Experience Cross River Rail in 3D at new centre

It was announced today that a new Cross River Rail Experience Centre will be opening to the public from Wednesday 25 September 2019.

Visitors to the new Centre will be able to explore all aspects of Queensland’s largest infrastructure project using immersive, innovative digital technologies.

A ground-breaking virtual reality theatre allows groups to explore Cross River Rail’s stations, tunnels and over-station development in way that creates a very real sense of just how transformational this project will be for the whole of South East Queensland.

Other experiences include a Discovery Table with a scale model of Brisbane city, 3D projections and host of other interactive features.

One experience even transports you back in time to see station locations as they were in 1819 and we have worked with Queensland Museum to ensure that visitors can understand the history of travel and transport as much as we are providing a window on the future.

Elsewhere in the Centre you can take a driver’s-eye trip through Cross River Rail’s twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and use touch-screens to understand everything you need to know about why Cross River Rail is being built, how it will be built and what it means for the future of public transport in South East Queensland.

The Experience Centre is located on Level 1, 151A Elizabeth Street.

The Experience Centre will be open Wednesday to Monday

  • 10.00am – 4.00 pm weekdays (closed on Tuesdays)
  • 10.00am – 2.00pm weekends
  • Entry is free

As well as being free and open to the public six-days a week, the Experience Centre will host school groups and will be used by engineers for technical delivery.

The digital-first approach at the Centre is perfect for engaging students of all ages and we look forward to ensuring the State’s largest infrastructure project is utilised as a live learning opportunity for Queensland school children.

There is so much to be learned on projects of the size of Cross River Rail and the Experience Centre will be the place to capture those learnings and share them with the engineers and builders of the future.
