One of the largest infrastructure projects ever undertaken in Queensland has begun construction.
The Cross River Rail will connect the northern and southern rail networks in Brisbane’s CBD with a 10.2 km line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills and 5.9 km of the alignment being tunnelled under Brisbane River.
The project will deliver four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street, as well as upgrades to eight above ground stations at Salisbury, Rocklea, Moorooka, Yeerongpilly, Yeronga, Fairfield, Dutton Park and Exhibition.
Three new stations on the Gold Coast line at Pimpama, Helensvale North and Merrimac will also be constructed.
Cross River Rail now has works underway at multiple sites and is set to be operational in 2024, which will enable extra network capacity required to operate higher frequency public transport.
In April, the Cross River Delivery Authority announced it had selected the preferred joint ventures – Pulse Consortium and Unity Alliance – to deliver two of the AU$5.4 billion project’s major contracts.
