Buranda station upgrade

Queensland Rail is upgrading Buranda station to improve accessibility and make it easier and safer for customers to use.

The works are part of the Queensland Rail Station Accessibility Upgrade Program which focuses on providing greater accessibility to rail services.

The station upgrade is designed to achieve independent accessibility, meaning that all train platforms can be accessed independently via paths, ramps or lifts, without the need to use stairs.

Features of the upgrade include:

  • a new pedestrian footbridge with lift access
  • raised section of platform encompassing the core zone and assisted boarding point
  • upgraded hearing augmentation loop and tactile platform surfaces
  • upgraded security cameras and lighting around the core zone
  • new wayfinding and platform signage around the core zone.

Artist's impressions for Buranda station are available in the ‘Resources’ section, below.

Feedback can be provided by contacting the project team via phone, email or mail as outlined under 'Enquiries'.
