Last chance to take part in historic Cross River Rail tunnel walk

If you’ve ever wanted to explore Cross River Rail’s tunnels deep beneath Brisbane, now is your chance. But you’ll have to be quick.

ABC Radio Brisbane is giving listeners the opportunity to win one of 20 double passes for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit a section of Cross River Rail tunnel at the project’s Northern Portal.

It is the first time the public has had the opportunity to go into a tunnel, and may be the only opportunity to do so before services begin, with tracks soon to be laid.

People in high-vis workwear as they walk through a tunnel.

The tour involves walking about half-a-kilometre into one of the project’s twin tunnels, descending roughly 30 metres underground before reaching the second cross passage (a small tunnel that joins both parallel Cross River Rail tunnels).

ABC Radio Brisbane’s giveaway has already begun, but it’s not too late.

Listen between 5am to 8am each weekday until Friday 20 May for your chance to win one of the double passes still on offer.

If you are successful, you and your guest will need to meet a number of physical requirements, including being able to walk roughly three kilometres unassisted.
