Once fully cleared, the area between Vulture Street and Stanley Street in Woolloongabba, directly adjacent to the Woolloongabba Busway will become the staging area for the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) and Roadheaders. These TBMs will be used to drill the twin tunnels after which the site will become the location of the new underground Woolloongabba station.

The Goprint building demolition was completed by Lawton-based company Caylamax Demolitions, you can read more about this below.

Before construction can begin, two more buildings on the site need to be removed from the area: the Landcentre and the South Brisbane Dental Hospital.

An Expression of Interest for the Landcentre demolition and site remediation works was released on 23 March 2018 and closed on 12 April.

Cross River Rail Delivery Authority has now invited shortlisted companies to submit tenders for the demolition of the Landcentre building and South Brisbane Dental Hospital at Woolloongabba.

The Delivery Authority has engaged the Department of Housing and Public Works to manage this procurement process.  Read more about the Tender here.
