Albert Street Station

The first CBD train station built in more than 120 years, Albert Street Station will dramatically improve connectivity to the southern part of the CBD.

The new underground Albert Street Station will become the main pedestrian feeder point for QUT’s Gardens Point campus, the parliamentary precinct, the new Queen’s Wharf development, an upgraded Eagle Street business district and the City Botanic Gardens. It will also provide easy access to Elizabeth Street and Queen Street Mall.

An aerial view of Brisbane’s CBD, zooming down to street level. Arrive at Albert Street, approaching from the southern end of the city to see the new Albert Street station.

A cutaway view of the station appears, showing the underground levels leading down to the new station platform, and tunnel. Albert Street station will be 31 metres underground – the deepest of the new Cross River Rail stations.

A train travels through the tunnel and arrives at the station. Zoom in through the train, and step onto the underground platform. The platform stretches 220m in length, running from the corner of Mary and Albert Streets all the way to Elizabeth Street.

Automatic doors and glass screens separate the train tunnel from the platform. Escalators and lifts will take passengers up to concourse level, where Translink ticketing gates are located. Beyond the ticketing gates, more escalators and lifts lead up another two levels to the ground-floor entry.

Outside the station, a pedestrian plaza on Albert Street provides easy access to the surrounding streets for commuters and visitors to get to their destinations.
