With the addition of a new underground station, Roma Street will become our State’s most significant transport interchange, and generate opportunities for urban renewal of one of Brisbane’s most under-utilised inner city precincts.View Precinct

The building often cited as one of Brisbane’s ugliest – the Brisbane Transit Centre – will be demolished to make way for Cross River Rail’s new underground Roma Street Station and the proposed Brisbane Live development.
With an 18,000 capacity world-class arena as its centrepiece, the Roma Street precinct, just like the LA Live complex, would become Queensland’s premier entertainment venue hosting major live concerts and world-class sporting events right in the heart of the city.
Planning for Brisbane Live is progressing with the Business Case for this market-led proposal underway.
When complete the new station is expected to be used by more than 230,000 commuters every week, the equivalent of over four capacity crowds at Suncorp Stadium.
