Boggo Road Station Precinct

The new Boggo Road station will not only easily link passenger to the South East Busway, Park Road station and Brisbane Metro services, it will also stimulate growth of the existing health, science and education precinct.

Proposed Boggo Road Precinct

A Health, Science and Education Super Precinct

Boggo Road precinct is a globally-recognised innovation hub in the fields of science, health, education and academic research.

From 2024, the precinct will have a new underground train station at its centre, designed to improve transport connectivity and ensure more trains can run more often to, from and through Boggo Road.

The Princess Alexandra (PA) Hospital, to the west of the tracks, is the second largest Hospital in Queensland, nationally recognised for trauma services and is home to Queensland’s major organ transplant centre.

The Translational Research Institute is Australia’s first ‘bench to ‘bedside’ medical research institute. With education partners including The University of Queensland (UQ) and QUT, as well as commercial partners including Mater Research and leading bio-pharmaceutical manufacturer Patheon, the institute is renowned for its ground-breaking collaborations and discoveries.

To the east of the tracks is the Ecosciences facility developed by Queensland government, CSIRO and UQ’s Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation.

This ‘without walls’ collaborative environment for scientists is dedicated to solving some of Australia’s biggest natural resources and environmental challenges.

Cross River Rail has the potential to unlock opportunities for the further development of Boggo Road as a world-renowned super-precinct.

The new underground station will stimulate growth of the existing health, science and education precinct with more than 114,000 commuters expected to use the station each week.

Development Potential

The Boggo Road area has a number of developable land sites and potential for redevelopment of existing infrastructure.

Cross River Rail is developing a precinct concept designed to explore these development opportunities and the image slider below shows some alternative concepts to connect existing and potential future developments on either side of the rail network.
