Project Overview

The $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project is a 10.2 km rail line between Dutton Park and Bowen Hills that includes a 5.9 km tunnel under the Brisbane River and Brisbane CBD. The project includes construction of four new high-capacity underground stations (Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street, Roma Street) and redevelopment of two existing overground stations (Dutton Park and Exhibition) which will be used by 164,000 passengers a day. Each new station will generate opportunities for property development and economic growth in these inner-city precincts.
