A vibrant, world-class centre for community, sport and health
The Woolloongabba station precinct will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use hub, linking commercial, residential and retail development with access to world-class public transport and one of Australia’s most iconic sports stadiums.
Concepts for the future of the precinct include a land bridge to span Main Street providing easy access on game days, as well as improved public spaces and opportunities for new retail and commercial developments that will encourage even more visitors to the area, outside of major event days.
Woolloongabba Station and Precinct concepts
Cross River Rail doesn’t just mean a new high-capacity underground station for The Gabba, it means there is an opportunity to develop a new ‘Station to Stadium’ precinct above the station. This video includes concept developments and designs which are not final or approved.
The video starts with an aerial view of the rail alignment highlighted and the camera begins to zoom in on Woolloongabba.
The Woolloongabba precinct is highlighted and walking routes from the new station to The Gabba, Vulture Street, Stanely Street and Logan Road are displayed.
The camera zooms down to the proposed forecourt of The Gabba as ghosted buildings start to display around the precinct. The camera then moves across the proposed station-to-stadium connection and then moves underground to show a side on view of the station.
A cutaway view of the new Woolloongabba station shows the station platform three levels below ground. The South East Busway is visible at ground level, and the interior of the station shows lifts and escalators taking people from ground level to the underground platform.
A train arrives at the platform and the view zooms in through the train carriage onto the station platform.
The camera moves up three sets of escalators to the ground level concourse and then outside, revealing a plaza of trees, gardens and concepts for possible commercial, retail and residential developments in the surrounding precinct area.
The camera than pans up to finish with an aerial view of the precinct.
Revitalising Woolloongabba's urban heart
Exciting concepts for the future of the precinct include a pedestrian land bridge to span Main Street providing a safe and vibrant ‘front door’ to The Gabba for sports fans and event attendees. The station-to-stadium connection will make game days easier for fans and families, and provide alternative pedestrian access to the Cross River Rail and South East Busway stations.
The new underground Woolloongabba station will provide passengers with high frequency rail services for the first time, opening up new public transport options for local residents. Just steps away, the South East Busway will allow you to transfer between trains and buses to take you anywhere you need to go, all around Brisbane.
Transforming everyday life
Once Cross River Rail is operational, the new Woolloongabba station will be just a few minutes journey from the CBD, making the station site an ideal location for urban renewal and economic development opportunities. New and improved public spaces and the world-class public transport made possible by Cross River Rail, will transform everyday life for Woolloongabba residents as much as it will improve access for visitors to The Gabba on game days.
