Cross River Rail. It’s happening.

We’re building South East Queensland’s number one infrastructure project.

Cross River Rail unlocks a bottleneck at the core of our network, allowing more trains to run more often and enabling a turn-up-and-go’ transport system that will benefit the whole of South East Queensland

Four new high capacity underground stations and an upgrade of the Exhibition station at RNA Showgrounds will also provide direct access to more places of work, study and recreation

With the South East Queensland population forecast to reach almost 5 million people by 2036, Cross River Rail is critical to help deal with population growth and preserving our great local lifestyle.

South East Queensland Benefits

Cross River Rail will free up the transport network right across South East Queensland by removing a bottleneck across the Brisbane River. By opening up the inner city rail network and improving transport connections across the region, it will provide a critical boost to the South East Queensland economy.

Cross River Rail will get commuters home faster, help to manage population growth and create thousands of jobs. This is the start of something big.
