Central station upgrade

The Central station upgrade program will modernise the station and improve accessibility and functionality throughout.

The first stage of the refurbishment – the back of house facilities including offices, customer communication and first aid areas – was completed in April 2017.

To ensure Central station was fully operational without works underway during the Commonwealth Games, a range of front of house works were delivered ahead of the Games which included cleaning, painting, new lighting and fans, tile repairs, column cladding, lift and escalator maintenance, as well as replacement of roof sheeting on the outer concourse. 

The planning for the remainder of the upgrade work is now progressing, which will include major works such as platform raising, new lifts and escalators.

Queensland Rail will ensure its customers are kept informed of delivery timeframes as this planning work progresses.
