Six southside stations to be upgraded as part of Cross River Rail

Six stations on Brisbane’s southside will benefit from significant upgrades as part of the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project.

Stations to be upgraded include: Fairfield, Yeronga, Yeerongpilly, Moorooka, Rocklea and Salisbury.

A third platform will be added to these stations and the heights of the existing platforms raised to accommodate the NGR trains which will travel through Cross River Rail’s twin tunnels.

To coincide with these works, further upgrades will be delivered at these stations by the Cross River Rail contractor, funded by the Queensland Government’s station accessibility upgrade program.

Delivering both packages of work at the same time by the same contractor will minimise disruption for commuters and maximise savings.

Station accessibility will be boosted with new overpasses, lifts, kiss’n’ride infrastructure and bike facilities included in Cross River Rail’s proposed package of works.

Details of these station upgrades are included in the ‘Request for Project Change’ submitted to the Coordinator-General with other design innovations and improvements for the Cross River Rail Project.

Planned changes can be viewed on the Coordinator-General’s website and community submissions can be made from 20 May until 5 pm Friday 14 June 2019.
