Extension of the CBD and Brisbane’s gateway to jobs, tourism and recreation

The significant improvement in transport connectivity and revitalisation of the Roma Street precinct made possible with Cross River Rail, will generate opportunities for urban renewal and enhancement of public spaces in the area.

It will also stimulate private sector development opportunities to create new commercial and residential hubs in one of the city’s most under-utilised areas.

The video starts with an aerial view of Brisbane with the rail alignment highlighted. The camera pans down to Roma Street opposite the Brisbane Transit Centre.

The screen wipes to show the proposed concept for the Roma Street station entrance, revealing a tree lined public space with seating and potential for food and beverage outlets.

A cutaway of Roma Street station is shown which reveals that the station platform is four levels below the street entrance. The new station building provides inter-connectivity for both the busway and existing railways, which will transition Roma Street into the major transport hub for Brisbane.

The video closes showing the potential for development opportunities around the station, including the multi-use arena, Brisbane Live.
