Cross River Rail - Brisbane Grove, NSW

Source: uWorkin


The Cross River Rail Project

Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 kilometre rail line running from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 kilometres of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and CBD.

It will deliver four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street and upgrades to Dutton Park and Exhibition stations. Cross River Rail will unlock the bottleneck at the core of the South East Queensland rail network, allowing more trains to run more often and integrating with new roads and bus services to enable a turn-up-and-go transport system for the whole region.

It is a critical public transport infrastructure project which will improve our quality of life, help our economy keep growing, generate thousands of jobs, and activate urban development.

Precincts around the new high-capacity stations will be significantly revitalised, helping Brisbane to evolve as a world-class city.

The Project is already in delivery with an extensive program of early works well progressed.

Tunnelling construction is targeted for completion by 2024, after which a detailed commissioning and testing program will begin.
