdown and pickup zone on Parkland Boulevard.
  • Parking is available at the Brisbane Transit Centre, Cornerstone car park and College Close car park.
  • If you plan to travel through this area, please allow extra travel time and follow the signage and direction of traffic controllers.
