It's time for a facelift
Queensland Rail is undertaking the biggest upgrade of South East Queensland's train stations since services began in the 1860s.
Around 50 of the most heavily patronised stations - almost one-third of all our train stations - will receive some form of upgrade in the $200 million station upgrade program.
These upgrades will ensure that train stations are better equipped to meet the needs of the 65 million passengers Queensland Rail carries each year. The station upgrades will deliver increased levels of safety, security and comfort for customers.
What will change?
The upgrades will vary depending on need and will include:
New lifts or escalators
New ticket offices|
Expanded car parks
Station building painting|
Access improvements to meet disability standards
Restoration of historic buildings
Platform raising to meet the train floor level|
Car park extensions at 10 stations|
LCD screens displaying service information
Other general refurbishments|
Stations selected for the upgrade were chosen according to a number of factors including patronage, their current condition and station accessibility.
Stations such as Narangba, Alderley, Eagle Junction, South Brisbane, and Sandgate are earmarked for major upgrades.
The stations below will have renovations or upgrades completed or commenced in the next 12 months:
