Station Accessibility Upgrade Program

Station upgrade program

Through Queensland Rail’s ongoing Station Upgrade Program, we are focused on making the improvements to our stations and facilities which allow all customers to travel safely and easily.
 
As part of this Program, the State Government recently committed $212 million to deliver accessibility upgrades to high priority stations across the next five years, including:

  • Graceville
  • Dinmore
  • Alderley
  • Newmarket
  • Nambour
  • Strathpine
  • Boondall
  • Morayfield
  • Auchenflower.

These upgrades will significantly improve access to the stations for all customers including those with disabilities, the elderly, parents with prams, people with injuries or even simply those carrying luggage. Additional stations will be announced in the future.

For more information about your station upgrade or to join a project mailing list for regular updates, email stationsupgrade@qr.com.au or phone the project team on 1800 722 203 (free call).

Alderley update (November 2017)

With the opening of the station's new lifts in early November 2017, Alderley's upgrade is now complete.

Dinmore update (November 2017)

At Dinmore, station accessibility upgrade works were completed mid-2017.

Graceville update (November 2017)

The Graceville station accessibility upgrade was completed in September 2017, with a community family fun day event held at the station to mark the opening.

The current Graceville station subway mural was installed in 2009 under Queensland Rail's Positive pARTnerships program. Due to extensive construction works in the subway during works, we have the opportunity to renew the subway mural. Community feedback was sought on two options: Repair damage (patch and repaint damaged sections of the existing mural) or replace with a new design.

We thank the community for taking the time to provide input and we will share results of the consultation shortly.   

Newmarket update (November 2017)

At Newmarket, the upgrade works are complete. The new lift, connecting the footbridge and subway to the platform level, opened in early November 2017. The temporary platforms and station entrances at the Wilston Road level crossing are now closed. All customer access to the station is via the new footbridge (Abuklea Street) or subway (Wilston Road, near the bus stop).

We thank customers and the local communities for their patience throughout these station upgrades.

Station prioritisation

The priority list of stations to receive upgrades is continually under review to ensure stations of greatest need are accurately recognised.
 
With 152 stations in the South East Queensland area, the prioritisation of accessibility upgrades is determined by considering a range of factors, including:

  • patronage
  • nearby community facilities
  • existing degree of accessibility
  • existing asset condition.

Queensland Rail’s approach to prioritise stations for an upgrade has the endorsement of Queensland Rail’s Accessibility Reference Group which comprises of representatives from peak disability organisations including Guide Dogs Queensland, Better Hearing Australia, MS Society, Endeavour Foundation, Queenslanders with Disabilities Network and Vision Australia.
