Cross River Rail is a connectivity focused rail project, the foundation of something much bigger for South East Queensland.

Cross River Rail is the Queensland Government’s highest priority infrastructure project and an important part of our vision to cater for future growth, unlock economic opportunities and make Queensland a more internationally competitive state.

A 10.2 kilometre link from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, with 5.9 kilometres of tunnel under the Brisbane River and CBD, Cross River Rail will connect to both northern and southern rail networks from day one of operations, providing significant benefits to commuters from both directions. This second CBD rail river crossing will ease congestion, improve network reliability and increase accessibility to the Brisbane CBD, allowing more people to travel longer distances, with shorter journey times.

New, high capacity stations at four key inner city locations and two major station upgrades will provide direct access to more places of work, study and recreation.

  • Cross River Rail will relieve the bottleneck in the inner city and boost capacity for the entire South East Queensland rail network.
  • Improving capacity will allow more frequent services on all suburban lines.
  • Cross River Rail will take up to 18,500 car trips off major arterial roads every day.
  • New stations will improve access to key locations including hospitals, universities and sporting venues.
  • Cross River Rail will provide capacity – the equivalent of a 30 lane highway.
